Business news for the stock market
Vienna (pta026/17.02.2016/18:25) - - + Request complies with the provisions of the Austrian Minority Shareholder Squeeze Out Act (GesAusG) + Delisting of ECO Business-Immobilien AG leads to a further
optimisation of the group structure and a reduction in costs and administrative burden within the group
conwert Immobilien Invest SE ("conwert") filed a request today through its subsidiary ECO Anteilsverwaltungs GmbH that the Annual General Meeting of ECO Business-Immobilien AG ("ECO") transfer the
shares of ECO's other shareholders to the subsidiary (squeeze-out). conwert had already acquired another approx. 2.5% of ECO's shares in December 2015. conwert and ECO Anteilsverwaltungs GmbH
together hold approximately 98.2% of the shares of ECO. The aim of the squeeze-out is to transfer the remaining free float shares in ECO to ECO Anteilsverwaltungs GmbH.
The transfer of the shares of minority shareholders in ECO is to take place against cash compensation in accordance with the legal requirements of the GesAusG. An Extraordinary General Meeting that
has yet to be convened will decide on the squeeze-out.
It is expected that the Vienna Stock Exchange will revoke ECO's registration for trading after registration of the shareholder committee. The delisting of ECO will lead to further optimisation of the
group's structure and reduce costs and the administrative burden within the group.
