Share Buyback Transaction Details January 3 – 5, 2022

January 6, 2022 - Wolters Kluwer today reports that it has repurchased 40,482 of its own ordinary shares in the period from January 3, 2022, up to and including January 5, 2022, for €4.2 million and at an average share price of €102.65.

These repurchases are part of the share buyback program announced on November 3, 2021, under which we intend to repurchase shares for €50 million during the period starting January 3, 2022, up to and including February 21, 2022.

The cumulative amounts repurchased to date under this program are as follows:

For the above-mentioned period, we have engaged a third party to execute €50 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.
