DISTRIBUTION IN KIND OF ALL SHARES IN CDON GROUP AB (Item 7)
The Board of Directors of Modern Times Group MTG AB (publ) (“MTG”) proposes that the Extraordinary General Meeting resolves on a distribution in kind of all shares in the wholly-owned subsidiary CDON Group AB (“CDON Group”) on the following conditions. The Board of Directors proposes that shareholders for each share of class A and B respectively receives one share in CDON Group. MTG´s shares of class C are not entitled to dividend. The dividend will be equivalent to at the most SEK 4.89064 per share of class A and class B respectively and through the dividend the non-restricted equity in MTG will decrease with at the most SEK 323,637,004, based on the potential number of outstanding shares at the record day.
The Extraordinary General Meeting in CDON Group resolved on 24 September 2010 to carry out a set-off issue by which MTG is offered to subscribe for in total 65,545,122 shares in CDON Group at the price of SEK 3.646 per share against payment through set-off of MTG’s receivable on CDON Group amounting to SEK 239,000,000 (the “Share issue”). Through the Share issue the share capital of CDON Group increases to SEK 132,090,244 allocated on 66,045,122 shares. MTG will subscribe for the maximum amount of shares in the Share issue.
The dividend according to this proposal is conditioned on the registration of the Share issue with the Swedish Companies Registration Office, the approval for listing of the company by Nasdaq OMX Stockholm and that the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority has reviewed and approved the prospectus not later than 28 February 2011. The intention is that the shares in CDON Group shall be subject to trade on Nasdaq OMX Stockholm after that the dividend has been carried out.
The Board of Directors is authorised to determine the record day for the dividend.
