Pursuant to the decision of the Annual General Meeting on 22 April 2013, Bure has cancelled 255,256 shares and thereby reduced the share capital by SEK 1,679,509.89.

In accordance with Chapter 4, 9 §, paragraph one of the Financial Instruments Trading Act (1991:980), a Swedish limited company whose shares are traded on a regulated market and which increases or reduces the total number of shares or votes in the company must publicly disclose the change. This disclosure shall take place on the last trading day of the calendar month in which the increase or reduction is made, so that information about the change is available to the public within the European Economic Area (EEA).

Bure publicly disclosed the above reduction in the number of shares on 3 June 2013, the first trading day in June. Since this disclosure was not made on the last trading day of the calendar month in which the reduction took place, i.e. on 31 May, Bure has been requested to disclose the same information on the last trading day of the current month, 31 July.

This information is subject to the disclosure requirements in the Financial Instruments Trading Act.
