Siemens Offers EUR 6.10 in Cash Per IBS Share

on 02 10, 2012

Siemens plans a focused expansion of its industry software portfolio and intends to make a voluntary public takeover offer to the shareholders of IBS Aktiengesellschaft excellence, collaboration, manufacturing (WKN 622840) (“IBS AG”) to acquire all shares in IBS AG. IBS shareholders are to receive EUR 6.10 per share in cash. This corresponds to a premium of approx. 33 percent compared to today’s closing share price for IBS AG (XETRA). Through the acquisition of IBS AG, a supplier of software solutions for industrial quality and production management, Siemens complements its offering of industrial automation solutions. The management board of IBS AG welcomes the offer from Siemens in principle.
Siemens has informed the management board of IBS AG of its plan to launch a voluntary public takeover offer. Today, Dr. Klaus-Jürgen Schröder, founder, Chief Executive Officer and major shareholder of IBS AG, and members of his family, who directly or indirectly hold some 51 percent of the shares in IBS AG, agreed to sell their shares to Siemens. The completion of this agreement and the takeover offer is conditional upon certain antitrust approvals and is subject to a minimum acceptance threshold of 75 percent, among other conditions. Since 2007, Siemens holds almost eight percent of the shares in IBS AG and has secured an additional around five percent of the shares through agreements reached today with members of management at IBS AG and the company itself. These agreements will only be consummated, if the takeover offer is completed. As a result, Siemens has access to a total stake of 64 percent of the shares in IBS AG.
Anton S. Huber, CEO of the Siemens-Division Industry Automation: “We are submitting a cash offer to all shareholders of IBS AG with an attractive premium. Through the acquisition we can enhance our long-time collaboration with IBS AG and directly complement our offering in the area of industrial quality and production management. Employees of IBS AG will benefit from joining a world-leading portfolio for automation solutions and the strong worldwide presence of Siemens.”
IBS AG was founded in 1982 and is listed in the Prime Standard of the German stock exchange. Employing around 200 personnel, IBS AG offers cross-company standard software systems for quality and production management as well as compliance management.

    Lenovo offers the IdeaPad S10 netbook in two configurations, with one having 512 MB of memory and an 80 GB hard drive and the second configuration having 1 GB of memory and a 160 GB hard drive. For use as a secondary PC, it has some good features and a low price; I don’t think it’s that bad an offering and both configurations should be capable of accomodating most users’s needs such as being able to connect to the Internet, check and write emails, listen to music and perform basic applications.
