Eureko reduces shareholding in Banco Comercial Portugues
Eureko B.V. hereby announces that on May 13, 2009 it has notified the Portuguese Securities Market Commission (CMVM) and Banco Comercial Português, S.A. ("BCP") that Eureko Group’s qualified shareholding in BCP has been reduced to below 5%.
Eureko continues to hold a direct shareholding and voting interest of 2.52% in BCP, equal to the shareholding of BCP in Eureko. Eureko and BCP will continue to develop joint business initiatives in complementary European domains.
The reduction, which took place through gradual disposals, is in line with Eureko’s earlier announced strategy of de-risking. Eureko maintains limited exposure to the share price performance of BCP on 348,943,260 shares through cash-settled derivative instruments.
