EANS-Adhoc: BWT Aktiengesellschaft / Aquivest GmbH announces results of
mandatory offer to shareholders of BWT Aktiengesellschaft
ad-hoc disclosure transmitted by euro adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.
BWT Aktiengesellschaft today received the following notification:
On 19 October 2012, Aquivest GmbH published a mandatory offer in accordance with
section 22 of the Übernahmegesetz (ÜbG - Austrian Takeover Act) to the
shareholders of BWT Aktiengesellschaft ("BWT") for the acquisition of their
shares in BWT (ISIN AT0000737705) (the "offer"). The acceptance period for the
offer was from 19 October 2012 to 6 November 2012, 5:00 pm, Vienna local time.
By the end of the acceptance period, the offer had been accepted for a total of
5,551,379 shares in BWT at the acceptance and payment office of
Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich Aktiengesellschaft. This corresponds to
31.13% of the total share capital of BWT.
The closing of the offer, namely the gradual payment of the offer price of EUR
16 per share against transfer of the shares, is expected to take place on 12
November 2012 through the acceptance and payment office. Taking into account the
shares in BWT held by the preceding legal entities together with Aquivest GmbH
or that are attributable to them in accordance with ÜbG, but without taking into
account the 1,072,898 treasury shares held by BWT, Aquivest GmbH will hold
10,580,889 shares in BWT or around 59.33% of its share capital on closing of the
offer. Excluding the 1,072,898 treasury shares held by BWT, the amount of the
share capital of BWT attributable to Aquivest GmbH under takeover law will
therefore be around 63.13%.
For all bearers of BWT shares that did not accept the offer within the
acceptance period, the acceptance period of the mandatory offer will be extended
by three months in accordance with section 19(3) ÜbG. This extended period
therefore ends on 8 February 2013, hence the offer can still be accepted until 8
February 2013 inclusively.
