Borealis announces extension of the acceptance period in the context of the voluntary reopening of the takeover bid on Rosier

Borealis, a leading provider of innovative solutions in the fields of polyolefins, base chemicals and fertilizers, announces today that it has published a second supplement to the prospectus in the framework of the mandatory public takeover bid launched by Borealis on 2 September 2013 on all Rosier shares which are not already held by Borealis. This supplement concerns mainly the publication of a press release by Rosier, on its interim statement for the second half of 2013.

In addition, Borealis announces that it has been informed that the board of directors of Rosier has approved a supplement to its memorandum in reply. The supplement to the memorandum in reply concerns a change in the position of Mr Robert Semoulin, independent director of Rosier, regarding his  intention to transfer or not to transfer his shares to Borealis in the context of the bid. This supplement to the memorandum in reply is also included in the second supplement to the prospectus.

In light of the information contained in the second supplement to the prospectus, Borealis will extend the acceptance period in the context of the voluntarily reopening of the takeover bid to 4 November 2013 (inclusive) at 4 pm CET (instead of 28 October 2013 previously). The payment of the shares which will be tendered during the voluntary reopening as from 14 October 2013 is scheduled on 8 November 2013.

Any shareholder who has tendered shares during the acceptance period of the voluntary reopening of the bid (i.e. as from 14 October 2013) may withdraw their acceptance until 4 November 2013 (inclusive) at 4 pm CET in accordance with the procedure as set out in the acceptance form.

The prospectus (with the memorandum in reply attached as an annex), the acceptance form, the first and second supplement to the prospectus and the supplement to the memorandum in reply may be obtained free of charge at the counters of ING België NV, or by telephone (+32(0)2 464 60 01 (Dutch), +32(0)2 464 60 02 (French) and +32(0)2 464 60 04 (English)).
