Oma Savings Bank Plc has decided to commence a repurchase programme related to the acquisition of the company's own shares on the basis of the authorisation given by the Annual General Meeting on 30 March 2021. The maximum number of shares to be acquired in one or more tranches is 198,300, which corresponds to approximately 0.7% of the company's shares and votes. The company's total number of shares is 29,596,700. The company currently holds 11,700 of the company's own shares. The permission of the acquisition of own shares has been obtained by the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority (FIN-FSA).
