Aggreko PLC: Result of Elections in respect of Further Purchase Offer
Aggreko PLC ("Aggreko") announced on 14 March 2012 that it had sent a letter to the holders of its B Shares outlining a proposed offer in relation to its B Shares to be made by Aggreko, subject to certain conditions (the "Further Purchase Offer").
The B Shares were created pursuant to the return of approximately £150 million of cash approved by Shareholders on 5 July 2011, details of which were contained in the Circular to Shareholders dated 10 May 2011 (the "Circular"). The Return of Cash provided Shareholders with three alternatives in relation to their B Shares. As a result of elections made by Shareholders in June 2011, there are currently 6,663,731 B Shares outstanding.
As at 1.00 pm on 5 April 2012 (being the latest time for receipt of elections in respect of the Further Purchase Offer), valid elections to accept the Further Purchase Offer were received in relation to 2,947,585 B Shares (44.23 per cent. of the outstanding B Shares).
It is expected that Aggreko will make the Further Purchase Offer to purchase the 2,947,585 B Shares in respect of which valid elections have been received from Shareholders on 30 April 2012. A written memorandum summarising the terms of the contracts pursuant to which Aggreko is expected to purchase such B Shares and giving the names of the Shareholders selling such B Shares is on display at Aggreko's registered office. Settlement of the Further Purchase Offer is expected to be made on 3 May 2012.
Terms defined in the Circular have the same meaning when used in this announcement.
