IMPORTANT INFORMATION

This is a translation of the original Swedish language press release. In the event of discrepancies, the original Swedish wording shall prevail.


[1] On 1 April 2018, Starwood announced a public cash offer with a consideration for the A and B shares amounting to SEK 34.40 in cash per Class A and Class B share adjusted for any dividends paid or other value transfers executed to shareholders of Class A and B shares for which the record date for such shares occurs before settlement in the Offer. The 2018 annual general meeting resolved on a dividend distribution of SEK 0.40 per ordinary share of Class A and Class B with record date 26 April 2018. The cash consideration for the Class A and Class B shares has due to the aforementioned dividend payment been adjusted downwards from SEK 34.40 to SEK 34.00.             

[2] If Victoria Park pays dividends or makes any other distributions to shareholders, for which the record date occurs prior to the settlement of the Vonovia Offer, the price will be reduced accordingly.
