New York and Frankfurt (January 11, 2017) - Standard Industries Inc., a leading global provider of roofing and waterproofing solutions, today confirmed initial results for the voluntary public takeover offer for Braas Monier Building Group S.A. The initial acceptance period expired on January 6, 2017.
A total of 30,019,931 shares, corresponding to approximately 69.7 percent of total share capital and voting rights in Braas Monier, were tendered during the initial acceptance period. Standard Industries has now secured 31,581,838 shares, corresponding to approximately 73.3 percent of the total share capital and voting rights in Braas Monier. The offer is unanimously supported by Braas Monier's board of directors.
According to the German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act (WpÜG), shareholders of Braas Monier who have not tendered their shares can still accept the offer by tendering their shares during the additional acceptance period, which is expected to commence on January 12, 2017 and expire on January 25, 2017, 24:00 hours (midnight) CET. Standard Industries will disclose the final number of shares tendered without undue delay following the expiration of the additional acceptance period.
All non-regulatory conditions for the takeover offer were satisfied at the end of the initial acceptance period. The company expects the offer to close in the first quarter of the year, pending antitrust approval as set forth in the offer document.
On January 10, 2017, Deutsche Börse announced that it will include the tendered Braas Monier shares (ISIN LU1498426326) in its SDAX index, while excluding the non-tendered Braas Monier Shares (ISIN LU1075065190) therefrom. The change is expected to be effected on January 12, 2017.
