The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust and Cascade Investment, investors in Swiss specialty chemical company SIKA, have appealed to the Swiss Federal Administrative Court after they found the decision of The Swiss Financial Markets Authority (FINMA) concerning SIKA unfavorable. SIKA, its current management and some investors are attempting to stave off a bid by French conglomerate Saint-Gobain to gain a controlling interest in SIKA by acquiring Schenker-Winkler Holding (SWH).
The Swiss Financial Markets Authority (FINMA) has denied an appeal by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Trust as well as Cascade Investment, which are both shareholders in Swiss specialty chemical company Sika AG. The shareholders were attempting to appeal a decision by the Swiss Takeover Board to uphold Sika’s opt-out clause, which would allow French conglomerate Saint-Gobain to gain the majority of voting rights in the Swiss company without tendering an offer for all shares by purchasing Schenker-Winkler Holding.
