Arbon, le 1er novembre 2016 - À l'occasion de l'assemblée générale extraordinaire du 1er no-vembre 2016, les actionnaires d'AFG Arbonia-Forster-Holding AG ont validé toutes les motions déposées par le Conseil d'administration.

L'assemblée générale extraordinaire d'AFG a validé la motion du Conseil d'administration visant à créer un capital autorisé à hauteur de CHF 87'814'650.00 en vue d'une fusion avec Looser Holding AG. Le Conseil d'administration a donc le pouvoir d'augmenter le capital-actions en émettant au maximum 20'908'250 actions nominatives à libérer entièrement d'une valeur nominale de CHF 4.20 chacune.

L'assemblée générale extraordinaire a en outre approuvé trois autres motions en lien avec l'acquisition de Looser Holding AG: la motion visant à rebaptiser la société «AFG Arbonia-Forster-Holding AG» en «Arbonia AG», l'élection du Dr. Rudolf Huber et de Thomas Lozser au Conseil d'administration d'AFG, ainsi que l'augmentation de la compensation totale maximale du Conseil d'administration pour le mandat 2016/17. Ces trois points entrent en vigueur à la condition et avec effet à partir de l'acquisition de plus de 50% des actions de Looser Holding AG. La finalisation est prévue pour la mi-décembre.

L'approbation de ces motions du Conseil d'administration jette les bases, pour AFG, d'une acquisition réussie du groupe Looser.

Les deux motions sans lien avec la transaction, à savoir celle sur l'abolition de la limite d'âge pour les membres du Conseil d'administration et celle sur l'augmentation de la compensation totale maximale des membres de la Direction pour le mandat 2017, ont elles aussi été validées.
