Final conversion of subscription price into DKK – for subscription by exercising subscription rights
NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN AUSTRALIA, CANADA, JAPAN OR THE UNITED STATES
As previously announced, SAS AB (“SAS”) has resolved to conduct an issue of ordinary shares of up to approximately SEK 6 billion with preferential rights for existing shareholders. The subscription price is SEK 2.63 per share. Holders of subscription rights registered in Denmark electing to exercise subscription rights will pay an amount in DKK corresponding to the subscription price of SEK 2.63 per share.
The final currency conversion rate has been determined and resulted in an amount of DKK 1.819233 per share to be paid. The conversion rate for subscription by exercising subscription rights is based on ECB’s fixing exchange rate at 2:15 CET on 2 April 2009, adjusted as described in the prospectus approved by the Board of Directors of SAS and published on 17 March 2009.
The prospectus and an information brochure in Danish are available from Nordea Bank Danmark on telephone number +45 33 33 50 92 and on the website of SAS, www.sasgroup.net.
