STOCKHOLM--()--Regulatory News:

Eniro (STO:ENRO) has had a synthetic share program for the 2010–2012 fiscal years, in accordance with a decision by the Annual General Meeting. Valuation of the synthetic shares is linked to Eniro’s share price, and a cash settlement is being carried out following a lock-in period of three years from the first vesting year.
