New: All for One Midmarket AG / Name Change Approved
Stuttgart, 25 June 2008 – It was with a big majority that AC-Service AG's Annual General Meeting today approved a resolution to change AC-Service AG into All for One Midmarket AG.
The Supervisory and Management Boards had recommended this proposal to the Annual General Meeting as part of implementing the corporate strategy, which calls for moving forward along the dynamic and robust growth path as a leading full service provider within the SAP midmarket segment where German is spoken. In the course of the 3rd quarter of 2008, the German organisation of the largest business division "Integrated Solutions" and the Group's parent are expected to form All for One Midmarket AG (ISIN DE0005110001), which is listed on the Prime Standard segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
Before the name change, All for One Midmarket Solutions & Services GmbH, Stuttgart, will merge into AC-Service AG. This name change will help streamline the entire Group's organisation and will increase the focus on the integrated business model of this SAP full service provider.
"We have already accomplished a great deal in the SAP segment with the All for One brand over the past years. Now, with the merger into AC-Service AG and the name change, we want to convey yet another message both inside and outside the organisation - we are a modern high-growth company and want to be seen as such", said Lars Landwehrkamp, the Management Board spokesman.
The names of the Swiss subsidiaries of the new All for One Midmarket AG remain unchanged as AC-Service (Schweiz) AG and Process Partner AG respectively. The names of the subsidiaries in Belgium and Luxemburg as well the KWP Group also remain unchanged.
The successful restructuring of the corporate financing also met with great approval and was reported in an ad hoc announcement released on 24 June 2008, the day before the Annual General Meeting. The signing of new long-term credit agreements to enable the planned investments in new data centers and to further integrate the corporate divisions, forms an important basis for further growth and for increased profitability.
"We have now got the financing partners and the stability we need to put our ambitious projects into action in the following quarters", stated Stefan Land, the company's Chief Financial Officer.
All other agenda items were approved with overwhelming majority. 63% of the shares were represented.
