The trade is in accordance with Skeljungur’s share buy-back program, announced to Nasdaq Iceland on October 8th, 2020. The main purpose of the program is to reduce the issued share capital of the company.

Skeljungur has now purchased a total of 24,820,946 own shares which corresponds to maximum of own shares that will be purchased according to the buy-back program. The purchase price for the bought shares is total ISK 198,514,001.

Before the share buy-back program began Skeljungur owned 24,820,946 of own shares or the equivalent of 1,25% of the issued share capital.

Skeljungur now owns a total of 49,641,892 shares or 2.50% of the Company’s share capital.

According to the buy-back program it was planned to buy up to 24,820,946 of the company’s own shares, which corresponds to 1,25% of the issued share capital, although the amount of the purchase price could not exceed ISK 250.000.000, provided that Skeljungur and its subsidiaries shall only hold a maximum of 10% of the company´s shares.

The repurchase according to the share buy-back program is therefore completed. The execution of the share buy-back program was in accordance with the Public Limited Company Act No. 2/1995 and Regulation on Insider Information and Market Manipulation No. 630/2005.
