The merger of ELANTAS and Von Roll combines the innovative strength of the two companies with the aim of expanding electromobility and renewable energies. Based on an external valuation report (“Fairness Opinion”) issued by IFBC in Zurich, the Board of Directors of Von Roll has unanimously endorsed the recommendation for shareholders to embrace the offer and tender their shares.  The report of the Board of Directors containing the recommendation and the rationale behind it is included in the offer prospectus.

A detailed indicative timetable is delineated in the Offer Prospectus.

ELANTAS has entered into a share purchase agreement with the von Finck family and tender agreements with Von Roll’s management, according to which ELANTAS will acquire a total stake of 82.57 percent in Von Roll, at the stipulated offer price of 0.86 Swiss francs per share. In the span between the initial pre-announcement of the offer and the close of the stock exchange on September 6, 2023, ELANTAS has additionally acquired 11,2 million shares of Von Roll on the market, accounting for 3,13 percent of the total share capital.

Taking into account the (i) shares encompassed by the share purchase agreement with the von Finck family, (ii) the two tender agreements, (iii) the shares acquired on the market, and (iv) the 1,99% treasury shares owned by Von Roll, ELANTAS holds a total of 313’444’063 Von Roll shares as of September 6, 2023, corresponding to 87,69% of the share capital documented in the commercial register.
