Share Buy-Back Program

Yara executes share buy-back programs as an integrated part of its shareholder policy. This is based on our belief that share buy-backs will contribute to a better reflection of underlying values in Yara’s share price, an improvement in earnings per share and an improved capital structure. The company has bought back shares in most years.

The Yara Annual General Meeting on 5 May 2014 approved a new Power of attorney to the Board regarding acquisition of own shares. The Board is thereby given authorization to acquire up to 5 percent (13,811,388 shares) of Yara’s shares before the next Annual General Meeting. Yara has renewed its agreement with the Norwegian State according to which the State’s shares will be redeemed on a pro-rata basis to ensure that the State’s ownership is unchanged in the event repurchased shares are cancelled.

Yara's purchases of own shares are disclosed to the Oslo Stock Exchange on an on-going basis and details published in the table below.
