Share buyback October 2010
RWE AG acquired 558,003 ordinary shares of RWE AG (ISIN DE0007037129) with a value of €27.9 million in the time period from October 1, 2010 to November 3, 2010. The shares bought back were used for the issuance of employee shares in connection with the Company’s share option programme for its employees (Belegschaftsaktienausgabe) for the year 2010.
The shares were repurchased on stock exchanges at the most favourable terms for RWE AG. The mandated bank was not allowed to determine a purchase price which exceeded the price of the last independent trade at the respective stock exchange or the highest current independent bid. The higher of both values was decisive. The bank was not allowed to acquire more than 25 % of the average daily volume of shares in one day on the stock exchange on which the purchase was carried out. The average volume of shares is based on the average daily volume of shares traded in the twenty trading days preceding the date of purchase.
The share buyback was finalised on November 3, 2010.
