Transactions in connection with share buyback programme
On 21 June 2023, Pandora announced a new share buyback programme, cf. Company announcement no. 796. The share buyback programme is executed in accordance with Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on market abuse (market abuse regulation).
The purpose of the programme is to reduce Pandora’s share capital and to meet obligations arising from company incentive programmes.
Under the programme Pandora will repurchase shares for an aggregate maximum amount of DKK 2.6 billion from 21 June until 2 February 2024 at the latest, both days inclusive. The first tranche of up to DKK 1.6 billion commenced on 21 June 2023 and will complete no later than 13 October 2023. The second tranche to reach the total amount of up to DKK 5.0 billion will commence upon conclusion of the first tranche and complete no later than 2 February 2024. Pandora has appointed BNP Paribas Exane as the sole lead manager on the first tranche.
The new programme follows the successful conclusion of Pandora’s DKK 2.4 billion share buy-back programme, which was set to end no later than 30th of June and was managed by Danske Bank (see Company Announcement No. 769). As the programme effectively ended on 19th June Pandora decided to advance the commencement of the new programme with effect from 21st June.
