• Distribution of Bure's total shareholding in AcadeMedia AB (publ)
• Redemption of treasury shares
The Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of Bure Equity AB (publ) held on 6 November, 2008, dealt with the following items:
Amendment to the Articles of Association (§ 4 - Share capital)
The EGM adopted new Articles of Association, whereby § 4 now will read: “The share capital of the Company shall amount to not less than SEK 100,000,000 and not more than SEK 400,000,000.
Distribution of Bure's total shareholding in AcadeMedia AB (publ)
The EGM resolved to approve the distribution of all shares held by Bure in AcadeMedia to the shareholders in Bure (following completion of a non-cash issue, whereby Bure have contributed all of the shares in Anew Learning AB in return for newly issued shares in AcadeMedia, among other things). Every ten (10) shares in Bure shall grant entitlement to one (1) class B share in AcadeMedia. Based on the market value of the AcadeMedia share on 6 November, 2008, the resolved distribution of shares in AcadeMedia will amount to approximately SEK 722M, equal to SEK 8.60 per share outstanding. The record date for the right to distribution of shares AcadeMedia is 14 November, 2008.
Excess received shares that do not correspond to a full share in AcadeMedia will be removed from the respective shareholder’s depository account and sold commission-free by Swedbank on behalf of the respective shareholder.
Reduction and increase in the company’s share capital
Because the company has repurchased a total of 8,724,957 treasury shares, the EGM resolved to reduce the company’s share capital with SEK 28,263,923.31 through redemption of the treasury shares without compensation. At the same time, the EGM resolved to increase the company’s share capital through a bonus issue in the amount of SEK 28,263,923.31 through the transfer of SEK 28,263,923.31 from non-restricted equity. No new shares will be issued in connection with the increase in share capital. This will enable the Board, under the authorisation granted by the 2008 AGM, to acquire additional treasury shares as a means for adapting the capital structure to the company's needs.
