As already published on December 15, 2021 the Management Board of PALFINGER AG has – on the basis of the authorization granted by the 33rd Annual General Meeting on April 7, 2021 in accordance with section 65 (1) (8) of the Austrian Stock Corporation Act (Aktiengesetz) and published on April 7, 2021 via an electronic information dissemination system – for purposes of a reversal of the cross-shareholding between PALFINGER and SANY HEAVY INDUSTRIES decided to acquire a total of 2,826,516 of PALFINGER AG’s own shares over-the-counter from SANY EUROPE GMBH. The transaction was expected to be closed by December 31, 2023. This corresponds to 7.52% of the share capital. The Supervisory Board of PALFINGER AG has resolved to consent to the reversal of the cross-shareholding and this acquisition of own shares at its board meeting on December 13, 2021.
