said NOK2 billion is equivalent to around 1.6% of the market value of its share capital at the current share price.

The buyback program will commence Sept. 26 and is set to be finalized within March 29, 2023, with the authorization being valid until Sept. 20, 2023.

The Norwegian state is Norsk Hydro’s largest shareholder, with a 34.3% stake, and the company said it has entered an agreement that will ensure the state’s ownership is unchanged after the buyback and subsequent share cancellations.
