Conditions for Bure’s voluntary redemption procedure

As previously communicated in connection with the year-end report, the Board of Bure Equity AB (publ) (“Bure” or “The company”) has decided to propose that the Annual General Meeting of Bure approve a voluntary redemption procedure instead of a dividend.

It is proposed that the voluntary redemption procedure be carried out by way of a cancellation of shares through a reduction in the share capital for repayment to the shareholders (“The redemption") and a simultaneous bonus issue without the issuance of new shares in order to restore the share capital.

To execute the redemption procedure, it is proposed that all holders of shares in the company on the record date receive one redemption right for each share held. Twenty (20) redemption rights are intended to entitle the holder to redemption of one Bure share in exchange for a cash redemption amount of SEK 38.00. A maximum of 4,482,286 shares can be subject to redemption through the proposal, whereby a maximum of around SEK 170.3 million can be distributed to Bure’s shareholders.
