Össur hf.: Össur hf. initiates a new share buyback program

18:02 Announcement from Össur hf. No. 53/2019 Reykjavk, 9 September 2019 Össur hf. has decided to initiate a new share buyback program (the Program) tomorrow, 10 September 2019, which will replace the share buyback program that was completed today, 9 September 2019. The Program will be carried out in accordance with Regulation No. 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on market abuse (MAR), and the Commissions delegated regulation 2016/1052. The purpose of the Program is to reduce the Companys share capital and adjust the capital structure by distributing capital to shareholders in line with the Companys Capital Structure and Dividend Policy. The Company may purchase up to 5,000,000 shares under the Program, corresponding to 1.2% of the current share capital. The total consideration for shares purchased under the Program shall not exceed USD 10 million. The daily purchase shall not exceed 25% of the average volume in the 20 trading days before the purchase on the regulated market where the transaction is carried out. The purchase price shall not be higher than the price of the last independent trade or the highest current independent bid, whichever is higher, on the regulated market where the transaction is carried out. The Program will be managed by Nordea, which shall make its trading decisions independently and without influence by the Company with regards to the timing of the purchases. The Companys purchases under the Program shall be disclosed in accordance with laws and regulations. The Program will end no later than 31 December 2019, but the Company is entitled to discontinue the Program at any time. The Company also reserves the right to buy back shares in block trades outside the Program with the aim to maintain net interest-bearing debt at 1.0x - 2.0x to EBITDA (excluding the impact of IFRS16 Leasing). Such transactions will only be made outside black-out periods, i.e. not within 30 days prior to publication of the Companys quarterly financial results, and when no insider information is available. Such transactions will be announced immediately after they have been carried out. According to an authorization granted by the Annual General Meeting in March 2015, the Company is allowed to purchase own shares of up to 10% of the Companys share capital as it stands each time. The authorization states that the purchase price shall not be higher than the price of the last independent trade or the highest current independent bid, whichever is higher, on the regulated market where the transaction is carried out. The authorization is valid until 12 March 2020.
