During the three-year share buyback period contemplated by the share buyback resolution, the Board will be empowered to determine, within the limits set forth by this share buyback resolution and in accordance with applicable law, the timing and conditions, including amounts involved of share buybacks by establishing share buyback programs. The share buyback programs will depend on a variety of elements, including the Company’s business plans, financial performance and market conditions, and will be subject to applicable securities laws and stock exchange rules. There cannot be any assurance as to how many shares will ultimately be purchased under the share buyback authorization.
