This website and the information contained within it (together referred to as the “website”) is an information resource for shareholders of Alpine Electronics Inc. (“Alpine”). Through this website shareholders can access information created by Oasis Management Company Ltd. (“Oasis”), the investment manager to the Oasis Investments II Master Fund Ltd. (“Oasis Fund”), related to the share exchange agreed upon between Alps Electric Co. Ltd. (“Alps”) and Alpine as announced by Alpine on July 27, 2017 (the “Share Exchange Agreement”).
The materials on this website include Oasis’s opinion that for the protection of their economic interests, shareholders of Alpine should reject the proposed Share Exchange Agreement of 0.68 Alps shares for every one (1) Alpine share by (a) expressing their dissenting view in response to the proposed Share Exchange Agreement, and (b) exercising their voting rights against the proposals at the EGM where Alpine management will seek special approval (no less than 2/3 of the voting shares at present) in the shareholders meeting for the Share Exchange Agreement.
Oasis encourages minority shareholders of Alpine to take these actions to protect their economic interests.
Oasis also encourages minority shareholders of Alpine to send their questions and suggestions to Oasis with respect to Oasis’s opinion concerning the Share Exchange Agreement and Oasis’s valuation.
However, in this website Oasis is by no means soliciting or requesting shareholders to jointly exercise their voting rights together with Oasis. Shareholders that have an agreement to jointly exercise their voting rights are regarded as Joint Holders under the Japanese large shareholding disclosure rules, and they must file notification of their aggregate share ownership with the relevant Japanese authority for public disclosure.
Oasis disclaims its intention to be treated as a Joint Holder with other shareholders under the Japanese Financial Instruments and Exchange Act (“FIEA) by virtue of its act to express its view or opinion or other activities to engage in dialogue with other shareholders in or through this website.
This website exclusively represents the opinions, interpretations, and estimates of Oasis in relation to the Share Exchange Agreement. Oasis is expressing those opinions solely in its capacity as an investment advisor to the Oasis Fund.
