Annual general meeting of shareholders 2014: Bossard requests exchange of bearer shares for registered shares, as well as a share split with a ratio of 1:2
At the forthcoming annual general meeting of shareholders on April 7, 2014, the board of directors of Bossard Holding AG will propose to shareholders the exchange of listed bearer shares for new, listed, category - A -, registered shares. As a result of this exchange, the owners of these shares will be entered into the share register onwards, thereby also facilitating more direct communication with shareholders.
Due to the gratifying appreciation of the share price, the board of directors will also request from the annual general meeting of shareholders a share split with a ratio of 1:2. This will cut in half the nominal value of the new, listed, category - A -, registered shares from a nominal value of CHF 10 to a new nominal value of CHF 5 and the nominal value of non-listed, category - B -, registered shares (existing registered shares) from a nominal CHF 2 to a new nominal CHF 1.
