  • The share buy-back may not be executed at a price which exceeds the higher of (i) the price of the last independent trade and (ii) the highest current independent purchase bid on Nasdaq Copenhagen at the time of the purchase.

  • The maximum number of shares to be purchased on each trading day may not exceed 25% of the average daily volume of MT Højgaard Holding A/S’ shares traded on Nasdaq Copenhagen over the last 20 trading days prior to the date of purchase.

  • MT Højgaard Holding A/S may suspend or terminate the programme at any time.

MT Højgaard Holding A/S will, throughout the duration of the programme, on a weekly basis issue a separate company announcement in respect of the transactions made under the programme, including the number and the value of the repurchased shares.

The launch of the share buy-back programme does not affect the previously disclosed forecast guidance for 2020.
