Transactions in relation to share buyback program

Acting under its share buyback authorization, the GN Store Nord Board of Directors initiated a share buyback program on May 1, 2019, in accordance with article 5 of Regulation (EU) no. 596/2014 of April 16, 2014 on market abuse and Delegated Regulation (EU) no. 2016/1052 of March 8, 2016, jointly referred to as the Safe Harbor rules (company announcement no. 23 of May 1, 2019).
