Information for current shareholders on agenda item 8 (stock split) of the Annual General Meeting:
The Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of ISRA VISION AG will propose a stock split at the Annual General Meeting on March 28, 2018. In the course of this stock split, each shareholder will receive four additional ISRA shares (so-called bonus shares) free of charge for each ISRA share held, following an ordinary capital increase from company funds. The number of shares held will therefore multiply by five. Accordingly, the number of shares among which the company’s market capitalization is distributed will also multiply by five, and the share price will be divided by five accordingly. Personal voting rights and the value of share packages remain unchanged.
An example: For every one ISRA share that an investor owns at a current market price of, for example, EUR 190, he or she will hold five shares at a price of EUR 38 each after the share split. In total, this still adds up to the original EUR 190. The value of holdings remains the same. One advantage is that investors can now trade smaller amounts of their investment in ISRA VISION.
All old and new shares are fully entitled to dividends starting from the current financial year. The company’s equity and market capitalization are not altered by the stock split as the new shares are created from company funds. Following approval by the Annual General Meeting, the stock split is expected to be implemented between April and June 2018.
