The Board of Directors of Castellum AB (publ) has, based on the authorisation from the Annual General Meeting held on March 19, 2020, resolved on repurchases of own shares.
The purpose of the repurchases is to be able to adapt the capital structure of the company to its capital needs and thereby contribute to an increased shareholder value. Castellum's financial position is solid. The Board of Directors' assessment is that there is room for executing the repurchases and, at the same time, meet the financing and liquidity requirements of the business.
The repurchases may be carried out on one or several occasions, during the period from April 30, 2020 until the next Annual General Meeting, only to the extent that the company, after each repurchase, will hold a maximum of ten per cent of all the shares in the company. The repurchases may be carried out by trading on Nasdaq Stockholm in accordance with its Rule Book for Issuers, at a price per share which is within the registered price range on Nasdaq Stockholm at the time, by which is meant the range between the highest buying price and the lowest selling price published continuously by Nasdaq Stockholm. Payment of the shares shall be made in cash.
Initially, the company intends to keep the shares that will be repurchased in order to be able to transfer own shares as payment, or in order to finance real property investments and/or acquisitions of real property companies/businesses.
At the time of this press release, Castellum does not hold any own shares.
This information is information that Castellum is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation. The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the contact persons set out below, at 15:50 CET on April 30, 2020.
