Caxton acquires CSI shares

Sep 28 2011 09:46
I-Net Bridge
Johannesburg - Media group Caxton and CTP Publishers and Printers [JSE:CAT) advised on Wednesday that it has reached agreement to acquire Caxton Share Investments Proprietary Limited (CSI) shares from Caxton Limited, a material shareholder in Caxton. 

Caxton would acquire 100% of the "A" ordinary shares and 27.2 million "B" ordinary shares (68%) in the issued share capital of CSI, it said.

During 2005 CSI was formed to facilitate the introduction of a share incentive scheme for Caxton and was approved by shareholders in a general meeting held on 4 November 2005.

That share scheme had now fulfilled its purpose and the directors of the seller and Caxton have resolved to unwind the structure in terms of which the share scheme was implemented.

The remaining 12.8 million "B" ordinary shares in CSI would be repurchased by CSI and would become a wholly owned subsidiary of Caxton.

Caxton would acquire the CSI shares with effect from 1 July 2011 for an amount of R136m, payable in cash.

The sole assets of CSI are 40 million ordinary shares in Caxton and the consideration for the CSI shares was based upon the market value of the underlying Caxton shares held by CSI, less R10 per share, representing the indebtedness of CSI to Caxton per underlying share held by CSI in Caxton.
