The general partner of CompuGroup Medical SE & Co.

The Share Buy-back Program will be carried out by a credit institution. The credit institution will acquire the shares on the stock market and will decide on the timing of acquisition independently of the Company in accordance with the safe harbor provisions of Article 5 of Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 (Market Abuse Regulation) in conjunction with the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052 of 8 March 2016. In addition, the purchase price per share (excluding transaction costs) paid must not exceed, or fall short of, the volume-weighted average price of the Company's share in XETRA trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange during the last five trading days before the acquisition date by more than 10%.
Shares will be bought back in the period from February 26, 2021 to and including April 30, 2021. The Company's treasury shares acquired by means of the Share Buy-back Program are to be used for the purposes permitted under the authorization granted by the annual general meeting of May 15, 2019.
Further details will be published separately by the Company prior to the start of the share buy-back.
