COMPANY ANNOUNCEMENT NO 34/2013 — 11 july 2013



As announced in Company Announcement No 20/2013 of 30 April 2013, Royal Unibrew has, in accordance with European Commission Regulation (EC) No 2273/2003 of 22 December 2003, also known as the Safe Harbour Regulation, initiated a share buy-back programme with a maximum share buy-back up to a market value of DKK 210 million and a planned period of realisation up until 25 April 2014.


Simultaneously with the announcement today of the agreement made with Heineken International B.V. to acquire Oy Hartwall Ab in Finland (see Company Announcement No 33/2013 of 11 July 2013), Royal Unibrew has decided to close the above-mentioned share buy-back programme.
