On 30 November 2017, the Wienerberger AG Managing Board decided to acquire its own bearer shares at market price on the Vienna Stock Exchange.

The Wienerberger AG Managing Board hereby announces the early completion of the share buyback 2017/2018 as of 5 September 2018 due to the fact that the maximum repurchase volume of 1,200,000 shares has been repurchased by 5 September 2018.
