DGAP-News: WiseTech Global / Key word(s): Mergers & Acquisitions
NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION TO ANY U.S. PERSON (AS DEFINED IN REGULATION S UNDER THE U.S. SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED) OR IN OR INTO OR TO ANY PERSON LOCATED OR RESIDENT IN OR AT ANY ADDRESS IN THE UNITED STATES OR IN OR TO ANY PERSON LOCATED OR RESIDENT IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE IT IS UNLAWFUL TO DISTRIBUTE THIS PRESS RELEASE AND THE OFFER DOCUMENT (AS MENTIONED BELOW)
CargoWise GmbH announces a voluntary public acquisition offer to the shareholders of Softship AG
Frankfurt, 17 August 2017. CargoWise GmbH, Bremen, Germany (the "Bidder"), announces today its decision to make an offer ("Offer")
The Offer will be published on or before 31 August 2017 against the following background:
Softship has decided and agreed with the Bidder in an agreement entered into today to terminate the inclusion of the Softship shares in the Basic Board of the Open Market (Freiverkehr) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange ("Delisting") provided that the Bidder made an offer for the Softship shares at a price of EUR 10.00 per Softship share. The Bidder committed under this agreement to make and publish such offer by no later than 31 August 2017. Softship published today its decision to file for the Delisting promptly after the publication of such an offer.
With the Offer, the Bidder wants to increase its shareholding in Softship and give Softship shareholders the possibility to exit their investment before the Delisting becomes fully effective. In addition, the Bidder wants to fulfill its commitment under the aforementioned agreement with Softship.
As of the date of this press release, the Bidder holds 1,444,779 Softship shares, representing approximately 76.97% of the outstanding voting rights and share capital in Softship. The Offer will be made upon the terms of the offer document, which is intended to be published on or before 31 August 2017 on the following website: http://www.softshipoffer.wisetechglobal.com. Softship shareholders will be informed of the opening of the Offer by separate press release.
The Offer will be addressed to Softship shareholders who have their seat, domicile or main residence in the Federal Republic of Germany. All other shareholders will be excluded from the Offer, unless the Bidder expressly allows their participation in the Offer.
The Softship shares are not traded on the regulated market (Regulierter Markt) but on the open market (Freiverkehr). The Offer and its implementation are therefore not subject to the German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act (Wertpapiererwerbs- und Übernahmegesetz) or sec. 39 German Stock Exchange Act (Börsengesetz). The Bidder expressly points out that the Offer will not be subject to the supervision of the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht, "BaFin") and will neither be reviewed nor approved by BaFin. Neither under German nor under the laws of any other jurisdiction, notifications, registrations or approval of the Offer have been or will be requested or granted from any securities regulation authorities or other public authorities.
Important notice: This press release shall neither constitute an offer to purchase or sell nor an invitation to make an offer to purchase or sell Softship shares. The final terms and conditions of the Offer will be published in the offer document, which is intended to be published on or before 31 August 2017. Investors and shareholders of Softship are strongly recommended to read the offer document and the other relevant documents in connection with the Offer, which include important information, once such documents have been published.
