Additional dividend in centenary year
The Jungfrau Railway celebrates its centenary on 1 August 2012. In this context, on 14 May 2012, the AGM of Jungfraubahn Holding AG approved a centenary dividend payment in the form of a nominal value reduction of CHF 0.50 per registered share in addition to the regular dividend of CHF 1.80 that has already been paid out. The dividend payment will be made in the form of option rights on registered shares of Jungfraubahn Holding AG without deduction of withholding tax and remains basically tax free for natural persons in Switzerland.
Every shareholder has one free option right (call option) per registered share, which will be tradable on the SIX Swiss Exchange from 2 August 2012 up to and including 5 November 2012. The Executive Board has determined the option conditions so that 25 option rights provide entitlement to the subscription of one Jungfraubahn Holding AG registered share from own stock. The reduced subscription price is CHF 47.50 per registered share, a reduction of around 21% of the closing price on 25 July 2012. The option rights can be exercised at any time during 100 calendar days from 2 August to 9 November 2012, 12.00 h CET.
