Result of General Meeting

 

Cancellation of admission to the Official List and to trading on London Stock Exchange's main market

 

 

H.R. Owen Plc ("H.R Owen" or the "Company") announces that, at the General Meeting held earlier today, the resolution to cancel the Company's admission to the Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities ("De-Listing") was duly passed.

 

The resolution was unanimously passed on a show of hands and the shares voted in favour by proxy and at the meeting were as follows:

Accordingly, De-listing is expected to become effective at 8.00 a.m. on Tuesday, 15 April 2014.

 

Offer from BPI

 

As set out in the circular to shareholders dated 19 February 2014, BPI is offering Qualifying Shareholders the opportunity to sell their Shares to BPI at 170 pence per Share, being the same price as the Increased Mandatory Cash Offer that BPI made on 12 September 2013 and which the H.R. Owen Board recommended at the time.

 

The BPI Offer remains open for acceptance to Qualifying Shareholders until 1.00 p.m. (London time) on 14 April 2014. Once the BPI Offer has closed and De-listing has occurred, the liquidity and marketability of Ordinary Shares will be significantly reduced and it is likely that there will be limited opportunities for Shareholders to realise their investments.

 

Capitalised terms used in this announcement have the same meanings given to them in the circular to shareholders published by the Company on 19 February 2014.
