DGAP-News: Hypoport AG / Key word(s): Share Buyback Hypoport AG: Official notice pursuant to Article 4 (2) of Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2273/2003 14.08.2014 / 17:15 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Press release Share repurchase programme Official notice pursuant to Article 4 (2) of Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2273/2003 Berlin, 14 August 2014: The Management Board of Hypoport AG has decided on 11 August 2014 to repurchase up to 60,000 of the Company's own shares exclusively through the stock market. The maximum volume of shares that may be repurchased during the buy-back programme has been set at 1,000 shares per day. The maximum price per share has been set to no more than EUR 13.00 (excluding purchase-related costs). The purpose of this programme is to provide treasury shares for employee share ownership schemes and other means of issuing shares to employees of the Company and the Hypoport Group. The shares will be repurchased under the authorisation granted by the Annual Shareholders' Meeting on 4 June 2010 for the Company to purchase its own shares. The Supervisory Board has approved this share buy-back programme. The repurchase of shares will commence no sooner than 18 August 2014 and will be completed by no later than 31 December 2014. The shares will be repurchased in accordance with the 'safe harbour' regulations specified under section 14 (2) and section 20a (3) of the German Securities Trading Act (WpHG) in conjunction with the provisions of Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2273/2003 of 22 December 2003 (hereinafter referred to as 'EU Regulation'). The share buy-back will be executed on behalf and for the account of Hypoport AG and will be coordinated by an independent bank. The bank must purchase the Hypoport shares in accordance with the aforementioned regulations and must comply with the provisions of the authorisation granted by the Annual Shareholders' Meeting on 4 June 2010. The bank's decisions on the timing of the purchase of shares in Hypoport AG in compliance with the EU Regulation will be made independently of Hypoport AG and will not be influenced by the latter. Hypoport AG will therefore not exert any influence over the bank's decisions. The EU Regulation stipulates that, when determining the shares' purchase price, the bank must not offer more than the price of the most recent transaction independently executed on the stock exchange concerned or - if lower - the price of the currently highest independent offer on the stock exchange concerned. Furthermore, the authorisation granted by the Annual Shareholders' Meeting on 4 June 2010 stipulates that the purchase price offered by the bank must not be more than 10 per cent above or below the shares' average Xetra closing price on the five trading days preceding the purchase concerned. The EU Regulation stipulates that the bank must not on any one day purchase more than 25 per cent of the average daily volume of Hypoport shares traded on the stock exchange on which the shares are purchased. The average volume of Hypoport shares traded corresponds to the average daily volume of shares traded in the month before the buy-back programme is published. The volume of shares that may be traded during the buy-back programme has been set at 1,000 shares per day. The Management Board of Hypoport AG may at any time suspend the share repurchase programme and - provided that the relevant legal requirements are met - resume the programme. As required by the EU Regulation, Hypoport AG will report regularly on the executed transactions on its website at http://www.hypoport.com/investor_relations.html.
