Worldline: successful offer for Ingenico shares
(CercleFinance.com) - Worldline and Ingenico have announced that after the settlement-delivery of the Worldline's friendly tender offer for Ingenico shares, which is scheduled for 28 October, Worldline will hold 56.
474,416 Ingenico actions, or 88.64% of its capital and at least 83.20% of its voting rights.
The payment solutions group will therefore hold 2,892,092 OCEANEs (bonds convertible into new or existing shares; i.e. 99.57% of the total in issue), which will easily exceed the acceptance threshold that was set at 60% of Ingenico's equity capital (on a fully-diluted basis).
The tender offer will be opened again, with the AMF publishing its schedule. Worldline also confirms its intention to implement a squeeze-out on Ingenico's shares and OCEANEs after the offer is reopened.
