Notice of Extraordinary General Meeting of Jyske Bank A/S

Udgivet den 27-03-2017  |  kl. 08:47  |  

Silkeborg, 2017-03-27 08:47 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This is to give notice of an Extraordinary General Meeting of Jyske Bank A/S, which will be held on Thursday 20 April 2017, at 10.00 a.m. at Vestergade 8-16, 8600 Silkeborg, Denmark.

 

At the Annual General Meeting held on 21 March 2017, the motions to amend the Articles of Association were adopted. However, the members in general meeting with a right to vote represented less than 90% of the share capital, wherefore the final adoption of the amendments to the Articles of Association is subject to adoption at an Extraordinary General Meeting.

 

The AGENDA for consideration and final adoption:

 

 

1 Consideration of motions proposed by the Supervisory Board:
  1 Reduction of Jyske Bank's nominal share capital by DKK 58,809,550, or 5,880,955 shares of a nominal value of DKK 10 from DKK 950,399,990 to DKK 891,590,440. With reference to S.188(1) of the Danish Companies Act we point out that the capital reduction takes place through cancellation of previously acquired own shares acquired by Jyske Bank in accordance with authorisation from members in general meeting. Hence, the capital reduction is spent on payment of capital owners.
 
If the motion is adopted, the company's holding of own shares will be reduced by 5,880,955 shares of a nominal value of DKK 10.  These shares have been bought back at a total amount of
DKK 1,749,999,269 which implies that apart from the nominal capital reduction a total amount of DKK 1,691,189,719 has been paid to the capital owners in connection with the buy-backs. The capital reduction took place at a share premium since it was at 297.57 for each share of a nominal amount of DKK 10, corresponding to the average price at which the shares have been bought back.
 
In consequence of the above, the following amendments to the Articles of Association are proposed:
Art.2 to be amended to the effect that the Bank's nominal share capital be DKK 891,590,440 distributed on 89,159,044 shares.
 
  2 The authority set out in Art. 4(2) of the Articles of Association to expire on 1 March 2022 instead of 1 March 2019.
 
  3 The authority set out in Art. 4(3) of the Articles of Association to expire on 1 March 2022 instead of 1 March 2019.
 
  4 In connection with the proposed amendments to the Articles of Association, the Supervisory Board proposes that the members in general meeting authorise the Supervisory Board to make such amendments as may be required by the Danish Business Authority in connection with registration of the Articles of Association.
