into registered shares of SMT Scharf AG (ISINDE000A3DRAE2) and included in CASCADE-RS.
Creation of holdings in registered shares
The creation of registered shares positions on the relevant conversion date will be carried out by CBF in the standard processing on 12 August 2022 with value date 15 August 2022 on the custody account balances and positions of pending stock exchange trades.
The positions in the registered shares of SMT Scharf AG are created in unregistered positions (FMB). Order placement in CASCADE-RS is possible from 15 August 2022.
Stock exchange transactions and securities transfers in the registered shares of SMT Scharf AG will be processed for the first time on 15 August 2022.
Securities transfers against payment that are entered in CASCADE will be converted. Securities transfers free of payment that are flagged with match status "J" are converted as well.
To ensure a smooth settlement processing, customers must absolutely avoid a manual conversion, especially of matched instructions against payment. CBF will convert securities transfers against payment into the ISIN of the registered shares automatically in the standard processing on 12 August 2022. Modifications and cancellations of instructions in the ISIN of bearer shares are possible at any time until the automatic conversion. It is recommended that instructions in the ISIN of the registered shares are not entered before 15 August 2022.
Unmatched securities transfers free of payment that are stored in CASCADE will automatically be deleted by T2S after 20 business days and must be re-entered by the participants into registered shares, if required.
Registration of shareholders in the share register
The registration of 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 on the registration of shareholders in the share register is available in the "Guidelines for banks on entering shareholder data in CASCADE-RS" (Announcement RS137).
The share register is kept 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, CBF reserves the right to reject file transfers that have not been arranged in advance.
For re-registrations that are transmitted between 15 August 2022 to 19 August 2022, CBF will charge a discounted price of EUR 0.30 per position. After this time period, CBF customers will be reimbursed accordingly.
