Disclosure pursuant to article 15 of the Act of 2nd May 2007 relative to the disclosure of significant shareholdings (Transparency Act)
Following the completion of this capital increase and the issue of 203,838 new shares for a total issue price of
€ 8,726,304.78 (specifically € 4,154,232.73 capital and € 4,572,072.05 issue premium), Montea’s total issued capital at 7th June 2018 was € 244,917,003.39. From that date, the capital will be represented by 12,017,476 fully paid-up ordinary shares. There are no preferential shares or shares without a voting right, nor are there any convertible bonds or warrants that give entitlement to shares. Each of these shares grants the right to cast one vote at the General Meeting and hence these shares represent the denominator for disclosure purposes in the context of transparency regulations (i.e. notification in the event of (among other things) reaching, exceeding or failing to reach the statutory or legal threshold).
In addition to the legal thresholds stated in Montea’s articles of association, under article 18, §1 of the Transparency Act, there is an additional statutory threshold of 3%.
