Stockholm, Sweden, June 30, 2011: The number of shares outstanding in Atlas Copco AB was during June decreased to 1 229 613 104 from 2 459 226 208. The change is a result of the share redemption procedure resolved by the Annual General Meeting on April 20, which has now been completed.

The share redemption procedure commenced with a 2:1 share split, which was carried out in May. After the split there were 1 678 788 192 series A shares (carrying 1 vote per share) in the company and 780 438 016 series B shares (0.1 vote/share).
