Mergers - Acquisitions - Takeovers 10.12.2012
Korian Deutschland AG, Mannheim, a company which is in the course of foundation and which is to be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Korian S.A., a company based in Paris, France, has today informed Curanum AG concerning its decision about issuing a voluntary public takeover offer for all outstanding Curanum shares, and has announced this decision publicly in advance. The takeover offer includes a minimum acceptance threshold of 75% on the basis of a price of EUR 2,5 per Curanum share, according to information provided by Korian. This announcement was preceded by confidential discussions with the Management Board of Curanum concerning a potential merging of the German business activities of the Korian Group with Curanum. The Management and Supervisory boards of Curanum AG envisage that such a transaction would basically make sense from a strategic perspective for both its employees and the company since both groups' activities and their respective regional coverage would complement each other beneficially. Korian intends to submit its offer document to the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) within the next four weeks in line with the provisions of the German Securities Takeover Act (WpÜG). Once the offer details have been published, the Management and Supervisory boards will review such details carefully before issuing a reasoned, public opinion on the offer, especially with respect to the price offered.
