2017 To Date












On February 24, 2016, we announced our intention to repurchase up to EUR600 million in shares over the three-year period 2016-2018, including repurchases to offset share issuance related to incentive programs. On July 28, 2017, we increased this program by an additional EUR100 million in order to mitigate the earnings dilution expected from two divestments agreed and completed in 2017 (Transport Services and certain U.K. publishing assets). Our intention is to complete EUR300 million of share repurchases during 2017.

Current share repurchases are made on behalf of Wolters Kluwer by a third party to whom we have given a mandate to buy up to a maximum of EUR100 million in ordinary shares in the period from July 31, 2017 up to and including October 30, 2017.

On September 26, 2017, we granted a new mandate to another third party to buy shares on our behalf in the period starting November 2, 2017 up to and including February 19, 2018. Under this mandate, we intend to implement share buybacks of up to EUR50 million in the period from November 2, 2017 up until December 31, 2017, and a further up to EUR50 million in the period from January 1, 2018 up to and including February 19, 2018.

Share repurchases are made within the limits of relevant laws and regulations, in particular Regulation (EU) 596/2014) and Wolters Kluwer's Articles of Association. Repurchased shares are added to and held as Treasury shares and will be used for capital reduction purposes or to meet obligations arising from share-based incentive plans.
