This acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, and is expected to close in July 2013. After those conditions are met and the acquisition closes, 3D Systems intends to launch a take-over bid on the remaining 20% of the shares of Phenix Systems, listed on the French stock market (Alternext), followed by a squeeze-out procedure should it reach 95% of the shares or voting rights of Phenix Systems, during the second half of 2013.
