Furthermore, it was resolved that the remaining part of such treasury shares shall be annulled.
Pursuant to the resolution of the Extraordinary General Meeting, as further elaborated by the Board of Directors today on 30 November 2018, the Company has based on the above-mentioned redemption ratio and requirement, issued i.e. transferred in total 1,242 treasury shares to the Receiving Shareholders without consideration so that the number of shares held by such Receiving Shareholders is dividable with 30.
