Gofore begins share purchase programme
Gofore Plc’s Board of Directors has decided to begin a purchase programme of the company’s own shares based on the authorization granted by the Annual General Meeting on 24 March 2023. Purpose of the purchase programme is to acquire the company’s own shares to be used in obligations related to current and possibly future incentive arrangements the staff of the Gofore Group and share-based rewards paid to key people.
The maximum number of shares to be purchased is 100,000, which corresponds to less than one percent of the company’s shares. However, no more than EUR 2.5 million will be used to acquire the shares. The shares shall be acquired otherwise than in proportion to the holdings of the shareholders in public trading organized by Nasdaq Helsinki Oy at the market price at the time of acquisition or otherwise at market price. The purchase of the company’s own shares shall commence at the earliest on 1 November 2023 and shall end at the latest on 19 January 2024. The purchase of shares will be funded with the company’s distributable unrestricted shareholders’ equity.
Gofore has appointed Evli Plc as the manager of the share purchase programme. The manager will make trading decisions independently of and without influence from Gofore, within the announced limits. This also applies to the timing of purchases.
Gofore can suspend or terminate the programme before its planned end date. In this case, Gofore issues a related stock exchange release. Before beginning the share purchase programme, Gofore has no own shares in its possession. Gofore Plc has a total of 15,660,139 shares.
The purchases will be carried out in accordance with the so-called safe harbor procedure referred to in the EU Market Abuse Regulation (Regulation No. 596/2014) and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052.
