Fuel Cells Works, Aker Clean Hydrogen: Update on Merger With Aker Horizons

Reference is made to the previous stock exchange announcements by Aker Clean Hydrogen AS (“Aker Clean Hydrogen” or “ACH”) regarding the contemplated merger with Aker Horizons ASA ( “Aker Horizons”). The merger will be carried out as a triangular merger whereby ACH will merge with Aker Horizons’ wholly-owned subsidiary AH Seksten AS as the surviving entity and Aker Horizons will issue consideration shares.

The creditor notice period for the merger will expire at midnight on Thursday 16 June 2022. Provided that no creditors have objected to the merger by such time, the merger is expected to be completed after close of trading on the Oslo Stock Exchange on Friday 17 June 2022 (the “Effective Date”), which accordingly will be the last day of trading in the ACH shares on Euronext Growth (Oslo).

Eligible shareholders in ACH (other than Aker Horizons) will receive 0.2381 merger consideration shares in Aker Horizons for each share owned in ACH as of the expiry of the Effective Date, as such shareholders appear in the shareholder register with Euronext Securities Oslo (the “VPS”) as at the expiry of two trading days thereafter (the “Record Date”), expected to be Tuesday 21 June 2022.

The consideration shares are expected to be delivered to the eligible shareholders through VPS on or about Wednesday 22 June 2022. Fractions of shares will not be allotted, and the number of consideration shares delivered to each eligible ACH shareholder will be rounded down to the nearest whole number. Excess shares, which as a result of this round down will not be allotted, will be issued to and sold by DNB Markets, a part of DNB Bank ASA. The sales proceeds will be given to Aker Horizons, which will give the sales proceeds further to charity.
