Based on the authorisation given by the Annual General Meeting on 6 May 2021, the Board of Directors of Loihde Plc has decided to start the acquisition of the company’s own shares.

However, the amount used for acquiring shares will be at most EUR 5,000,000.
The shares are acquired otherwise than in proportion to the shareholdings of the shareholders by public trading at the market price at the time of acquisition on the First North Growth Market Finland marketplace maintained by Nasdaq Helsinki Oy. The acquisition of the company’s own shares starts on 10 January 2022 at the earliest and ends on 4 May 2022 at the latest. The acquisition of the company’s own shares is paid for with the company’s distributable unrestricted equity.
The purpose of acquiring the company’s own shares is to develop the company’s financing structure by lowering its equity and using the shares as part of the company’s share-based incentive schemes.
