Osram Cuts Ties With Siemens

Going public on the stock exchange, trading of Osram Licht AG shares will commence on July 8th, 2013, under the ticker symbol “OSR”
The spin-off of Osram Licht AG from Siemens is effective as of today with the final entry in the Commercial Register.

The giant pure-play lighting company is going public on the stock exchange with this move.

The spin-off is made on the basis of the Spin-Off and Acquisition Agreement of November 28th, 2012, authorised by the general meetings of Siemens on January 23rd, 2013 and of Osram Licht AG on January 21st, 2013.

Before the day is over, all shares of Osram Licht AG are to be admitted to the regulated market of the Frankfurt and Munich Stock Exchanges, as well as to the sub-segment of the regulated market with additional post-admission obligations (Prime Standard) of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

Trading of Osram Licht AG shares will commence on July 8th, 2013, under the ticker symbol “OSR" (WKN: LED400; ISIN: DE000LED4000). The overall capital stock of Osram Licht AG is divided into more than 100 million shares. A good 80 percent of these will today be allotted to the current Siemens shareholders at a ratio of 10:1; that is, the given shareholder will receive one new Osram share for every ten Siemens shares.

Osram offers the entire spectrum from LED chip to lamp, luminaires up to complex lighting solutions. The firm specialises in integrated lighting and generates more than 70 percent of its revenue with energy-efficient products. LED-based products today already account for more than 25 percent of Osram's overall revenue.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
