The 10:1 share consolidation that was resolved at the Annual General Meeting of KTM Industries AG on 26 April 2018, was registered in the companies register. In addition to the redemption of two shares in order to even out the existing share capital of the company, the shares will be consolidated at a ratio of 10: 1. As a result, the number of issued shares decreases from approximately 225 million shares to approximately 22.5 million shares. The last trading day of shares with ISIN AT0000820659 (Swiss valor number: 504289) is 24 May 2018. As of 25 May 2018, the converted shares will be traded on the stock exchange under the new ISIN AT0000KTMI02 (Swiss valor number: 41860974). The conversion of the securities portfolios in the securities accounts of the shareholders is carried out automatically by the custodian bank.
The capital reduction and share consolidation has no effect on the shareholders’ assets. It constitutes a pure accounting measure. On the whole, the equity structure and the value of KTM Industries AG will not be changed as a result. The aim of the measure is to secure and strengthen the dividend paying capability of KTM Industries AG.
For 10 shares with the ISIN AT0000820659 the shareholders will receive 1 share with the new ISIN AT0000KTMI02 (Swiss valor number: 41860974). For shareholders whose number of shares is not divisible by 10 during the conversion, a so-called “Spitzenausgleich” (settlement of fractions) is planned. Share factions are sold very well by the custodian banks on the stock market.
The consolidation of the old shares, the conversion of the securities portfolios and the regulation of the settlement of fractions are free of charge for the shareholders. KTM Industries AG pays the depositary banks the custodian bank commission for this purpose.
