2020 Annual Report, Notice of 2021 Annual General Meeting
Proposed purchase of 1 in every 32 ordinary shares of 1p each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") at 40p per share by way of a tender offer ("the Tender Offer")
On 15 March 2021, the Board of Raven announced in its results for the year ended 31 December 2020, that the Company intended to offer to purchase 1 in every 32 Ordinary Shares by way of a tender offer at a price of 40p per share. The Tender Offer is open to all holders of Ordinary Shares on the Company's register at 6.00 p.m. on Thursday 17 June 2021, who may participate by tendering all or a proportion of their pro rata entitlement of Ordinary Shares at 1 for 32 at 40p per share.
If the maximum number of 18,171,981 Ordinary Shares is acquired this will result in an amount of £7.3 million being paid by the Company to its shareholders. It is intended that the Ordinary Shares purchased under the Tender Offer will be cancelled and not available for re-issue. No Ordinary Shares will be purchased in relation to the Tender Offer unless the relevant resolution to be proposed at the Annual General Meeting is passed.
Raven announces that it has published today a circular containing full details of the Tender Offer, a separate circular containing the notice of Annual General Meeting convened for 10.30 a.m. on Friday 18 June 2021 and its 2020 Annual Report.
