Sanitec applies for delisting
The Board of Directors of Sanitec Corporation (“Sanitec” or the “Company”) has today decided to apply for delisting of the Sanitec shares from Nasdaq Stockholm. The last day of trading in the shares will be notified when Sanitec has been informed thereof by Nasdaq Stockholm.
On 3 February 2015 Geberit AG (”Geberit”) announced that the public offer to the shareholders of Sanitec has been accepted to such extent that Geberit holds 99.27 per cent of the shares and votes in Sanitec (excluding the 190,000 treasury shares held by Sanitec on 3 February 2015). Geberit also announced that they intend to request compulsory acquisition of the remaining minority shares in the Company.
Based on the above, the Board of Directors of Sanitec considers that it is no longer justified for the Company to remain listed and has therefore decided to apply for delisting of Sanitec’s shares from Nasdaq Stockholm. The last day of trading in the shares on Nasdaq Stockholm will be announced as soon as the Company has been informed thereof by Nasdaq Stockholm.
