SolarWorld AG invites all noteholders to meetings
First goal is appointment of noteholders’ joint representative
- May 22, 2013: Noteholders’ meeting for bond ISIN XS0641270045 (2011/2016)
- May 23, 2013: Noteholders’ meeting for bond ISIN XS0478864225 (2010/2017)
As SolarWorld AG announced per ad hoc on April 30, 2013, the company invites holders of both bonds issued by the company to two separate noteholders’ meetings in the context of the financial restructuring process. The objective of both noteholders’ meetings is to appoint a noteholders’ joint representative for each bond, who will pool and represent the noteholders’ interests.
At these meetings, the management board of SolarWorld AG will also report on the status of the restructuring process. These noteholders’ meetings will not pass resolutions on the restructuring of the bonds. For this purpose, further meetings will be required to which SolarWorld AG will invite noteholders soon.
The first noteholders’ meetings have quorum only if the noteholders participating represent a nominal value of at least half of the outstanding notes. In case this quorum is not reached, SolarWorld will convene resprective second noteholders’ meetings. These will have a quorum in any case.
The first noteholders’ meetings will take place at the following dates:
Wednesday, May 22, 2013: bond ISIN XS0641270045 (2011/2016)
Thursday, May 23, 2013: bond ISIN XS0478864225 (2010/2017)
Both meetings begin at 11.00 a.m. Admission is from 9.30 a.m. Both meetings will take place at Wasserwerk / World Conference Center Bonn (WCCB), Hermann-Ehlers-Straße 29, D-53113 Bonn, Germany
