Share Buy-Back Programme
At the Company's last annual general meeting on 26 July 2018 (the "AGM"), Weiss Korea shareholders granted the Company a general buy-back authority of up to 40% of the Company's issued share capital.
The Company is about to go into a closed period due to its annual results for the twelve months ended 31 December 2018. These results will be published on or around 18 April 2019. The Company has appointed N+1 Singer Advisory LLP to manage an irrevocable programme during the closed period (the "Closed Period Buy-Back Programme") to buy-back ordinary shares within certain pre-set parameters. The Closed Period Buy-Back Programme will commence today and will run until the end of the closed period, being the date of publication of the Company's Annual Report for the twelve months ended 31 December 2018, unless completed earlier.
Any shares purchased in the Closed Period Buy-Back Programme will count towards the Company's general buy-back authority of 40% of the Company's issued share capital, as approved at the Company's AGM.
Weiss Korea confirms that it currently has no inside information.
