Grand City Properties S.A. launches public tender offer for up to 12,500,000 shares
Luxembourg, 28 January 2021 - The board of directors of Grand City Properties S.A. (the "Company") (ISIN LU0775917882 / WKN A1JXCV) resolved today to utilize the authorization of the annual general meeting of 24 June 2020 in order to buy back up to 12,500,000 shares of the Company (corresponding to up to 7.27% of the Company's share capital) by way of a public tender offer with a purchase price in the range of EUR 20.00 to EUR 21.25 per share (excluding ancillary acquisition costs). The final purchase price per share will be determined by the Company after the expiration of the acceptance period in accordance with the final terms of the offer document.
The final purchase price will be determined by the Company on the basis of tenders received from shareholders and will be equal to the lowest price within the given purchase price range at which the Company can, based on the tenders received, purchase such number of shares as to be determined by the Company in accordance with the terms of the offer. Shareholders may tender all or part of their shares in the Company by either specifying a price within the purchase price range or with no specified price, in which case they commit to sell their tendered shares at the final purchase price as determined by the Company. The final purchase price, which will be identical for all shares tendered into the offer, will be calculated in accordance with the terms of the offer document on the basis of the number of shares tendered and the tender prices set by shareholders. If and to the extent the shares tendered into the offer at a price equal to, or lower than, the final purchase price exceed the number of shares to be acquired by the Company under the offer, tenders will be accepted on a pro rata basis.
It is expected that the offer document for the tender offer will be published on 29 January 2021. The acceptance period is intended to start on 29 January 2021, 00:00 (CET) and to end on 12 February 2021, 24:00 (CET). To the extent necessary and legally permissible, the tender offer can be extended, suspended and also resumed at any time. The Company reserves the right to amend the offer, including an extension of the offer period and an increase in the purchase price range.
Further details on the public tender offer will be made available in the offer document which will be published on the Company's website (www.grandcityproperties.com) under "Investor Relations - Equity/Share-buy-back" prior to the commencement of the acceptance period.
