On September 24, 2013 (Tue.), Tokyo Electron Limited (hereafter “the Company”) (Code: 8035, Market Division: 1st Section) disclosed that it had agreed with Applied Materials, Inc. (unlisted) on a plan to conduct a business combination using a forward triangular merger scheme under an integrated holding company which will be set up for the business combination.
Following said disclosure, TSE announced on the same day in “Examinations regarding mergers, etc. (not being a substantial surviving company)” that, in the case where such business combination is conducted, the Company will be deemed to not be a substantial surviving company, and therefore the stock of the Company will enter a grace period from the effective date of such business combination, regardless of the technical listing application which the integrated holding company may file.
On February 15, 2014 (Sat.), the Company disclosed a change to a part of the scheme for the planned business combination, changing the triangular merger to a triangular share exchange.
However, regardless of said change, in the case where the business combination is conducted, TSE deems that the Company will not be a substantial surviving company, and therefore the stock of the Company will enter a grace period from the effective date of such business combination.
