Launch of new share buy-back scheme according to the safe harbour method

(PresseBox) ( Bremen, )
The Board of Directors of DSV has decided to buy back shares in accordance with the authorisation granted by the Extraordinary General Meeting on 25 October 2011.

As at today, 21 February 2012, DSV holds 4,936,650 treasury shares of a nominal value of DKK 1 each, corresponding to 2.60% of DSV's share capital.


The purpose of the share buy-back is to hedge the Group's incentive programme and to adjust the capital structure. At the Annual General Meeting of DSV it will be proposed that shares which are not used for the hedge of the incentive programme will be cancelled.

Time frame

The share buy-back period runs from 21 February 2012 to 23 April 2012, both days inclusive. During this period, purchases may not exceed DKK 200 million under a share buy-back programme prepared in accord­ance with the provisions of European Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2273/2003 of 22 November 2003, the so-called "Safe Harbour" method that protects the board of directors and executive board of listed companies from violating insider trading legislation in connection with share buy-backs.

Buy-back terms

- DSV is required to retain a financial adviser who is to make its own trading decisions independently of and without influence from DSV and execute the buy-back within the announced limits. DSV has retained Nordea Bank Danmark A/S as its financial adviser and lead manager for the share buy-back.
- The maximum amount that DSV may pay for shares purchased under the share buy-back programme is DKK 200 million, and no more than 2,000,000 shares, corresponding to 1.05% of the current share capital of DSV A/S, may be purchased.
- No shares may be bought back at a price exceeding the higher of the share price of the latest independent trade and the highest current independent offer price at NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen at the time of trading. As a result of this restriction, DSV can hardly expect to make purchases up to the daily share buy-back limit.
- The maximum number of DSV shares which may be purchased on each business day corresponds to 25% of the average daily trading volume of DSV shares on NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen over the last 20 trading days prior to the date of purchase.
- The reporting obligations under Danish law and the rules of NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen must be fulfilled within the applicable time limits.
