Bär & Karrer Advises lastminute.com on Partial Self-Tender Offer

May 2018

On 21 September 2017, an extraordinary shareholders' meeting of the SIX Swiss Exchange listed lastminute.com N.V. authorized the board of directors to repurchase up to 33 1/3% of the company's share capital by means of a partial self-tender offer. The resolution adopted under Dutch law contained detailed information, among others regarding the period for which the authorization is granted, the manner in which the shares are repurchased and the price range within which the offer price must be set.

Based on this resolution, on 10 April 2018, lastminute.com published a partial self-tender offer for around 15% of its share capital. The offer period runs from 25 April 2018 until 9 May 2018 and the offer price amounts to CHF 16.

Bär & Karrer is acting as legal counsel of lastminute.com in connection with the partial self-tender offer. The team includes Dieter Dubs and Fabienne Perlini-Frehner (both Listed Companies and M&A) and Peter Reinarz (Tax).
