END OF THE SHARE BUY-BACK PROGRAMMES AND CAPITAL REDUCTION THROUGH CANCELLATION OF SHARES 
 
ROVI reported that, at its meeting of 22 February, 2022, the Board of Directors decided to end the first share buy-back programme, launched by the Company as of 3 November, 2021, having acquired a total of 1,492,108 ROVI shares, i.e. 89% of the maximum number of shares it had been initially planned to acquire under the buy-back programme.
 
Likewise, on 29 March, 2022, ROVI reported the end of the second buy-back programme, which had commenced on 23 February, 2022. A total of 560,700 treasury shares had been acquired, i.e. 100% of the maximum number it had been initially planned to acquire under the buy-back programme. 
 
The purpose of the two buy-back programmes was to cancel treasury shares held by ROVI (by reducing the capital). The reduction of the capital through cancellation of 2,052,808 shares repurchased within the framework of the aforementioned buy-back programmes was approved at the General Shareholders' Meeting of 14 June, 2022 and executed by entering the pertinent deed of capital reduction into public record. The deed is currently undergoing the registration process at the Madrid Companies Registry and the new amount of the share capital, after the shares mentioned have been cancelled and excluded from trading will appear in the registers of the National Securities Market Commission and Iberclear a few days after registration of the deed of capital reduction. The Company will provide further information in due course.
