The authority given by the resolution may be general or limited to the purchase of shares of a particular class or description. It may be an unconditional authority or subject to conditions.
The authority must specify the maximum number of shares authorised to be acquired and determine both the maximum and minimum prices that may be paid for the shares. This can be done by specifying a particular sum or by providing a basis or formula for calculating the amount of the price (but without reference to any person’s discretion or opinion).
The authority may be varied, revoked or from time to time renewed by a resolution of the company. A resolution conferring, varying or renewing authority must specify a date on which it is to expire, which must not be later than five years after the date on which the resolution is passed.
The wording of the resolution must be consistent with the wording of "Own Share Purchase out of Capital – Board Resolution (ESS – Multiple Buybacks)".
