Details (last updated 15 Aug 2022)

Nortonlifelock Inc has made an offer to buy Avast plc. The offer was delayed due to an investigation by the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). The CMA has provisionally concluded that the takeover is not expected to give rise to a substantial lessening of competition in the UK and as such a new timetable for the takeover has been announced.

 

The default terms of the offer are USD7.61 and 0.0302 of a Nortonlifelock Inc share for each Avast share. If you’re happy to receive this, you don’t need to do anything.

 

Elect for the majority stock option - Act by noon Thursday 8 September 2022

 

Instead of the default offer, you can elect to receive 0.1937 of a Nortonlifelock Inc share and USD2.37 in cash for each Avast plc share held. To do this please give an instruction below.

 

The shares will be credited to your Fund & Share Account around 13 September 2022 and the cash will be credited on or around 26 September 2022.

Broker forecasts

Due to changes in how we source investment data, Broker Forecasts are not available. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Recent trade data is unavailable. We will be replacing it, however in the meantime the information is available on the London Stock Exchange website.

Data policy - All information should be used for indicative purposes only. You should independently check data before making any investment decision. HL cannot guarantee that the data is accurate or complete, and accepts no responsibility for how it may be used. Prices provided by NBTrader. Charts provided by Factset. 'Broker forecast' and 'Recent trades' provided by MoneyAM. News and fundamental data provided by Digital Look.

The London Stock Exchange does not disclose whether a trade is a buy or a sell so this data is estimated based on the trade price received and the LSE-quoted mid-price at the point the trade is placed. It should only be considered an indication and not a recommendation.

Trades priced above the mid-price at the time the trade is placed are labelled as a buy; those priced below the mid-price are sells; and those priced close to the mid-price or declared late are labelled 'N/A'.
