21.09.2023 Alpine Select Ltd: The extraordinary shareholders' meeting approves the distribution of an extraordinary dividend
In view of a major shareholder's intention to sell, the board of directors had proposed to the shareholders' meeting the distribution of an extraordinary dividend in cash in the amount of CHF 3.00 per registered share with a par value of CHF 0.02 each. The shareholders today approved this proposal by 5,869,963 votes (with 3,283 votes against and no abstentions).
The dividend will be paid out to the shareholders after deduction of 35% VAT with value date 27 September 2023. The share will be traded ex-dividend as of 25 September 2023.
In his address to the shareholders present, the president of the board of directors explained that the financing of the extraordinary dividend is ensured by liquid funds and therefore no existing investments will have to be sold. With the distribution of the cash quota to the shareholders, the investment ratio of the portfolio would increase to 100%. Furthermore, the president reiterated that the board of directors is convinced of the intrinsic value and development potential of Company's current undervalued portfolio.
At today's extraordinary shareholders' meeting, 67.44% of all shares were represented.
