Purchasers of registered Holcim shares must be entered in the Swiss share register in order to be considered as voting shareholders.
Under Swiss law and Holcim Ltd’s Articles of Association, an acquirer of Holcim shares needs to be registered in the Holcim Ltd share register to be considered as a shareholder with voting rights. Shares whose holders are not registered are deemed “dispo” shares. They are entitled to the payment of dividends and other distributions, but not to attend and vote at General Meetings.
Holcim maintains one share register maintained in Switzerland by Devigus Engineering AG, which currently maintains the Holcim share register (the “Swiss Share Register”).
