Oslo, 18 April 2016: Yara International ASA will hold its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 10 May at 17:00 CEST at Drammensveien 131, Oslo. The Nomination Committee proposes the re-election of all current Board members, and the Board asks the General Meeting to authorize a new share buy-back program.
The Board proposes that the existing share buy-back program is replaced by a new program, authorizing the Board to acquire up to 5% of Yara's shares before the next Annual General Meeting. Shares may be purchased within a price range of NOK 10 to NOK 1,000. Any shares acquired under the proposed program shall be subsequently cancelled, and Yara has entered into a new agreement with the Norwegian State to redeem shares on a pro-rata basis so that the State's ownership is unchanged.
The complete notice of the Annual General Meeting will be distributed to Yara's registered shareholders and is also available on Yara's website:
The Yara International ASA share will be traded ex dividend from Wednesday 11 May 2016.
