Alpine Select currently holds directly and indirectly 58.5% of Altin’s shares. Alpine Select has requested Altin’s Board of Directors to call an extraordinary shareholders‘ meeting. According to the motion submitted, shareholders are asked to decide at the meeting on a cash distribution in the total amount of CHF 24.00 per registered Altin share. The total distribution of CHF 24 per registered Altin share is – according to the relevant shareholder request – to be executed by means of a capital reduction by repayment of par value in the amount of CHF 16.97 per share and by means of a distribution of a special dividend out of “reserves from capital contributions” in the amount of CHF 7.03 per share.
With this proposed cash distribution to the shareholders of Altin Ltd., Alpine Select aims to realize a first step towards a possible future integration or merger of the business activities of both companies respectively.
