Finally, Shares of Siliconware Precision Industries (ADR) (NASDAQ:SPIL), ended its last trade with 7.85% gain, and closed at $6.87.
Siliconware Precision Industries Co., held its First Extraordinary Shareholders Meeting of 2015 to discuss the projected amendment of certain articles of the Companys Article of Incorporation and certain provisions of the Companys Handling Procedures for the Acquisition and Disposal of Assets.
According to the voting results, the votes in favor of the aforementioned two proposals are far more than the votes against such proposals. However, a high number of abstained votes resulted in the two proposals marginally failing to pass. Looking at the main reasons of such a result, the Company believes that the attempt by Advanced Semiconductor Engineering, Inc. (ASE) to enjoin the Company from convening its legitimately called Extraordinary Shareholders Meeting caused the spread of misleading information in the market that led to such a result.
Since ASE initiated its tender offer on August 21, 2015 for the Companys shares, ASE has repeatedly claimed that the tender offer is a pure financial investment and that it has no plans to intervene in the Companys operations. Yet even before ASE has legally become a shareholder of the Company, it had made several public statements against the proposals before the Companys Extraordinary Shareholders Meeting and has even petitioned for an injunction against the Company. These actions already constitute intervention with the Companys operations and severely affect the Companys stable development in addition to the interest of all shareholders.
