Compensation to the shareholders who have accepted the offer
Rules of the Commerce Stock Exchange Committee (Näringslivets Börskommitté, NBK) regarding Public Offers for the Acquisition of Shares apply to the Offer. These rules means that if Teligent acquires shares in Trio within a period of nine months after payment has commenced in a public offer (subsequent transaction) on terms which are more favourable than the terms of the offer, the bidder must pay compensation to those who have accepted the offer.

The appraisal of the value in the offer shall be based on the market situation when Teligent announced completion of the Offer. At this point of time, the Offer was equivalent to a value of 2,57 SEK per share in Trio.

Upon completion of the agreement entered into on June 14th shareholders in Trio who have accepted the Offer will receive a compensation of 0,15 SEK for each share in Trio that has been submitted in the Offer.

Extra Ordinary Shareholders Meeting
As the completion of the above mentioned agreement brings an additional cost for the acquisition with approx. 15MSEK, the Teligent Board of Directors has decided to summon an Extra Ordinary Shareholders Meeting to approve the acquisition of the shares in Trio according to the agreement entered into on June 14th.

Larger shareholders in Teligent, such as Visionalis AB, Kistefos A/S and SEB, representing approx. 28 per cent of the shares and votes in Teligent, have declared to vote for an approval.
