Talenthouse AG ("Talenthouse" or the "Company"), the leading technology platform connecting creatives and brands globally, today calls for an extraordinary shareholders' meeting to resolve on capital restructuring measures and strengthening the Board of Directors.
Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting
The extraordinary shareholders' meeting will be held as a physical meeting in Zug on 13 January 2023.
Capital Restructuring Measures
The Board of Directors proposes an ordinary capital increase combined with a reduction of the nominal value of the shares. In a first step, the nominal value of the shares shall be reduced from CHF 0.10 to CHF 0.05 each. In a second step, new shares with a nominal value of CHF 0.10 each, so-called B-shares, shall be issued. The new B-shares shall be paid-up on the one hand by settlement of off-settable claims against the Company and on the other hand in cash.
As further next steps, the Board of Directors intends to propose to the shareholders, presumably at the next ordinary shareholders' meeting, to (i) create a single class of shares by splitting the B-shares and reducing their nominal value from CHF 0.10 to CHF 0.05 each (share split) and (ii) merge the shares with a nominal value of CHF 0.05 each at a ratio of up to 50:1, in order to create single registered shares with a par value of up to CHF 2.50 each (reverse share split). The share split and the reverse share split require that the new shares will be listed and admitted to trading on SIX Swiss Exchange.
Strengthening of Board of Directors
The Board of Directors proposes to elect Dr. Marcel Reichart, Jeremy Banks and Peter Wild to the board. Short CVs of the candidates are included in the invitation to the extraordinary shareholders' meeting. It is also proposed that Dr. Marcel Reichart will take over the chair from Roman Scharf who will remain a board member. Scott Lanphere will resign as board member and concentrate on the operative business.
Management and Board of Directors are convinced that the proposed measures will put the Company on a stable foundation and allow the Company to invest in its growth initiatives to drive the business forward.
