Frankfurt am Main, 20-Apr-2016 — /EuropaWire/ — Deutsche Börse: On Monday, Deutsche Börse announced unscheduled changes to MDAX. As a result of the expected acquisition of Wincor Nixdorf AG by the acquirer Diebold, Incorporated, the tendered share line of Wincor Nixdorf AG (ISIN DE000A169QN2) will be deleted and replaced with the prior Wincor Nixdorf AG share line (ISIN DE000A0CAYB2). This change is due to the end of the final tender period of the acquisition from 15 April 2016. This process ensures that the relevant criteria of index continuity and tradability are upheld.
As a result of the acquisition there will be significant changes in the shareholder structure. Therefore, the free float of Wincor Nixdorf AG changed by more than 10 percentage points. According to the rules in the Guide to the Equity Indices of Deutsche Börse AG, the company’s free float will be adjusted in the index from the current 90.12 percent to 20.25 percent.
All changes will become effective as of 21 April 2016.
