Neubiberg/Munich, March 8, 2017 - The Management Board of CHORUS Clean Energy AG (ISIN: DE000A12UL56 / WKN A12UL5) has received the formal request of the major shareholder Capital Stage AG (ISIN DE0006095003 / WKN 609500) in Hamburg that the shareholders' meeting of CHORUS Clean Energy AG shall decide on the transfer of the shares of the remaining minority shareholders to Capital Stage AG in exchange for an adequate cash compensation (squeezeout request).
