Share

Almere, The Netherlands
June 2, 2020, 8 a.m. CET

ASM International N.V. (Euronext Amsterdam: ASM) today announces the start of a share buyback program of ASMI's common shares up to 100 million.

This program follows on ASMI's announcement on February 25, 2020, that the Management Board authorized a share buyback program for up to €100 million. The program commences today, June 2, 2020, and will end as soon as the aggregate purchase price of the common shares acquired by ASMI has reached €100 million, but ultimately on November 17, 2021.

The Board concluded, after a thorough analysis in light of the increased economic uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that the company’s financial position provided sufficient strength to both continue investments in the growth of the business, which is the key priority, and to proceed with the previously announced dividends, which were paid in May 2020, and share buyback program. The Board will remain closely monitoring the company’s financial position.

The share buyback program will take place within the limitations of the authority granted by the shareholders during the Annual General Meeting which was held on May 18, 2020. This share buyback program will be executed by a third party. ASMI has the intention to reduce its capital by withdrawing the shares repurchased as part of this new €100 million share buyback program, save for such number of treasury shares as may be necessary to fund ongoing share and option programs for employees and board members.

ASMI will update the market on the progress of the share buyback program on a weekly base, starting on June 8, 2020. This information will also be published on the ASMI website (www.asm.com).

ORION CORPORATION STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE INSIDE INFORMATION 8 JULY 2020 at 19.00 EEST Orion upgrades full-year outlook for 2020 Orion Corporation upgrades the full-year outlook for 2020, provided on 24 April 2020, for the part regarding operating profit. In 2020, the operating profit is estimated to be slightly higher or higher than in 2019. Visibility towards the end of the year has improved in various areas of operations. For example, the impaired availability of generic products in Orion‘s portfolio manufactured by other pharmaceutical companies is not expected to have as negative impact to the whole year net sales and operating profit as assumed earlier. Operating expenses, in turn, for the whole year are expected to be somewhat lower than estimated.

This requires that Orion continues to succeed in protecting its employees and employee absence rates d
