Bornheim, August 13, 2012. The Board of Management of Hornbach-Baumarkt-AG, based in Bornheim/Pfalz, ISIN DE0006084403, today resolved to acquire up to 50,000 own shares pursuant to Section 71 (1) No. 2 of the German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). The shares are to be acquired already in preparation for the annual issue of shares to employees scheduled to take place at the end of 2012.
