Share Buyback Transaction Details October 4 – 10, 2018

October 11, 2018 – Wolters Kluwer today reports that it has repurchased 230,700 of its own ordinary shares in the period from October 4, 2018 up to and including October 10, 2018 for €11.9 million and at an average share price of €51.42.

These share repurchases are part of the three-year share buyback program (2016-2018) originally announced on February 24, 2016. This program was subsequently expanded to include additional repurchases intended to mitigate dilution caused by non-core divestments made in 2017 and early 2018. This buyback program includes repurchases made to offset annual incentive share issuance.

The cumulative amounts repurchased under this three-year program are now as follows:
