Bär & Karrer Advises Alpine Select on Public Share Buy-back

On 10 January 2017, Alpine Select Ltd, Zug, invited to an extraordinary shareholders' meeting which will take place on 7 February 2017. At this shareholders' meeting, the shareholders will, among other things, vote on a capital reduction through the cancellation of shares which have been repurchased under a share buy-back program at a fixed price.

The share buy-back program related to a maximum of 3,580,000 own shares, corresponding to around 25% of Alpine Select's share capital registered with the commercial register, and was settled with value date 30 December 2016.

Bär & Karrer acted as Alpine Select's legal counsel in connection with the public share buy-back program. The team included Dieter Dubs and Fabienne Perlini (both Listed Companies and M&A).
