Disclosed inside information pursuant to article 17 Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) transmitted by euro adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.
On 5 July 2016 immigon portfolioabbau ag (formerly Österreichische Volksbanken-Aktiengesellschaft; “immigon”) disclosed as inside information that a redemption val-ue of less than 30 % of the nominal value (instead of zero as expected at the beginning of 2015) in respect of the Preferred Securities (ISIN XS0201306288) issued by ÖVAG Finance (Jersey) Limited may be expected. The redemption value of the Preferred Securities issued by ÖVAG Finance (Jersey) Limited depends, inter alia, on the amount of the repayment under the supplementary capital (Ergänzungskapital) issued by immigon and held by ÖVAG Finance (Jersey) Limited, i.e. whether the total of the losses attributed to such supplementary capital exceeds the total of the profits allocated to the supplementary capital over the term of the supplementary capital; such net loss needs to be deducted from the redemption amount (nominal value).
In the course of the preparation of the drawing up of the annual financial statements of immigon as at 31 December 2016 immigon has reached the conclusion that the outlook published ad hoc on 5 July 2016 needs to be revised due to better results than expected in the wind down of immigon. At present, immigon’s wind-down plan shows that upon completion of the liquidation of immigon a redemption value of the Preferred Securities of more than 30 % of the nominal value can be expected. From today’s perspective it is more likely than not that the redemption value will be more than 50 % but significantly less than 100 % of the nominal value. It is noted that the amount and the point in time of the payment cannot be predicted more precisely at present, because the results of the winddown and of the formal liquidation of immigon will have to be available. Having said this, in the specific situation of immigon as winddown company there are also scenarios conceivable resulting in a redemption value of up to 100 %, but also of less than 50 %. immigon is a wind-down company in accordance with the Federal Act on the Recovery and Resolution of Banks (BaSAG) and is thus exposed to uncertainties and risks in its winddown process, including risks related to the proceeds achievable in the course of the sale of its assets, outstanding loans, higher expenses and warranty claims.
