Trading venue:   

The acquisitions will be made on the Spanish Electronic Trading Interconnection System – Continuous Market (the “Continuous Market”).

Manager:   

The execution will be carried out externally through CITIGROUP GLOBAL MARKETS EUROPE AG (the “Manager”), who will make its decisions concerning the timing of the purchases of the BBVA shares independently of the Company.

Conditions of the Second Segment:   

The Second Segment will be executed pursuant to the following conditions:

  

(i) by purchasing in each trading session on the Continuous Market (other than a Discontinued Day) 4,250,000 shares (the “Daily Target Number of Shares”), except in cases of force majeure or if the Manager is unable to purchase such number of shares due to limitations derived from the provisions of article 3.2 of the Delegated Regulation.

 

For these purposes, a Discontinued Day is understood to be any trading session of the Continuous Market in which there is a significant disruption in the market or in the quotation of the BBVA shares (including if their trading price falls below their nominal value during a substantial part of the session) or if the trading volume for the BBVA share is less than 2.5 times the Daily Target Number of Shares.

 

(ii) The own shares will be purchased respecting in all cases the conditions and the price and volume limits set forth in the Regulations.

 

In particular, it is hereby stated that the Daily Target Number of Shares is less than 25% of the average daily volume of the BBVA shares in the Spanish Electronic Trading Interconnection System – Continuous Market in the month preceding this communication (thus complying with the provisions of article 3.3.a) of the Delegated Regulation).
