ASM announces start of €150 million share buyback program

Almere, The Netherlands May 14, 2024, 6:00 p.m. CET

ASM International N.V. (Euronext Amsterdam: ASM) today announces that it will commence a share buyback program of ASM’s common shares of €150 million.

This program follows on ASM's announcement on February 27, 2024, that the Management Board authorized a share buyback program for up to €150 million. The program commences on May 15, 2024, and is to end as soon as the aggregate purchase price of the common shares acquired by ASM has reached €150 million, but ultimately on October 15, 2024.

This share buyback program will take place within the limitations of the authority granted by the shareholders during the Annual General Meeting, which was held on May 13, 2024, and will be executed by a third party. ASM has the intention to reduce its capital by withdrawing the shares repurchased as part of this new €150 million share buyback program, save for such number of treasury shares as may be necessary to fund ongoing share and option programs for employees and board members.

ASM will update the market on the progress of the share buyback program on a weekly basis, starting on May 21, 2024. This information will also be published on ASM’s website (www.asm.com).
