Capital Stage AG: Annual General Meeting of CHORUS Clean Energy AG agrees to squeeze-out request

Capital Stage AG: Annual General Meeting of CHORUS Clean Energy AG agrees to squeeze-out request  Hamburg, 23 June 2017 - The SDAX-listed, Hamburg-based solar and wind park operator Capital Stage has been given the green light to acquire the remaining shares attributable to minority shareholders in CHORUS Clean Energy AG ('CHORUS') based in Neubiberg near Munich. These shares account for around five per cent of issued share capital in CHORUS. At the Annual General Meeting of CHORUS on 22 June 2017, the shareholders approved the squeeze-out request submitted by Capital Stage AG with more than 99 per cent of the share capital represented. In exchange for transferring their shares to Capital Stage AG, the minority shareholders will receive an appropriate cash settlement of EUR 11.92 per dividend-entitled share. Furthermore, the two members of the Capital Stage AG Management Board, Dr Christoph Husmann and Holger Götze, were confirmed as members of the CHORUS Supervisory Board at the CHORUS Annual General Meeting.   As a result, Capital Stage will have successfully concluded its takeover of CHORUS, which it announced in May 2016, within just a year. Once the shares have been transferred in exchange for payment of the cash settlement, Capital Stage AG will be the sole shareholder of CHORUS Clean Energy AG, and CHORUS will cease to be listed on the stock exchange.
