Hamburg, 26 June 2019 - The Management Board of Bijou Brigitte modische Accessoires AG has decided to buy back shares of Bijou Brigitte AG (ISIN DE0005229504, bearer shares) in the period from 27 June 2019 to 17 June 2024 in the amount of up to EUR 10,000,000.00 under the following conditions. Bijou Brigitte modische Accessoires AG thus makes use of the authorisation granted by the Annual General Meeting on 18 June 2019 to acquire own shares in accordance with Section 71 (1) (8) of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG) in the amount of up to 10% of the share capital of EUR 8,100,000.00 registered at the time this resolution was adopted. The bought-back shares can be used for all purposes set out in the authorisation resolution passed by the Annual General Meeting on 18 June 2019. If the current authorisation to acquire shares is cancelled by an ordinary Annual General Meeting before 17 June 2024 and replaced by a new one, the share buy-back programme can be continued on the basis of the new authorisation resolution.
The share buy-back programme will be carried out on behalf of and for the account of the company by a bank commissioned by the company, which makes its decisions on the date of acquisition of the shares and the respective purchase volume independently of and uninfluenced by the company.
The buy-back should take place exclusively via the electronic trading platform of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (Xetra). The purchase price paid per share bought back by the company (excluding ancillary purchase costs) may not exceed or fall short by more than 10% of the average stock exchange price of the company's shares in the closing auction in the Xetra trading system (or a comparable successor system) on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on the three trading days preceding the obligation to purchase own shares.
The bank is obliged to observe the trading conditions of Article 3 of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052 of 8 March 2016 (EU Regulation), the provisions of the authorisation resolution of the Annual General Meeting of 18 June 2019 and all other relevant provisions.
In accordance with Article 3 (2) of the EU Regulation, the bank may not, in determining the purchase price, exceed the price of the last independent transaction on the relevant stock exchange or the currently highest independent bid. The higher value is decisive. In accordance with Article 3 (3) of the EU Regulation, the bank may not, on a given day, acquire more than 25% of the average daily share turnover on the stock exchange where the purchase takes place. The average share turnover is calculated from the average daily trading volume of the last twenty trading days prior to the date of acquisition.
The share buy-back programme may be suspended and, if applicable, resumed at any time to the extent permissible under the relevant legal provisions.
The transactions will be disclosed in a detailed and aggregated form in accordance with the requirements of Article 5 (3) of the EU Regulation no later than the end of the seventh trading day after their execution. In addition, Bijou Brigitte AG will announce the transactions on its website at www.group.bijou-brigitte.com/investor-relations and ensure that the information remains publicly accessible for at least five years from the date of disclosure.
