  • June 30, 2023: Last trading day of old shares (ISIN: CH0027148649) on SIX Swiss Exchange
  • July 3, 2023: First trading day of new shares (ISIN: CH1276028821) on SIX Swiss Exchange (ex-date)

The reverse share split may result in fractions of new registered shares of the Company for individual shareholders. This is the case if shareholders hold a number of Santhera shares that is not divisible by 10 as of June 30, 2023. Remaining shareholdings between 1 and 9 are rounded down and affected shareholders will receive a cash compensation (in CHF) for their fractions corresponding to a three-day volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of the Santhera share on the SIX Swiss Exchange prior to the ex-date of the reverse share split.

The new shares issued following the reverse stock split will have a new International Securities Identification Number (ISIN) while the existing shares held prior to the reverse stock split will be canceled. For technical reasons, shareholders who wish to continue exercising their voting rights are asked to ensure a re-registration in the Company’s share register.

Further information regarding the reverse share split can be found in the AGM invitation and the Q&A on Santhera’s website here.
