(ISIN LU0953526265, 3W9), the holding company of AEG Power Solutions Group, a global provider of power electronics systems and solutions for industrial power supplies and renewable energy applications, announces that bondholders today approved the Company's restructuring plan of its EUR 100 million corporate bond (ISIN DE000A1A29T7, 3W9A). Today, 41,038 notes with equal number of voting rights, i.e. 41.0 percent of the bond, were present, of which 99.9633 percent voted in favor of the restructuring plan. No bondholder entered an objection on the record. The key elements of the financial restructuring plan are a debt-to-equity swap of 50 percent of the outstanding bond nominal, the issuance of a new EUR 50 million bond, a cash capital increase by contribution of EUR 4 million (rounded) with subscription rights for current shareholders and the implementation of a management incentive program (MIP). The MIP will focus on the sustainable improvement of equity value and, therefore, bondholders' recovery. In addition, management developed a comprehensive operational restructuring program. Operational measures comprise divestments of non-core activities, improvements of business processes, headcount reductions as well as focus of business resources on the core UPS business. Many measures have already been implemented. In a next step, as soon as all legal formalities have been met, shareholders will be asked to vote on the restructuring plan. The Board of Directors of the Company and major shareholders fully support the financial restructuring concept. Thereafter, the capital measures will be implemented. -- End of Announcement -- Characters: c. 1,800 About 3W Power/AEG Power Solutions: 3W Power S.A.
