PR Newswire/euro adhoc/ 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.
