Liberum acts as intermediary on £140m Tender Offer by Zegona Communications plc
Zegona returned £140m to shareholders by way of a tender offer at a price of £2.00 per share.
The non-US tender offer was implemented by Liberum, acting as principal, acquiring the successfully tendered shares and a subsequent repurchase of the tendered shares from Liberum by the Company by way of an on-market transaction on the London Stock Exchange.
Zegona (the “Company”) was established in January 2015 with the objective of acquiring businesses in the European TMT sector with a “Buy-Fix-Sell” strategy to deliver attractive shareholder returns. Following Zegona’s sale of Telecable to Euskaltel in July 2017, the consideration for which included cash of €186.5m, the Company committed itself to return cash to shareholders quickly and tax efficiently.
