Today, LAN Airlines S.A. (“LAN”) (NYSE: LFL/ IPSA: LAN) announced that shareholders representing 7,237 ordinary shares of the company, equivalent to 0.00213% of total LAN shares issued and outstanding as of December 15, 2011, exercised their appraisal rights as a result of the agreements reached at the Extraordinary General Shareholders’ Meeting held on December 21, 2011.

As previously informed, this Extraordinary General Shareholders’ Meeting was held to approve the merger of LAN with Sister Holdco S.A. and Holdco II S.A., two special purpose companies created exclusively for purposes of the merger between LAN and TAM S.A.

The shares for which appraisal rights were exercised represent a percentage substantially below the 2.5% threshold of total LAN shares set by the company as a condition for the merger transaction with TAM to be effective.
