Following signing of the Business Combination Agreement, TE Connectivity Sensors Germany Holding AG today published the decision to make a voluntary public takeover offer to all shareholders of First Sensor AG for the acquisition of all outstanding no-par value bearer shares in First Sensor AG against payment of a cash consideration of EUR 28.25 per First Sensor share. This corresponds to a premium of 14.6% to the XETRA closing price on 24 May 2019, the last trading day before the company confirmed the existence of negotiations with TE, and a premium of 31.7% to the 3-month volume-weighted average share price as of the same date. The publication of the offer document, which will initiate the commencement of the acceptance period, is expected to take place in early July 2019.

These shareholders have committed to accept the takeover offer for all shares held by them.
