Ultrasonic AG: Annual General Meeting of Ultrasonic AG agrees to the concept of profit participation
Ultrasonic AG / Key word(s): AGM/EGM/Miscellaneous
Annual General Meeting of Ultrasonic AG agrees to the concept of profit participation
- Implementation of concept for profit participation is intended for the third quarter 2012
- 100% approval to all agenda items
Frankfurt, 6 July 2012 - The annual general meeting (AGM) of Ultrasonic AG (ISIN DE000A1KREX3, US5), the German holding of an established Chinese manufacturer and provider of high quality branded urban footwear products, which is listed in the Prime Standard of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, today has adopted all resolutions with 100 percent approval.
Items on the agenda next to the resolutions regarding the implementation of the profit participation, which essentially will place shareholders economically in the same situation as if they received a dividend payment, were the resolutions regarding the discharge of the Management Board and the Supervisory Board, the new appointment of the Supervisory Board and the remuneration of the Supervisory Board as well as the election of the auditor of the financial statements and consolidated financial statements. Thereby, the acting Supervisory Board was confirmed in office and the acting auditor of the financial statements and consolidated financial statements was also appointed for the financial year 2012.
To implement the concept of the profit participation for the shareholders, the AGM resolved, among others, a capital increase out of company funds, with each shareholder receiving one new no-par share (bonus share) for every 13 existing shares. Until 15 September 2012, the company will make a public tender offer to all shareholders to buy back the bonus shares. The purchase offer will be restricted to the bonus shares. Restricting the share buy-back to the bonus shares is designed to ensure that from the shareholders' viewpoint the economic position is as close as possible to a dividend payment. The purchase price for the bonus shares under the tender offer may not be more than 5% above or below the volume-weighted average trading price of Ultrasonic shares in Xetra trading on the last five trading days before the date on which the offer is published. The maximum price is EUR 9.00 per bonus share.
Shareholders will be free to decide whether or not to take up this tender offer. Shareholders who do not accept the offer simply keep the bonus share(s). Immediately after the completion of the public tender offer the bonus shares will be included in the Prime Standard listing.
For example, shareholders, who intend to accept the proposed tender offer, would realize a calculated profit participation of about EUR 0.69 per share, based on a potential buy-back price of EUR 9.00 (EUR 9.00 gross sale proceeds for each 13 shares held originally).
With regard to the volume of the proposed public tender offer to the shareholders, it should be noted that the major shareholder has given the company a binding legal undertaking not to sell any shares into the offer.
The detailed voting results of the AGM 2012 are available on the company's website under www.ultrasonic-ag.de in the section Investor Relations/Annual General Meeting.
