News Release

2016-06-03: Xanthus Holdings plc (MT0000580101 / A1JGT0 / XNH) “Xanthus” announces that the Board of Directors has decided in its meeting today to acquire 100% of the shares of solidare real estate holding GmbH, Düsseldorf. As a prerequisite for the implementation of the takeover, the Board has resolved to rename the company to solidare real estate holding plc («solidare»). The solidare shares are being traded with immediate effect under the same ISIN: MT0000580101, WKN: A1JGT0. As soon as the name change has become technically effective, also the symbol will change to “SRH”.


The Xanthus shareholders had already decided last year to fully transfer the remaining operative business to the shareholders by separating off a subsidiary company and through a capital reduction. After the statutory deadlines had expired, this transaction became effective in early May, whereby for all practical purposes Xanthus separated off all its operating assets and liabilities.

solidare real estate holding GmbH in Düsseldorf was identified as an attractive company that showed interest in a “reverse takeover” and that fulfils all the necessary criteria (size, forward-looking business model, strong balance sheet, etc.) in order give the listed company a new breath of life and ensures its continued success.

All preconditions for the consummation of the transaction have been fulfilled by the parties as of today. In particular, these comprised the renaming of Xanthus to solidare, the election of Zeki Yigit onto the Board, the presentation of a Section 73 Report from the auditing firm RSM in Malta that confirms the impairment value of the object of purchase, and the Fair Market Value Report, which was commissioned by Xanthus about solidare real estate holding GmbH, as well as the subscription to a cash capital increase by the former main shareholder.

solidare is under the operational management of its principal shareholder Zeki Yigit.


Xanthus has acquired solidare for a total of EUR 38.000.000. The purchase price was paid in full through the issuance of 38 million shares at the nominal price of EUR 1.00 each. Furthermore, the former main shareholder subscribed to a capital increase for cash of EUR 824.224.00. The newly issued shares will be included in trading in the Entry Standard segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange as soon as possible.

After the conclusion of all restructuring measures and the inclusion of the shares from the purchase price and the capital increase for cash, solidare will have a total of 40.800.000 outstanding shares issued and outstanding.
