Share buyback mechanism
The program is executed via a second trading line at the SIX Swiss Exchange and its implementation is subject to applicable regulatory requirements.
A shareholder wanting to sell Lonza shares may do so either via the ordinary trading line or on the second trading line. Lonza shares sold via the second trading line are subject to the Swiss federal withholding tax of 35% on the difference between the repurchase price of the Lonza share and its nominal value of CHF 1.00. This withholding tax can be reclaimed as appropriate.
