CDON declared the Offer to be unconditional on 23 January 2008 and extended the acceptance period until 1 February 2008.
58,027 additional Gymgrossisten shares were tendered under the terms of the Offer during the extended acceptance period. A total of 5,875,562 shares, equivalent to 99.42 per cent of the total number of issued and outstanding Gymgrossisten shares and voting rights have now been tendered under the terms of the Offer. Settlement of shares tendered during the extended acceptance period will begin on or around 8 February 2008.
The Offer will not be extended further.
As previously announced, CDON will initiate a mandatory tender for the remaining issued and outstanding Gymgrossisten shares, which have not been tendered under the terms of the Offer. CDON will also apply for the Gymgrossisten share to cease trading on the First North marketplace. An announcement regarding the final trading date of the Gymgrossisten share will be made in due course.
