MorphoSys AG. (4/8/15). "Press Release: MorphoSys to Start Share Buy-Back Program".
The Management Board of MorphoSys AG (FSE: MOR; Prime Standard Segment, TecDAX; OTC: MPSYY) today announced the decision to repurchase own shares over the stock market for a total purchase price of up to EUR 5.39 million (excluding ancillary costs). The share buy-back will take place during the time period from April 9, 2015 to April 17, 2015, and is based on the authorization of the Annual General Meeting on May 23, 2014. On the basis of the current share price (EUR 57.45; Xetra closing price as of April 7, 2015), the total purchasing volume amounts to up to 93,820 shares or 0.36% of the registered share capital of the Company.
The Company intends to use the shares for its long-term incentive programs for its Executive Board and the Senior Management Group, but the shares can also be used for all other legally permitted purposes stated in the authorization of the Annual General Meeting of 2014.
The relevant conditions of the shareholders' resolution passed in the Annual General Meeting 2014 on the authorization to acquire and to use its own shares shall apply. The purchase price paid per share may not be more than 10% higher or 20% lower than the Company's share price determined by the opening auction in the Xetra trading system on the day of trading.
The share buy-back is to be handled independently of and uninfluenced by the Company through an appointed bank in compliance with the safe-harbor provisions.
MorphoSys will provide regular information on the progress of the share buy-back program on the Company's website www.morphosys.com/share-buyback.
