Oerlikon gibt endgültigen Angebotspreis des Übernahmeangebotes für die Saurer AG bekannt

Pfäffikon SZ, 8. September 2006 - Um Spekulationen folgend der Voranmeldung des öffentlichen Kaufangebotes für alle sich im Publikum befindlichen Aktien der Saurer AG vom 6.9.2006 entgegenzuwirken und sämtlichen bestehenden sowie potenziellen Aktionären der Saurer AG Sicherheit zu geben, hat der Verwaltungsrat der Oerlikon (Unaxis Holding AG) beschlossen, den Angebotspreis für die Aktien der Saurer AG von dem ursprünglich am gesetzlichen Minimum orientierten Mindestpreis in Höhe von CHF 93,42 auf CHF 110,00 pro Aktie zu erhöhen. Alle Bedingungen der Voranmeldung, so insbesondere die zu erreichende Beteiligungsschwelle in Höhe von 50,01%, bleiben unverändert. Damit möchte Oerlikon insbesondere auch den Kleinaktionären endgültige Sicherheit über den zu erwartenden Angebotspreis geben. Die Erhöhung des Preises ist zugleich ein starkes Bekenntnis der Oerlikon zu der Transaktion und Beteiligung an der Saurer AG.
