29 May 2017Rickmers Holding AG encourages noteholders once again to register for the noteholders' meeting on 1 June 2017 by the end of today (29 May 2017, 24:00 hours CEST) at the latest Rickmers Holding AG encourages noteholders for the last time to either personally participate in the second noteholders' meeting to be held on Thursday, 1 June 2017, or to be represented in this meeting by the voting rights representatives appointed by Rickmers Holding AG (who are bound by instructions) or a third party. It will only be possible to pass a resolution on the proposed authorisation of the common representative to implement the envisaged restructuring of the Rickmers bond in the noteholders' meeting if those present represent at least 25% of the outstanding notes.
The participation in the noteholders' meeting and the exercise of the voting rights, respectively, mandatorily require a registration by the end of today. The registration must be received by Link Market Services GmbH, the service provider mandated by Rickmers Holding AG,
by no later than today, 29 May 2017, 24:00 hours (CEST),
either by mail to Landshuter Allee 10, 80637 Munich, Germany, or by fax to +49 (0) 89 21027289 or by email to email@example.com.
Noteholders who have not registered in time will not be eligible to participate or vote. In these cases, proxies will not be entitled to participate or exercise voting rights either.
A sample form that may (but not must) be used for the registration can be downloaded by noteholders from the website of Rickmers Holding AG in the "Investor Relations" area (www.rickmers.com/investors) under the section "Rickmers bond". As an alternative to using the form, a timely registration is also possible by way of sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the name and address of the noteholder.
Unlike the registration which is required by today, 29 May 2017, 24:00 hours (CEST), the other documents that are necessary for the participation in the noteholders' meeting and the exercise of the voting rights, respectively, in particular, the special confirmation with blocking note and any power of attorney to the voting rights representatives or a third party (if applicable), can be presented at the latest upon admission to the noteholders' meeting.
Any and all information regarding the second noteholders' meeting is available on the website of Rickmers Holding AG in the "Investor Relations" area (www.rickmers.com/investors) under "Rickmers bond". There, noteholders find, among others, the invitation to the noteholders' meeting, forms for the special confirmation with blocking note and for granting a power of attorney as well as the Q&A catalogue containing questions and answers concerning the planned bond restructuring.
Finally, Rickmers Holding AG emphasizes once more that, as explained in the Q&A catalogue, in case the second noteholders' meeting has no quorum or in case the proposed restructuring concept is rejected, an immediate filing for insolvency proceedings would be imminent.
