The Managing Board of Wienerberger AG was authorized by the 149th Annual General Meeting on June 14, 2018, to take the following steps (pursuant to sect. 65 para. 1(8) of the Stock Corporation Act): During a period of 30 months, the Managing Board can buy back own ordinary bearer shares of the Company, withdraw or sell shares bought back without further resolution by the Annual General Meeting, and dispose of own shares in a way other than via the stock exchange or through public offering. The shares may be acquired at a price per share of not less than € 1.00 and not more than twice the share price quoted on the stock exchange on June 14, 2018.
The last time Wienerberger AG increased share capital by releasing new shares was in 2009. As a result of the decision made during the 145th annual general meeting, the managing board is authorized to increase share capital by releasing up to 17.6 million shares. This corresponds with up to 15% of the share capital. As a result, in certain circumstances, shareholders’ legally permitted subscription privileges will not be allowed. However, the number of shares that will be subject to this rule must not exceed 5% of the overall share capital.
