Trading in treasury shares is precluded as the purpose of the acquisition. The authorization may be exercised in full or in part or in several installments and in the pursuit of one or more purposes by the company, by a subsidiary (Section 228 (3) of the Austrian Commercial Code (UGB)), or by third parties acting for the account of the company.
