Industry outlook

The company is holding an EGM on 11 December to approve conversion of CHF54.7m of the c CHF80m debt held my majority shareholder FEFAM into 36.5m new shares. This will increase FEFAM's holding to 64.3%, so FEFAM has applied to the Swiss Stock Exchange for an exemption from the requirement to make a public takeover offer for the company. The current chairman is retiring after five years' service. His place is being taken by David Ishag, CEO of Golden Partner, advisors to FEFAM.
