The Grounds Real Estate Development AG: Conversion to registered shares and inclusion in CASCADE-RS
The bearer shares of The Grounds Real Estate Development AG (ISIN DE000A0STSH7) will be converted on
30 October 2017
into registered shares of The Grounds Real Estate Development AG (ISIN DE000A2GSVV5) and included in CASCADE-RS.
Creation of holdings in registered shares
The creation of registered share positions as of the relevant conversion date will be carried out by Clearstream Banking1 in standard processing on 27 October 2017 for value date 30 October 2017 on the custody account balances and positions of open stock exchange transactions.
The positions in the registered shares from The Grounds Real Estate Development AG are created in unregistered positions (FMB). The order placement in CASCADE-RS is possible starting on 30 October 2017.
Securities market transactions and holding transfers in the registered shares of The Grounds Real Estate Development AG are first processed on 30 October 2017.
Security transfers against payment that have been entered in CASCADE and are pending for settlement will also be converted. Security transfers free of payment that are flagged with match status "J" are converted as well.
To ensure smooth processing of the settlement, manual conversion by customers must absolutely be avoided, especially of matched orders against payments. Clearstream Banking will convert the transfer of securities against payment into the ISIN of the registered shares automatically in standard processing on 27 October 2017. Modifications and cancellations of orders in the ISIN of the bearer shares are possible at any time until the automatic conversion. We recommend only entering orders in the ISIN of the registered shares from 30 October 2017.
The securities transfers free of payment that are stored in CASCADE will be cancelled automatically and must be re-entered by the participants into registered shares, if required.
Registration of shareholders in the share register
The registration of the shareholders in the share register of the issuer is implemented via the depository banks by re-registration in CASCADE-RS using the re-registration type "2" ("other not from purchase"). Information about the notification of the shareholders in the share register can be taken from the "Guidelines for banks on entering shareholder data in CASCADE-RS" (CBF announcement RS137 of 9 November 2007).
The share register is managed by HV AG.
Note about submission planning
Due to the processing capacities in CASCADE-RS, submissions amounting to 10,000 re-registrations or more per transfer must be arranged in advance with Client Services. Within the scope of overall coordination, Clearstream Banking reserves the right to reject file transfers that have not been arranged in advance.
For re-registrations that are transmitted in the period from 30 October 2017 to 3 November 2017, Clearstream Banking charges a discounted price of EUR 0.30 per position. After this time period, Clearstream Banking customers will be reimbursed accordingly.
