Repurchase of ITAB TO 1 (2008/2012) warrants

ITAB Shop Concept AB’s Annual General Meeting held on 3 June 2008 decided to introduce an incentive scheme for company employees through the issue of warrants. Twenty-three employees participated in the scheme and a total of 233,500 warrants were subscribed for at an issue price of SEK 11.50 per warrant, resulting in a capital injection of about SEK 2.7 million. Each warrant entitles the holder to subscribe for one Class B share in ITAB Shop Concept AB during the period 1 September 2011 through 23 March 2012 at a price of SEK 97 per share.

On 8 February 2012, the Board decided to extend a repurchase offer in which the company offered to buy back warrants from warrant holders at a price based on the share’s closing price on 9 February 2012. The share’s closing price on 9 February was SEK 114 and the price of the warrant was calculated at SEK 17.

Twenty-one employees holding 213,000 warrants accepted this offer, which means the repurchase amount was about SEK 3.6 million. After the repurchase, the remaining warrants total 20,500 ITAB TO 1 (2008/2012).

The purpose of the repurchase offer is to facilitate for holders to recover the value of the warrants.
