The Board of Directors of Caverion Corporation has resolved to acquire a maximum of 500,000 company's own shares based on the authorization given by the Annual General Meeting on March 17, 2014. The shares will be purchased to accomplish and hedge the long-term share-based incentive plan 2014−2016 for the company’s key senior executives. There is a weighty financial reason for the directed acquisition, as the purpose of the incentive plan is to encourage reaching the financial targets of the company.
The shares will be acquired in a public trading arranged by NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd at the market price. The purchases of the shares will start on July 23, 2014 at the earliest and end on March 31, 2015 at the latest.
The shares shall be acquired according to the Rules of NASDAQ OMX Helsinki Ltd and otherwise according to the rules related to acquisition of company's own shares.
The authorization given by the Annual General Meeting to the Board of Directors covers the purchasing of a maximum of 12,500,000 company shares using the funds from the company's unrestricted equity.
