Company Information

23.11.2007

The Management Board of Vienna Stock Exchange-listed Christ Water Technology AG ("CHRIST") resolved today to increase the company´s share capital from EUR 17,858,500.00 by up to EUR 1,758,349.00 by issuing up to 1,758,349 new shares for cash contribution. The existing shareholders´ subscription rights were excluded to facilitate that the capital increase may be implemented as quickly and flexibly as possible, thus limiting the risk of an adverse change in market conditions and facilitating a pricing of the capital increase close to the then current share price. The detailed report by the Management Board setting out the reasons for the exclusion of the subscription rights is expected to be published tomorrow in the Vienna Official Gazette (Amtsblatt zur Wiener Zeitung) and will be available for download at http://www.christwater.com.
