BKW FMB Energy Ltd. registered shares to be delisted on 20 April 2012

Bern (ots) - With the aim of introducing a holding structure, BKW Inc. submitted a public exchange offer on 3 October 2011 for all BKW FMB Energy Ltd. registered shares in free float. In return for each tendered share in BKW FMB Energy Ltd., shareholders of BKW FMB Energy Ltd. were offered one new share in BKW Inc. with the same par value. Since 12 December 2011 BKW Inc. shares have been listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange and the BX Berne eXchange. BKW FMB Energy Ltd. shares are being delisted from the SIX Swiss Exchange and the BX Berne eXchange on 20 April 2012, with 19 April 2012 being the final day for trading BKW FMB Energy Ltd. shares on the SIX Swiss Exchange.

The public exchange offer was successfully completed on 12 December 2011. As stated in the offer prospectus on 3 October 2011, BKW Inc. submitted a request for registered shares in BKW FMB Energy Ltd. to be delisted from the SIX Swiss Exchange and the BX Berne eXchange. Both exchanges have approved this meas-ure. BKW FMB Energy Ltd. shares will be traded on the SIX Swiss Exchange on 19 April 2012 for the last time, with delisting ensuing on 20 April 2012. The last day for trading on the BX Berne eXchange will be 20 April 2012, the reason being that BX Berne eXchange regulations stipulate that the last day of trading and delisting must both occur on the same day. As the amount of holding of BKW Inc. in BKW FMB Energy Ltd. exceeded 98% of the voting rights in BKW FMB Energy Ltd. on the date on which the extended acceptance period expired, BKW Inc. has asked the commercial court of the Canton of Berne to approve the squeeze-out of untendered BKW FMB Energy Ltd. shares. Notice of this squeeze-out procedure was published three times in the Swiss Official Gazette of Commerce (SOGC). Once the commercial court has announced its decision, the squeezed-out holders of BKW FMB Energy Ltd. shares will receive new BKW Inc. shares in the ratio of 1:1.
