Indivior Announces Share Repurchase Program Details


Slough, UK and Richmond, VA, July 30, 2021 - Indivior PLC (LON: INDV) today announced that, as outlined in its half-year results on 29 July 2021, it will commence a share repurchase program of Indivior's ordinary shares of $0.10 each (the "Ordinary Shares") for up to a maximum consideration of $100 million (the "Program").


Indivior PLC ("Indivior") announces that it has entered into an irrevocable, non-discretionary agreement with Morgan Stanley & Co. International Plc ("Morgan Stanley") in relation to the Program and for Morgan Stanley to carry out on-market purchases, acting as riskless principal, during the period commencing on July 30, 2021 and ending no later than December 30, 2022, of the Ordinary Shares for an aggregate purchase price of no greater than $100 million and the simultaneous on-sale of such Ordinary Shares by Morgan Stanley to Indivior.


Morgan Stanley will make trading decisions in relation to the Program independently of Indivior in accordance with certain pre-set parameters set out in the agreement with Morgan Stanley. Any purchases of Ordinary Shares under the Program will be carried out on the London Stock Exchange and/or on Aquis Stock Exchange and CBOE Europe Limited, being Multilateral Trading Facilities, as defined by the Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments (including the delegated and implementing acts adopted under it) as implemented, retained, amended, extended, re-enacted or otherwise given effect in the United Kingdom from 1 January 2021 and as amended or supplemented in the United Kingdom thereafter, and executed in accordance with Chapter 12 of the Financial Conduct Authority's Listing Rules and Indivior's general authority to make market purchases of Ordinary Shares granted by its shareholders at the annual general meeting held on 6 May 2021(the "Authority"). The Ordinary Shares will be purchased in accordance with the price and volume conditions set out in the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052 of 8 March 2016 supplementing Regulation (EU) No 596/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to regulatory technical standards for the conditions applicable to buyback programs and stabilization measures as implemented, retained, amended, extended, re-enacted or otherwise given effect in the United Kingdom from 1 January 2021 and as amended or supplemented in the United Kingdom thereafter. All repurchases by Indivior under the Program will be "On Exchange" transactions (as such term is defined in the rules of the London Stock Exchange) and will be "on market" for the purposes of the Companies Act 2006. Indivior will announce any market repurchase of Ordinary Shares no later than 7.30 a.m. on the business day following the calendar day on which the repurchase occurred.


As the purpose of the Program is to reduce the issued share capital of Indivior, to the extent permitted by law, all Ordinary Shares purchased under the Program will be cancelled.


The maximum number of Ordinary Shares that may be repurchased under the Program is 73,462,098, being the number of Ordinary Shares Indivior is authorized to repurchase under the terms of the Authority.


This announcement does not constitute, or form part of, an offer or any solicitation of an offer for securities in any jurisdiction.
