Graphit Kropfmühl AG: Commercial register registers squeeze-out and merger
Today the merger of Graphit Kropfmühl Aktiengesellschaft into the major shareholder became effective via the registration in the commercial register of AMG Mining AG. Therefore Graphit Kropfmühl Aktiengesellschaft ceased to exist. Name and trademark are retained via the wholly owned subsidiary GK Graphit Kropfmühl GmbH. The resolution of the annual general meeting from August 27th 2012 regarding the transfer of the shares held by the minority shareholders to the majority shareholder in return for a cash compensation in the amount of EUR 31,92 per share in accordance with § 62 subsection 5 of the German Transformation Act (Umwandlungsgesetz) in connection with § 327a et seq. of the German Stock Companies Act (Aktiengesetz) came into effect simultaneously with this registration in the commercial register.
