For Immediate Release
GREENCORE GROUP PLC
Publication of Circular
20 December 2018
Further to the announcement earlier today by Greencore Group plc (“Greencore” or the “Group”) setting out further details of the tender offer of up to approximately £509 million (the “Tender Offer”), Greencore now announces that the circular to shareholders in connection with the Tender Offer, which also includes notice of Greencore’s Annual General Meeting (the “Circular”) has been approved by the FCA and will shortly be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism, along with the Tender Form and the Form of Proxy in respect of the Annual General Meeting.
As noted in today’s earlier announcement and in the Circular, the implementation of the Tender Offer requires Shareholder approval at the Annual General Meeting. Greencore confirms that, as set out in the Notice of Annual General Meeting and in the Circular, the Tender Offer Resolution (being resolution number 7 in the Notice of Annual General Meeting) will be proposed as a special resolution and as such requires the approval of not less than 75% of the votes cast (whether in person or by proxy) at the Annual General Meeting.
The defined terms set out in Appendix II of this morning’s announcement have the same meaning herein, unless the context requires otherwise.
