    What will happen to the shares of shareholders who don’t accept the cash offer, when TDWC apply for the take over after 08th June?

    Kind Regards

    This is from the FAQ The Walt Disney Company has published for shareholders:

    What if I don’t accept The Walt Disney Company’s tender offer?

    You will retain your shares.

    If The Walt Disney Company reaches the threshold enabling a mandatory buy-out, you will be required to transfer your shares for €2.00 per share.

    The Walt Disney Company does not reach the threshold permitting it to implement a mandatory buy-out, you will retain your shares.

    In any case the recapitalization of up to €1.5 billion is essential for the Euro Disney Group.

    However, simply proceeding with it through a share capital increase would have required that shareholders either pay their pro-rata share of the equity contribution of up to €1.5 billion or experience substantial dilution of their shares.
