(ELUX) The Board of Directors of Electrolux will not utilize the
possibility of adjusting conditions for the share redemption offer
amounting to approximately SEK 3,000m.
The conditions were published on March 16, and the Board then reserved
the right to change the redemption price and redemption ratio at the
latest two weeks before the Annual General Meeting if the price of the
Electrolux share would increase significantly and thereby make the
redemption offer less attractive for the shareholders.
The proposed conditions are thus unchanged and can be summarized as
Each A-share gives one class A redemption right, and each B-share gives one class B redemption right.
20 class A redemption rights entitle redemption of one class A share, and 20 class B redemption rights entitle redemption of one class B share. In order to facilitate adjustment of uneven lots, a maximum of 1,000 redemption rights can be used to redeem shares of either class (A and/or B).
The amount to be paid by Electrolux for each redeemed share is SEK 200.
A maximum of 1,000 redemption rights can be sold free of brokers’ commission.
Decision on the proposed redemption offer will be taken at the Annual
General Meeting of shareholders on April 21, 2004.
