December 3 (Renewables Now) - Shares in Spanish solar energy developer Solarpack Corporacion Tecnologica SA (BME:SPK) will be suspended from trading in Spain as of next Friday at the request of the company's soon-to-be new owner, Spain’s stock market regulator CNMV said on Thursday.

Veleta BidCo Sarl, a special purpose vehicle affiliated with Swedish investment firm EQT AB (STO:EQT), asked for the suspension ahead of final delisting to execute and settle the squeeze-out of minority shareholders after its voluntary takeover bid for Solarpack’s stock exceeded the minimum acceptance level of 75% plus one share.

The suspension will come into force upon the market close on December 9 and remain effective until Solarpack is delisted, CNMV said.

The vehicle was recently able to attain 96.04% of Solarpack’s shares for EUR 26.50 (USD 29.91) in cash. The offer for the squeeze-out was yet to be formulated, EQT said last week.

The Swedish fund expects the settle the offer with the remaining shareholders and delist Solarpack by the end of December.
