Munich, November 24, 2022 // - The Management Board of Westwing Group SE has decided today, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, to buy-back up to a maximum of 600,000 shares of the Company (this equals up to approximately 2.87% of today’s share capital) at a total maximum aggregate purchase price without ancillary costs of up to EUR 3.0 million in the period from November 28, 2022 to March 31, 2023.

If the treasury shares are purchased on the stock exchange, the purchase price per share (excluding incidental costs) may not be more than 10% higher or lower than the price of a share of the Company determined by the opening auction in Xetra trading on that trading day (in Frankfurt am Main).
