On September 4, 2012, Elekta’s Annual General Meeting resolved on a split of the Company’s shares, whereby each existing share with a quotient value of SEK 2.00 will be divided into four new shares with a quotient value of SEK 0.50, without changing the Company’s share capital. The total number of shares prior to the split is 95,701,670, represented by 3,562,500 series A shares and 92,139,170 series B shares. Following the split, there will be 382,806,680 shares, represented by 14,250,000 series A shares and 368,556,680 series B shares. The record day for the split was set as September 14, 2012, assuming that the Swedish Companies Registration Office has registered the split by that date.
Due to Elekta’s share split, the conversion price for Elekta’s convertible bond has been recalculated. The new conversion price is SEK 97.50 (SEK 390 before recalculation). The recalculated conversion price will be applied after the record day, September 14, 2012, for conversions implemented following the resolution on the share split.
