Slaughter and May is advising Aggreko plc on the recommended cash acquisition of its entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital by Albion Acquisitions Limited, a newly formed company owned by funds managed by I Squared Capital Advisors (US) LLC and investment funds managed by TDR Capital LLP. The proposed acquisition was announced on 5 March 2021, following a previous announcement of a possible offer by the consortium on 5 February 2021.
Under the terms of the acquisition, each Aggreko shareholder will be entitled to receive 880 pence in cash for each Aggreko ordinary share held by them. This offer price will be reduced by the final dividend of 10 pence per Aggreko ordinary share (as announced by Aggreko on 1 March 2021 and subject to approval at Aggreko’s 2021 annual general meeting) to the extent that the dividend record date occurs before the effective date of the acquisition. The acquisition values the entire issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of Aggreko at approximately £2,322 million and is expected to complete in the summer of 2021, subject to receipt of customary shareholder, antitrust and foreign investment approvals.
