Vonovia is offering the BUWOG shareholders a cash consideration of 29.05 euros per BUWOG share. Vonovia also is offering the holders of BUWOG convertible bonds 115,753.65 euros in cash during the initial acceptance period for each convertible bond with a nominal value of 100,000 euros.

The acceptance period will start on February 5 and is scheduled to expire at March 12. The completion of the takeover offer is subject to reaching the mandatory minimum acceptance threshold of at least 50% plus one share of all BUWOG shares at the time of expiry of the acceptance period.
