SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES plans to adjust the current bond terms and publishes a call for votes in a vote without a meeting as well as further information on next steps
Kahl am Main, 11 August 2022 – The SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG (SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES) publishes the invitation to vote in a vote without a meeting pursuant to § 18 and §§ 5 et seq. SchVG (Bonds SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG, ISIN: DE000A2AA5H5, WKN: A2AA5H).
SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES has already reached an agreement with the holders of a substantial part of the total bond volume in the amount of € 12.0 million regarding the adjustment of key terms and conditions of the bond. This agreement includes, among other things, the election of a new joint representative of the bondholders and the amendment of the bond terms and conditions to the effect that the call right of the bondholders is temporarily waived for a period of nine (9) months due to the hitherto omitted publication of the audited financial statements for the business years 2020 and 2021.
The complete invitation will be available in the Federal Gazette and on the website of SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES (www.singulus.de) under the section “Meeting of Creditors” https://www.singulus.com/de/ glaeubigerversammlung/ as of August 11, 2022. SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES therefore asks the bondholders to vote in a poll without a meeting within the period from Friday, August 26 at 0:00 a.m. (CEST), until Tuesday, August 30, 2022 at midnight (CEST).
SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES invites the bondholders to participate in the voting and asks them to approve the proposed resolutions in the interest of the company.
If the vote without a meeting pursuant to Art. 18 and Art. 5 et seq. SchVG does not constitute a quorum because the required quorum of 50 % of the outstanding bonds (Art. 15 Para. 3 Sentence 1 SchVG) is not reached, SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES and the voting chairman of the vote without a meeting will invite the bondholders to a subsequent second creditors’ meeting. At the second creditors’ meeting the quorum required for the amendments to the bond conditions is 25 % of the outstanding bonds.
The Executive Board of the SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG and the voting officer of the voting without a meeting will invite all holders of the SINGULUS bond to participate in the second creditors’ meeting, which is expected to take place on September 20, 2022, and to exercise their voting rights. The second creditors’ meeting will take place under the application of the then applicable hygiene regulations. The exact venue is yet to be announced. It is possible to be represented by proxy or alternatively to authorize a proxy of the SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG who will vote according to their explicit instructions.
The company still aims to obtain the two outstanding attestations after the end of the second creditors’ meeting and the legally binding resolutions at the end of October 2022.
