Raport bieżący nr 11/2016
Podstawa Prawna: Art. 17 ust. 1 MAR - informacje poufne.
The Board of Directors of Kofola ČeskoSlovensko a.s. ("Kofola") hereby announce that, following request of its major shareholder, KSM Investment S.A., the Board of Directors approved on 8 December 2016:
- delisting of Kofola's shares from trading on the Warsaw Stock Exchange ("WSE"); and
- acquisition of such delisted shares by Kofola.
Delisting of Kofola's shares from trading on the WSE (in Polish: Giełda Papierów Wartościowych) reflects very low volume of shares traded on the WSE which does not justify expenses related to such listing.
According to Polish law, the withdrawal of Kofola's shares from trading on the WSE which are simultaneously traded on the Prague Stock Exchange requires, among other things, launching a tender offer for all remaining shares which (i) were acquired through transactions executed as part of trading on the WSE and (ii) are registered on securities accounts maintained with the Polish National Depository of Securities (in Polish: Krajowy Depozyt Papierów Wartościowych), as at the end of the third day from the announcement of such a tender offer ("Tender Offer").
In this respect, the Board of Directors of Kofola hereby announce that today, on 9 December 2016, the Tender Offer was notified to the WSE and to the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (in Polish: Komisja Nadzoru Finansowego) and that the Tender Offer document was delivered to the Polish Press Agency (PAP).
During the Tender Offer, it is intended that delisting of Kofola's shares from trading on the WSE will be connected with the acquisition of such delisted shares by Kofola, whereby Kofola will become the holder of the treasury shares. In line with applicable laws, the purchase price for these shares has been set to PLN 78.60 (seventy eight zloty and sixty groszy) per one share.
The last trading date of Kofola's shares on the WSE is expected to take place in mid-March 2017.
