Great West Life Co Nil Par Value

Type:
Tender Offer
Shareholder action required:
Yes
Status:
Update Pending
Details (last updated 26 Mar 2019)

What is happening?

 

The Company has announced proposals for a Tender Offer to purchase up to CAD2 billion worth of Great West Life Co Shares. Great West Life Co holders may elect to tender some or all of their Shares for repurchase by the Company, at a ‘Purchase Price’ to be determined. The Purchase Price will be the lowest tender price per Share at which valid tenders are received in respect of an aggregate purchase price of up to CAD2 billion.

 

The Company is inviting Shareholders to tender (i.e. sell) some or all of their Shares at a minimum price which is not less than CAD30.00 or greater than CAD35.00 (in increments of CAD0.10, e.g. CAD30.00, CAD30.10, CAD30.20, CAD30.30, etc.). Shareholders can elect to tender Shares for sale at different prices or at the Purchase Price but all Shares successfully tendered will be purchased at the Purchase Price.

 

Any Shares tendered at a price higher than the Purchase Price will not be purchased under the Tender Offer; Shares tendered at a lower price than the Purchase Price will be purchased and satisfied in full. However, if Tender elections are received for more than the aggregate purchase price of up to CAD2 billion then Shareholders’ tenders at the eventual Purchase Price may be subject to scaling back.

 

Please also note that Shareholders with a holding of 99 Shares or less who tender their entire holding will have their instruction to tender treated preferentially under the offer.

 

What are my options?

 

Option 1 – Tender a number of Shares at a price between CAD30.00 and CAD35.00 (in increments of CAD0.10). In order to participate in this Tender Offer an election must be received in this office by noon on Wednesday 10 April 2019, at which point your tendered Shares will be removed from your portfolio. Any election must state the number of Shares you wish to tender and the price at which you wish to tender. If you do not state the price at which you wish to tender your Shares in the additional comments box when giving your election it will be assumed that you have elected to tender your Shares at the Purchase Price.

 

Option 2 - Tender a number of Shares at the Purchase Price. Shareholders can tender their Shares without specifying a price. Any election must state the number of Shares you wish to tender.

 

Option 3 – Take no action. Shareholders are not obliged to tender any number of Shares. If you do not return an instruction no Shares will be tendered on your behalf and your holding will remain unchanged.

 

All instructions must be received in this office by noon on Wednesday 10 April 2019.

Full details of this event will be sent to Qualifying Hargreaves Lansdown clients by either post or secure message. Please note that any instruction you give must be based on the full details provided in the letter and not on the summary information outlined above.

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'.
