Share buyback program

In June 2022, Marel initiated a share buyback program on Nasdaq Iceland for up to 4 million shares, or about 0.52% of the total issued share capital in the company and Euronext Amsterdam for up to 1 million shares, or about 0.13% of the total issued share capital. As part of the buyback program, Marel purchased 4.6 million shares (EUR 19.8 million) in the period 1 June 2022 to 2 September 2022. The buyback program on Nasdaq Iceland was discontinued after 1 July 2022, when the maximum number of shares to be purchased was reached and discontinued on Euronext Amsterdam on 2 September 2022, when the buyback program was ended. The purpose of the buyback program was to meet the company’s obligations under share incentive programs with employees. No new buyback programs have been initiated since the latest program was discontinued in September 2022.
