Pullach, 15 March 2016 - The Managing Board of Sixt SE has - with consent of the Supervisory Board - resolved to buy back own ordinary and preference shares on the stock exchange for a total maximum purchase price of EUR 50 million (excluding incidental purchase expenses). The shares shall be bought back for the purpose of reducing the share capital by cancellation of acquired shares. The share buy-back program shall begin on 16 March 2016 (earliest possible purchase date) and shall end, at the latest, on 31 December 2016 (last possible purchase date).
The allocation of the total volume of repurchased shares between ordinary and preference shares will depend on the availability of the respective share classes for trading on the stock exchange. On the basis of the closing price of the ordinary and preference shares in Xetra-trading on 14 March 2016 and the assumption that the volume of repurchased ordinary and preference shares will correspond to the average proportion of these classes of shares traded in Xetra in the previous three months, the envisaged share buy-back volume of up to EUR 50 million would correspond to a buy-back of approximately 1.2 million shares, thereof approximately 700,000 ordinary and 500,000 preference shares. This is equivalent to approximately 2.5 % of the share capital of Sixt SE.
The share buy-back program shall be carried out in accordance with sections 14 para. 2, 20a para. 3 German Securities Trading Act (WpHG) in conjunction with EU Regulation (EG) No. 2273/2003 (so-called Safe Harbour) respectively after 3 July 2016 in accordance with the relevant provisions of EU Regulation (EU) No. 596/2014.
