In accordance with its previously announced intention, the board of Ferronordic Machines AB (publ) (“Ferronordic” or the “company”) has decided to reduce the company’s share capital by approx. SEK 5,958 by redemption of all remaining 66,728 A-preference shares in the company (“preference shares”). The total redemption price amounts to approx. 81 million.
Following the redemption, Ferronordic will no longer have any preference shares outstanding. Consequently, the preference shares will also be delisted from Nasdaq First North.
According to the articles of association, the redemption price for each preference share is SEK 1,200, plus accrued and unpaid dividends, which are expected to amount to SEK 8.31 per share. The record date for the redemption is 15 May 2018. The redemption price is expected to be paid on 18 May 2018. Redemption of preference shares and payment of the redemption price will be handled by Euroclear Sweden AB.
The redemption does not affect the preference dividend with record date 2 May 2018 which was resolved by the company’s annual general meeting.
The redemption procedure is automatic, which means that the shareholders do not need to take any actions. Holders of preference shares are entitled and obligated to have all of their preference shares redeemed.
Shareholders who wish to sell preference shares should note that the last day of trading of preference shares to not be included in the redemption procedure is 11 May 2018 and that transactions made from and including 14 May 2018 will not be settled before the redemption.
