COURT SANCTION, EXERCISE OF OPTIONS AND SUSPENSION OF TRADING ON AIM
On 20 May 2019, the boards of Tetra Tech and WYG announced that they had reached agreement on the terms of a recommended cash offer to be made by Tetra Tech for WYG pursuant to which Tetra Tech would acquire the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of WYG (the "Acquisition"). The Acquisition is being implemented by means of a scheme of arrangement under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006 (the "Scheme"). On 27 June 2019, WYG announced that the Scheme was approved by a majority in number of Scheme Shareholders, who voted and were entitled to vote, either in person or by proxy, and who together represented over 75 per cent. by by value of the votes cast.
WYG and Tetra Tech are pleased to announce that the Scheme was sanctioned by the Court earlier today. The Scheme will become effective upon the Court order being delivered to the Registrar of Companies, which is expected to take place on 9 July 2019.
Exercise of options and admission of shares to trading on AIM
Upon the Court sanction of the Scheme earlier today, options granted under the WYG Share Plans have become exercisable over up to 1,065,125 ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each ("Ordinary Shares") and have been exercised in respect of 489,460 Ordinary Shares. To satisfy these exercised Options, WYG will issue 463,953 new Ordinary Shares and the balance (25,507) will be satisfied by existing Ordinary Shares held by WYG's employee benefit trust. As a consequence, application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for 463,953 new Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective and dealings in such Ordinary Shares will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 8 July 2019.
Upon Admission, the Company's issued share capital will consist of 73,799,118 Ordinary Shares with one voting right each and 4,540,758 Convertible Shares. The Company does not hold any Ordinary Shares in treasury. The International Securities Identification Number for WYG Ordinary Shares is GB00B5N5WH70.
Suspension of Trading on AIM
Dealings in WYG Shares will be suspended from trading on AIM with effect from 7.30 a.m. on 9 July 2019. Subject to the Scheme becoming Effective, it is expected that the admission of WYG Shares to trading on AIM will be cancelled by no later than 7.00 a.m. on 10 July 2019.
