MOL noted a week earlier that the strike price for the option is EUR 42.2198. At current exchange rates, the price comes to about HUF 13,032. MOL shares closed at HUF 20,970 on Tuesday.
MOL also announced the conditions for a new share option agreement with UniCredit reached a week earlier. Under the agreement, MOL will acquire American call options and UniCredit will acquire European put options for 3,659,080 shares maturing on November 14, 2017.
The strike price for both options is EUR 68.32318, or about HUF 21,090.
As a result of the transactions, MOL will directly and indirectly own 9,635,575 "A" series and 578 "C" series treasury shares.
