The Programme shall run from 3 February 2020 to 30 April 2020; however, no longer than until the funds allotted to acquire the Shares are exhausted. The Board of Directors of the Company, acting in the best interest of the Company, after consulting the Supervisory Board of the Company is authorised to:

– cease the acquisition of Shares before 30 April 2020 or before all the funds allotted for their acquisition are exhausted,

The Programme shall be carried out in tranches executed in the period specified above. 

In the 1st Tranche the Issuer intends to acquire not more than 325,000 (say: three hundred and twenty-five thousand) Shares, and the proposed price (compensation) is PLN 4.00 (say: four zloty) per Share. The aforementioned proposal will be the subject of the opinion of the Supervisory Board of the Company.


The shares which would be the subject matter of the acquisition under the 1st Tranche of the Buy-back give right to 325,000 votes, constitute 1.00% of the share capital of the Company and give right to 1.00% of all votes in the General Meeting.

Under the 1st Tranche, the acquisition of own shares will take place by concluding transactions outside the organised trade as a result of presenting to shareholders Bids to Acquire Shares. The entity acting as an intermediary in conducting the 1st Tranche of own shares buy-back is Dom Maklerski Banku Ochrony Środowiska S.A., ul. Marszałkowska 78/80, 00-517 Warsaw.
