SAP übernimmt SuccessFactors

Die SAP und SuccessFactors haben am 23. Februar 2012 mitgeteilt, dass die SAP im Anschluss an das erfolgreich durchgeführte Übernahmeangebot für alle ausstehenden Aktien der SuccessFactors, Inc.gegen Barleistung die Akquisition nunmehr erfolgreich abgeschlossen hat. Die Akquisition wurde mittels eines sogenannten Short-Form-Merger nach Delaware-Recht abgeschlossen, bei dem die hundertprozentige, mittelbar gehaltene SAP-Tochtergesellschaft Saturn Expansion Corporation mit SuccessFactors verschmolzen wurde mit der Folge, dass SuccessFactors als hundertprozentige Tochtergesellschaft der SAP America, Inc., der US-amerikanischen SAP-Landesgesellschaft, fortbesteht. Als Folge dieser Verschmelzung wurden alle ausstehenden SuccessFactors-Aktien, die nicht im Rahmen des Übernahmeangebots der SAP angedient wurden, in einen Ausgleichsanspruch in Höhe von 40.00 USD je Aktie ohne Zinsen und abzüglich etwaiger Quellensteuer umgewandelt, was der im Rahmen des Übernahmeangebots an die Aktionäre gezahlten Gegenleistung entspricht (dies gilt nicht für diejenigen Aktien, die von SuccessFactors, von SAP America oder deren hundertprozentigen Tochtergesellschaften, oder von Aktionären gehalten werden, die ihr Abfindungsrecht nach Delaware-Recht ausüben).

SuccessFactors hat die NYSE, die Deutsche Börse, und das Professional Segment der Euronext Paris über den Abschluss der Akquisition informiert. Der Handel mit SuccessFactors-Aktien an diesen Börsen wurde aufgrund des daraufhin eingeleiteten Delistings am 23. Februar 2012 eingestellt.
