FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

18 APRIL 2018

 

RECOMMENDED ACQUISITION

of

STADIUM GROUP PLC

("Stadium" or the "Company")

by

TT ELECTRONICS PLC

("TT")

Scheme of Arrangement (the "Scheme") becomes Effective

 

The Boards of Stadium and TT are pleased to announce that, further to yesterday's announcement by Stadium that the Court had sanctioned the Scheme, the Court Order has been delivered to the Registrar of Companies today and accordingly the Scheme has now become effective, in accordance with its terms and Stadium is now a wholly owned subsidiary of TT.

 

As previously advised, trading in Stadium Shares on AIM was suspended with effect from 7.30 a.m. on 17 April 2018. The cancellation of trading of Stadium Shares on AIM is expected to take place at 7.00 a.m. on 19 April 2018. As a result of the Scheme having become effective, share certificates in respect of Stadium Shares will, by 7.00 a.m. on 19 April 2018, cease to be valid documents of title and entitlements to Stadium Shares held in uncertificated form in CREST are being cancelled.

 

A Scheme Shareholder on the register of members of Stadium at the Scheme Record Time, being 6.00 p.m. on 17 April 2018, will be entitled to receive 120 pence for each Scheme Share held. Settlement of the consideration to which any Scheme Shareholder is entitled will be effected by way of the despatch of cheques or the crediting of CREST accounts (for Shareholders holding Scheme Shares in certificated form and in uncertificated form respectively) as soon as practicable. The latest date for despatch of cheques and settlement of the Cash Consideration in relation to the Offer through CREST is on or by 2 May 2018.

 

Full details of the Acquisition are set out in the scheme document dated 15 March 2018 (the "Scheme Document"). Defined terms used but not defined in this announcement (the "Announcement) have the same meanings set out in the Scheme Document.

 

The Company is no longer in an "Offer Period" as defined in the Code and accordingly the dealing disclosure requirements previously notified to investors no longer apply.
