IFS continues repurchasing own shares
In addition to previously communicated repurchases, the board of directors of Industrial and Financial Systems, IFS AB (“IFS”), (XSTO: IFS), has decided, on the basis of the authorization received from the annual general meeting, to further repurchase a maximum of 250,000 B shares in IFS, which corresponds to approximately 1.0 percent of all shares in the company, for a maximum aggregate consideration of SKr 25 million.
The purpose of the repurchase is to accord the board a greater possibility to adjust the company’s capital structure and thereby contribute to increased stockholder value. The repurchase will be made on Nasdaq OMX Stockholm pursuant to applicable rules, at a share price that falls within the registered range between the highest bid price and the lowest asking price at the time of acquisition, provided the price does not exceed the higher of the price of the last independent trade and the highest current independent bid price. Repurchases will be made as soon as possible, during the period from February 9 up to and including March 21, 2012, subject to prevailing legal provisions.
The total number of shares of all series in IFS currently amounts to 25,979,922. As per the latest trading day, February 8, 2012, IFS held 698,907 B shares in own custody.
