ATIC Makes Bid to Acquire Chartered
The proposed acquisition will be effected by way of a scheme of arrangement under section 210 of the Companies Act of Singapore, subject to the approval of Chartered shareholders and the sanction of the High Court of Singapore. The transaction is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2009. Completion of the transaction will be subject to customary conditions, such as regulatory and shareholder approvals. Details can be found in the joint scheme announcement that has been filed with the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited (SGX), as well as in the scheme document to be sent to Chartered shareholders.
Under this scheme of arrangement, each Chartered ordinary share will be acquired by ATIC for a cash consideration of S$2.68 per share. The transaction represents an equity value of approximately S$2.5 billion (US$1.8 billion) and a total value of approximately S$5.6 billion (US$3.9 billion), including debt and convertible redeemable preference shares of approximately S$3.1 billion (US$2.2 billion) as of June 30, 2009. The price represents a premium of 14.2 percent to its 30 trading-day volume weighted average price, 26.8 percent to its 90 trading-day volume weighted average price and 44.2 percent to its 6-month volume weighted average price on the SGX. The estimated amount of consideration for each American Depositary Share ("ADSs") is US$18.641. The actual amount per ADS that ADS holders will receive will depend on the applicable prevailing exchange rate, less the amount of applicable ADS depositary's fees, taxes and expenses.
