Trelleborg's Board convenes Special General Meeting
Proposals regarding cancellation of repurchased shares, reduction of
statutory reserve and new program to repurchase own shares
At a special meeting on Friday, the Trelleborg AB Board decided to summon
shareholders to a Special General Meeting on Tuesday, June 27, 2000.
At the Special General Meeting, the Board will propose a SEK 293,353,800
reduction in the Company's share capital through the cancellation of the
shares repurchased by the Company (11,734,152 shares, corresponding to 10
percent of the total number of shares outstanding) and a SEK 775,000,000
reduction in the statutory reserve.
The Board also proposes that the Special General Meeting authorize the
Board to repurchase a further 10 percent of the outstanding shares in the
Company during the period up to the next Annual General Meeting, when the
reduction in share capital has been completed.
It is proposed that the new share-repurchase program follow the same terms
and conditions that were approved at the year 2000 Annual General Meeting
earlier this year.
"When fully utilized, the two share-repurchase programs combined result in
increased earnings of approximately 80 öre per share and year, which is a
good investment based on current share price levels," says Trelleborg
President and CEO Fredrik Arp. Even if the new share-repurchase program is
fully utilized, the Group will have substantial financial resources that
will enable its expansive, acquisition-driven growth to continue.
The Special General Meeting will be held in the Forum conference center,
Trelleborg, at 4 pm on June 27, 2000.
