Austrian B&C Industrieholding acquires more than 50% of AMAG.

(SeeNews) - Mar 14, 2013 - Austrian B&C Industrieholding GmbH said yesterday it has increased its stake in aluminium group Austria Metall AG (WBAG:AMAG), or AMAG, to over 50% from previously 29.9%.

Of that, 46.13% are attributable to a participation agreement with Austrian regional bank Oberbank AG (WBAG:OBS), part of 3-Banken-Gruppe, and to a shareholder agreement with AMAG Arbeitnehmer Privatstiftung (ANPS). The rest has to do with an agreement for pre-emption rights and call options entered into with RLB OOe Alu Invest GmbH, a 100% subsidiary of Invest Holding GmbH.

B&C had improved its offer to EUR 23.40 (USD 30.34) per share plus dividend for 2012 from EUR 20.81 per share plus dividend.

AMAG's total shares and voting rights are 35,264.
