Posted by OilVoice Press - OilVoice


The Board of Directors of Ørsted has decided to initiate a share buy-back programme and thereby exercise the authority granted by the general meeting on 20 May 2016 to buy own shares in accordance with section 198 of the Danish Companies Act.

The purpose of the share buy-back programme is to meet obligations arising from Ørsted's share-based incentive programme.

Time frame
The share buy-back programme will run from 1 November 2018 to 15 November 2018, both days inclusive. During this period, Ørsted will buy own shares in accordance with Regulation (EU) No. 596/2014 of the European Parliament and Council of 16 April 2014 and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052 of 8 March 2016, also referred to as the ‘Safe Harbour rules'.

Buy-back terms

  • Ørsted may repurchase shares up to 110,000 shares, corresponding to 0.03% of the current share capital of Ørsted, subject to a maximum total purchase price of DKK 51 million.
  • The purchase price per share shall be the price of the shares quoted at the time of the acquisition with a deviation of up to 10%.
  • The share buy-back may not be executed at a price which exceeds the higher of (i) the price of the last independent trade and (ii) the highest current independent purchase bid on the trading venue on which the purchase is carried out at the time of the purchase.
  • The maximum number of Ørsted shares that may be purchased on each business day may not exceed 25% of the average daily trading volume of Ørsted shares on the trading venue on which the purchase is carried out over the last 20 trading days prior to the date of purchase.
  • Ørsted has appointed Nordea Danmark, Filial af Nordea Bank Abp, Finland (“Nordea”) as lead manager of the programme. As lead manager, Nordea, will make its own trading decisions independently of Ørsted and execute the share buy-back within the announced limits.
  • Ørsted may terminate the programme at any time.             

On a weekly basis, Ørsted will publish a company announcement of any transactions under the programme.

The information provided in this announcement does not change Ørsted's financial guidance for the financial year 2018 or the announced expected investment level for 2018.
