BEWI – Launch of tender offer to acquire remaining shares in IZOBLOK
Reference is made previous stock exchange releases about BEWI ASA’s acquisition of a majority stake of the listed Polish company IZOBLOK Spólka Akcyjna ("IZOBLOK"), a leading European provider of Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) components to the automotive industry. BEWI currently (indirectly) owns 54.66 per cent of the shares, corresponding to 66.00 per cent of the voting rights in IZOBLOK, and is now announcing its tender offer for all outstanding shares in IZOBLOK.
The total number of shares subject to the tender offer is 574 481 shares, corresponding to the remaining 45.34 per cent of the total outstanding shares, and 34.00 per cent of the voting rights.
The price offered per share is PLN 50.41, amounting to a total consideration of approximately EUR 6.4 million.
If BEWI succeeds in acquiring 100 per cent of the outstanding shares, the company intends to delist the shares in IZOBLOK from trading on the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE). A delisting of the shares requires a consent of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority.
If BEWI in the tender offer acquires shares that, together with the shares currently held by BEWI in, represent at least 95 per cent of the total number of votes at the General Meeting of IZOBLOK, BEWI intends to conduct a squeeze-out of the shares from the minority shareholders, pursuant to the applicable laws.
