Elliott Statement on ARYZTA
Elliott Advisors (UK) Limited (“Elliott” or “we”) notes the press speculation regarding a potential offer for ARYZTA AG (the “Company”) and issues the following clarification.
Elliott confirms that on Wednesday November 18th 2020 it made a proposal to the Board of Directors of the Company to potentially acquire all of the outstanding shares of ARYZTA AG for an indicative price of CHF 0.80 per share. This followed several months of work conducted with the support of the Company and its Board of Directors, both before and after the Extraordinary General Meeting on September 16th 2020. We also note press speculation regarding the financing for such an acquisition and the refinancing of the Company. We confirm that the financing of the potential offer is available and that refinancing arrangements for the Company’s existing debt are at a very advanced stage. We require the Board of Directors’ recommendation of our potential offer and the Company’s support to finalise our refinancing arrangements.
The public tender offer would be subject to customary offer conditions to be specified by Elliott. The information contained in this statement is neither an offer to purchase shares in ARYZTA AG nor a solicitation of an offer to sell ARYZTA AG shares or any other securities of ARYZTA AG nor does it constitute a public tender offer with respect to any ARYZTA AG shares or any other ARYZTA AG securities.
