Share buyback

In periods of strong earnings, Hydro will consider buy-back of shares in addition to ordinary dividend payments. Such considerations will be made in the light of alternative investment opportunities available to the company and its financial situation.

Any transactions in own shares will be continuously disclosed at Oslo Stock Exchange, and on this web page.
