AB Volvo – Information on cancellation of shares
At the Annual General Meeting of AB Volvo in June this year it was resolved, as per the Board’s proposal, to cancel all treasury shares held by the company. The cancellation is registered now in July, so we wanted to remind of the forthcoming change of the total No. of shares and votes in AB Volvo.
The cancellation will give rise to changes in the owners’ capital- and voting shares in AB Volvo, why applicable flagging rules may be considered. These rules imply, among other things, that shareholders whose holdings reach or pass (up or down) any of the thresholds 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 50, 66 2/3 or 90 per cent of the shares or votes in the company shall inform the company and the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority of such change.
The General Meeting’s decision cancels 20,728,135 series A shares and 74,240,001 series B shares in AB Volvo (representing approximately 4,5 % of the registered capital and 4,4 % of the registered votes). Further changes in the share capital may also follow from share conversions, which are requested by shareholders from time to time. Information on the number of registered shares and votes as of 30 June 2020 is available below.
Any change in the number of shares and votes in AB Volvo is published in a press release the last trading day of the month the change takes place, as per applicable rules. The above changes are expected to be published on Friday 31 July.
