Hypoport AG approves share repurchase programme

Berlin, 1 November 2016: The Management Board of Hypoport AG decided today to repurchase Company's own shares via the stock market. The total value of the share repurchase is set at EUR5.0 million plus transaction costs. The maximum price per share has been set to no more than EUR80.00 plus transaction costs. The share repurchase programme is to be concluded by no later than 31 March 2017.

This resolution follows the authorisation granted by the Annual Shareholders' Meeting on 10 June 2016 for the Company to purchase its own shares. The shares can be used for all of the purposes stated in the authorisation granted by the Annual Shareholders' Meeting. These include use of the shares as payment in the context of acquisitions and for servicing employee share ownership programmes. The Supervisory Board has approved this share repurchase programme.

The repurchase programme will be carried out in compliance with the provisions of Articles 5, 14 and 15 of Regulation (EU) No. 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council dated 16 April 2014 (Market Abuse Regulation) in conjunction with the provisions of Delegated Regulation (EU) No. 2016/1052 of the Commission dated 8 March 2016 (Delegated Regulation) with the exception of the purpose of repurchase. The latter is more broadly formulated than envisaged in Article 5 (2) of the Market Abuse Regulation.

Further details will be announced before the start of the share buyback via press release.
