Tender document


This is a hostile tender offer carried out by ASX, and as such is has a higher risk of being cancelled than other tenders presented on this site. Moreover, the tender is subject to regulatory approval. However, a similar tender has already been carried out successfully 3 months ago, so quite likely the situation will repeat itself. Please refer to pages 13-17 of the tender doc, to familiarize yourself with the whole proxy fight situation. The offer is in Taiwanese dollars, NT$275/share, which is equivalent to c. $8.22 per ADR.
