Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc. The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement.
Cuxhaven, 14 June 2005 ? To strengthen the capital base, to compensate losses of the last year and to improve the balance sheet the Supervisory Board and the Management Board of Plambeck Neue Energien AG today consented to the general meeting of shareholders a reduction of the subscribed capital of the Company at a ratio of 3:2. The Management will also propose that the convertible bond be repriced.
The subscribed capital will be reduced by the simplified capital reduction from EUR 30,368,317 to EUR 20,245,744. This will lead to a change in the number of issued shares. The shareholders will now receive two shares where previously they would have received three shares. The total income 10,122,872 EUR resulting from the capital reduction will be used as follows: clearing of depreciations und losses of 8,122,872 Euro and transfer to capital reserves to the amount of 2,000,000 EUR. In accordance with the corporate planning, the lowering of the capital would result in no further losses appearing in the balance sheet as of 2006.
The conversion price of the convertible bond will be reduced within a one-off conversion period. It would increase to EUR 3.75 following the capital reduction. The new one-off price of 2.50 EUR will give bond holders the opportunity to exchange the bond for shares in a 20-day period at this more favourable price. The opportunity to benefit from this special conversion will be opened as soon as possible after the general meeting of shareholders.
The Management Board is expecting this one-off special conversion to result in an improved EBT in 2006 from lower interest payments up to 1.4 Mio. Euro in the event of a full conversion. The dilution arising from the conversion (8.07%) would be compensated by the improved result stemming from the lower interest payments.
Regardless of the option to undertake a one-off special conversion, the term of the bond will remain unchanged up to 2009. The repayment at the end of the term and the annual interest payments are recorded independently of this repricing of the convertible bond in the Company's financial planning.
This year?s annual shareholders meeting is due to be held in Cuxhaven on 26 July 2005.
