Share Buyback Transaction Details November 29 –  December 5, 2018

December 6, 2018 – Wolters Kluwer today reports that it has repurchased 238,128 of its own ordinary shares in the period from November 29, 2018, up to and including December 5, 2018, for €12.8 million and at an average share price of €53.84.

These 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. The buyback program also includes repurchases made to offset annual incentive share issuance.

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

Total24,409,1371,013.841.54


As previously stated, we are on track and committed to complete a total of €550 million in share buybacks in the year 2018.  For the period starting November 1, 2018, up to and including December 27, 2018, we have engaged a third party to execute €100 million of buybacks on our behalf, within the limits of relevant laws and regulations (in particular Regulation (EU) 596/2014) and the company’s Articles of Association. Repurchased shares are added to and held as treasury shares and will be used for capital reduction purposes or to meet obligations arising from share-based incentive plans.
