SR Owns 85% Of SN

Wed Apr 26, 2000 9:26 pm

An agreement has been reached between the Belgian government and Swissair for the latter to get 85% of the shares of Sabena, provided the EU Commission gives its okay.

In return, the Belgian government would become the main shareholder of SAirGroup with 3.3%, and they would be able to appoint the vice president.

The sale of the additional 35% of shares will raise Belgium 150 million Euro, or USD 139.530.000.

Best regards,

TriStar.

I hope they both get a new look alike color scheme. Like Premiair and Airtours.

The belgian government also said they could sell their last shares, and so, totally privatise Sabena

Finally there is the agreement we have all been waiting for. I can't say I'm very happy, I feel a little bit strange, now that our Belgian airline is in foreign hands. But on the other hand, I realize that it is the only possible way for SN to survive in tommorow's economy. I just hope Swissair will always keep the name Sabena. They may be the main share holder now but that doesn't want to say SN doesn't stay ours.
