Transaction in own shares

Ryanair Holdings plc (the "Company") has previously announced an intention to return capital to shareholders by way of a combination of share buybacks and dividends. The Company today announces that on 13 February 2014 it purchased for cancellation a total of 110,000 ordinary shares of nominal value €0.00635 each in the capital of the Company ("Ordinary Shares").
The Ordinary Shares repurchased have been repurchased through Citigroup Global Markets Limited ("Citigroup") at an average price of €7.2449 per Ordinary Share. In respect of this programme, which will operate until 14 March 2014, Citigroup will make its trading decisions in relation to Ryanair's Ordinary Shares repurchased under the buy-back programme independently of, and uninfluenced by, Ryanair. Any such acquisitions will be effected within certain pre-set parameters, and in accordance with both Ryanair's general authority to repurchase shares and Chapter 9 of the Listing Rules of the Irish Stock Exchange.
Following the cancellation of the Ordinary Shares repurchased on 13 February 2014, the Company will have 1,382,717,272 Ordinary Shares in issue. To the extent that further Ordinary Shares are repurchased under the programme, these shares will also be cancelled.
