DGAP-News: Uniper SE / Key word(s): IPO
The German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) has approved the prospectus for the listing of Uniper SE. Trading of the company's shares is expected to commence on September 12, 2016. The registration of the spin-off of the Uniper Group from E.ON in the commercial register of E.ON SE is currently anticipated for September 9. 53.35% of the Uniper shares will be distributed to shareholders of E.ON SE. For every ten shares of E.ON SE owned, shareholders will receive one new registered no-par-value share of Uniper SE with the International Securities Identification Number (ISIN) DE000UNSE018 and the German national securities identification number (WKN) UNSE01. The custodian bank of each E.ON SE shareholder will credit the allocated Uniper SE shares to the respective securities account of each E.ON SE shareholder. Those shareholders of E.ON SE with a number of shares of E.ON SE that cannot be divided evenly by ten will be credited fractional rights to shares of Uniper SE.
Similar to the pricing of an IPO, the first price of the Uniper SE shares will be determined by way of an opening auction on the morning of the listing day. Neither Uniper SE nor E.ON SE are going to provide any guidance on the first price. It is expected that the first price will be established shortly after commencement of trading. The shares of Uniper SE will be listed in the Prime-Standard segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange's regulated official market.
At their Annual Shareholders Meeting held on June 8, 2016 in Essen, 99.7% of the shareholders of E.ON SE approved the spin-off of a 53.35% majority interest in Uniper. After allocation of the shares of Uniper SE, once trading commences, shareholders are free to decide whether they wish to retain their new shares, add more shares or adjust their portfolio.
