New conditions concerning public voluntary offer for BWT shares
Aqua Invest GmbH (FN 420402 p), indirectly a 100% subsidiary of WAB Privatstiftung, announced on August 26, 2014 that it is contemplating to launch a public voluntary offer pursuant to §§ 4 ff of the Takeover Act (Übernahmegesetz) (the "contemplated offer") to the shareholders of BWT Aktiengesellschaft (FN 96162 s) with the price per share (ISIN AT0000737705) amounting to EUR 17.-- and the offer being subject to the condition precedent that acceptances for at least 1,936,857 shares in BWT Aktiengesellschaft will be received (the "90%-condition"). Due to the changed market environment, Aqua Invest GmbH now intends to launch the contemplated offer in an amended form insofar as the contemplated offer shall neither contain the 90%-condition nor any other condition. Aqua Invest GmbH therefore contemplates to launch an unconditional public voluntary offer pursuant to §§ 4 ff of the Takeover Act (Übernahmegesetz) for the acquisition of all shares in BWT Aktiengesellschaft for a price of EUR 17.-- per share
This document does neither constitute an offer of shares nor a solicitation or invitation to offer shares in BWT Aktiengesellschaft in or from any jurisdiction where it is prohibited to make such solicitation or invitation or where it is prohibited to launch an offer by or to certain individuals.
