Rights offering for new shares to launch on August 14
Zurich, August 4, 2014 - Conzzeta AG announces final details of the timing of the rights offering for the new Conzzeta shares. Trading in subscription rights to the 'category A' registered shares is set for August 14 to 28 on the SIX Swiss Exchange.
As announced in the media release of March 26 and approved by the Extraordinary General Meeting on June 13, Tegula AG - which holds 82% of the voting rights and 74% of the Conzzeta share capital - is to merge with Conzzeta AG itself. The merger agreement stipulates that Tegula shareholders will be compensated for their cash contribution in the form of newly issued shares. A total of 14 712 newly issued registered shares A will be offered to public shareholders in proportion to their present shareholdings as part of a public procedure and on identical terms to those offered to the Tegula shareholders. The 641 'category B' registered shares allocated to public shareholders will be offered to these public shareholders as part of a separate, non-public procedure, since the registered shares B are not listed on SIX.
The procedure is divided into the following stages: Allocation of the subscription rights will take place on August 13 after close of trading. As already announced in March, eight subscription rights held in the respective categories entitle the holder to one new registered share. Registered shares A are available with subscription rights at a price of CHF 2 160; registered shares B at CHF 432.
Trading in subscription rights of the 'category A' registered shares on the SIX Swiss Exchange will run from August 14 to 28. There is no organized trading for rights to subscribe to the new 'category B' registered shares. The subscription period will last from August 14 to 29, 12 noon CET. August 14 is designated as the first trading day for the new 'category A' registered shares. Delivery of the new shares on payment of the subscription price will take place on September 3.
As part of the capital increase in connection with the merger, a total of 50 750 new 'category A' registered shares and 33 750 new 'category B' registered shares will be issued. Following the capital increase, the share capital of Conzzeta AG will be CHF 5 175 000, divided into 456 750 fully paid-up registered shares A with a par value of CHF 10 each and 303 750 fully paid-up registered shares B with a par value of CHF 2 each.
