Ultrasonic AG: Issue of Bonus Shares
Cologne, 17 August 2012 - The annual general meeting of Ultrasonic AG (Prime Standard, ISIN DE000A1KREX3, US5), the German holding company of an established Chinese manufacturer and supplier of high-quality branded urban footwear products, decided on 6 July 2012, to increase the company's share capital out of its own resources by EUR 819,615.00,from EUR 10,654,995.00 to EUR 11,474,610.00 by converting EUR 819,615.00 of the capital reserve. To achieve an evenly divisible ratio, the share capital was reduced to EUR 10,654,995.00 by withdrawing five shares.
The capital increase will be performed by issuing 819,615 new no par-value bearer shares ('bonus shares'), which will be distributed to the company's shareholders. The bonus shares carry full dividend rights as of 1 January 2012. The capital increase out of own resources was entered in the company's Commercial Register at the local court in Cologne on 13 August 2012.
The company's shareholders are entitled to bonus shares in a ratio of 13:1 based on their previous of ISIN DE000A1KREX3 shares after the close of trading on the evening of 20 July 2012, such that one (1) new share is allocated for each thirteen (13) old shares. Since all shares of Ultrasonic AG are held in collective bank depositaries, shareholders do not need to take any action with regard to the allocation. The bonus shares will be allocated to eligible shareholders on 21 August 2012 by a security deposit credit based on their holdings of old shares after the close of trading on 20 August 2012. There is no provision for the refund of fees by the issuer.
The bonus shares will be given the ISIN designation DE000A1PG6H1 (WKN A1P G6H) for 'redeemable no par-value shares' of Ultrasonic AG because the bonus shares are subject to a public tender offer by the company. This was also approved at the annual general meeting on 6 July 2012.
The bonus shares will not be admitted for trading on the regulated market (Prime Standard) at Frankfurt Stock Exchange. However, when the public tender offer ends, the ISIN of the bonus shares will be converted from the interim ISIN DE000A1PG6H1 to the main ISIN DE000A1KREX3 and the shares will be included in the ongoing listing.
Due to the issue of bonus shares, the listing of shares of Ultrasonic AG will be deemed to be 'ex bonus shares' on 21 August 2012.
The detailed announcement of the capital increase out of own resources and the issue of the bonus shares has been published in the electronic Federal Gazette (Bundesanzeiger) and on the company's website in the investor section (in German only). The offer document for the public tender offer will be published by 15 September 2012 at the latest.
