In 2012, Deutsche Börse AG ('Deutsche Börse') undertook a share buyback program pursuant to the authorization by its shareholders. The share buyback program lasted until December 28, 2012. The overall purchase volume amounted to approximately EUR 100.0 million.
The share buyback was implemented by direct purchases of registered no-par-value shares (auf den Namen lautende Stückaktien) of Deutsche Börse (ISIN DE0005810055) via the stock exchange.
The shares may be used for one or several of the purposes permitted by the authorization granted by the shareholders' meeting. The shares may also be used for purposes for which an exclusion of subscription rights is intended, but can also be cancelled or sold through the stock market or by way of an offer to all shareholders.
