Canon Acquire Remaining Shares in Océ

Canon Inc. ("Canon") announced that the writ of summons commencing formal statutory buyout proceedings under Dutch law ("squeeze out procedure") to the remaining shares in Océ N.V. ("Océ") was issued by Canon Finance Netherlands B.V., a Canon wholly owned subsidiary in the Netherlands, on 24 January 2012.

In the squeeze out procedure Canon offers a purchase price of € 9.75 per ordinary share in the capital of Océ. This is equal to the purchase price Canon paid for the ordinary shares in Océ that it acquired from Orbis Funds ("Orbis"), a transaction that was announced in a press release on 22 December 2011.

The acquisition of Océ shares from Orbis increased Canon's ownership in Océ to 98.83 percent of the entire issued share capital (including 2.38 percent treasury shares held by Océ and including cumulative preference shares). This percentage allows Océ to delist from NYSE Euronext Amsterdam and Canon to initiate the squeeze out procedure. On 16 January 2012 Océ announced the delisting as per 14 February 2012.

Pursuant to Dutch law Canon Finance Netherlands B.V. initiated the squeeze out procedure by the formal service of the writ of summons against the remaining minority shareholders. Because the shares of Océ are traded in book-entry form through the systems of Euroclear Nederland, the minority shareholders are unknown to Canon. As a consequence thereof the service of the writ of summons will in due course also be announced in a Dutch daily newspaper. The proceedings will be instituted by the Enterprise Section of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal.

News

SOMA, producer of flexographic printing presses, slitter rewinders and laminators, has launched a new generation of its successful and well-established Optima² flexo press, during its On-line Product Launch Webinar 2020 — a substitute for its planned drupa 2020 activities.

Manroland Sheetfed has launched the latest member of its benchmark Evolution family – the Roland 900 Evolution, further underlining its position as a world leader in large format press manufacture.

drupa, the world's leading trade fair for printing technologies, has decided to reduce the duration of the trade fair from eleven to nine days for 2021. By doing so, it is responding to the wishes of the partner association VDMA (Printing and Paper Technology Trade Association) and many exhibitors to make the trade fair presentation more efficient and to concentrate the volume of visitors in a targeted manner. This is also in reaction to any continuing travel activities and restrictions.
