Aperam S.A. / Key word(s): Share Buyback
Aperam announces additional share buyback program
06-May-2022 / 07:00 CET/CEST

 

Luxembourg, 6 May 2022 (07:00 CET) - Aperam announces today an additional share buyback program of up to 100 millions euros (for a total of up to 200 million euros in 2022, with 100 million euros completed on April 19, 2022), and a maximum of 3.5 million shares under the authorization given by the annual general meeting of shareholders held on May 4, 2022 (the “Program”).


Aperam will appoint an investment services provider to execute the repurchases of shares in the open market during open and closed periods.

Aperam intends to repurchase per day a variable number of shares at market price, for an aggregate maximum amount of one hundred (100) million euros and a maximum of 3.5 million (three point five million) shares, over a period from 9 May 2022 up and until 31 December 2022. The price per share, of the shares to be bought under the Program, shall not exceed 110% of the average of the final listing prices of the 30 trading days preceding the three trading days prior to each date of repurchase, in accordance to the resolution of the annual general meeting of shareholders held on 4 May 2022.


Simultaneously, the Mittal family has declared its intention to enter into a share repurchase agreement with Aperam, to sell each trading day on which Aperam has purchased shares under the Program, an equivalent number of shares, at the proportion of the Mittal family’s stake of 40.96% of issued and outstanding shares of Aperam, at the same price as the shares repurchased on the open market. The effect of the share repurchase agreement is to maintain Mittal family’s voting rights in Aperam’s issued share capital (net of Treasury Shares) at the current level, pursuant to the Program.

The shares acquired under this buyback program are intended:

  • to be canceled to reduce the share capital of Aperam, and

  • to meet Aperam’s obligations arising from employee share programs.
