Mowi ASA announces intention to launch voluntary offer for NTS ASA at NOK 110 per share

 I do not own anymore, sold a while ago.... maybe buy back in someday.
 
 

24 January 2022 – Mowi ASA is pleased to announce that it intends to launch an offer to acquire all of the shares of NTS ASA at NOK 110 per share, to be settled 50 % in cash and 50 % in shares issued in Mowi.

Mowi has followed the NTS Group for several years and is impressed by how the employees, management team and owners have developed the NTS Group into one of the leading producers of Atlantic salmon in Norway and Iceland. From a strong foundation in Central Norway, the NTS Group has grown into a fully integrated salmon farmer, producing 84 thousand GWT1 in production areas 7 to 12 in Norway and Iceland. The NTS Group also holds 7.7 development licenses in Arctic Offshore Farming, and the aqua service company Frøy ASA.

“NTS' geographical footprint and competent organisation fit unusually well with Mowi’s current operations and strategy. Together, we can maintain and create new jobs and further develop competence clusters along the Norwegian coastline, for the benefit of local communities”, says Ivan Vindheim, CEO of Mowi.

About the offer
The offer implies a total consideration for all of the shares of NTS of approximately NOK 13.8 billion. The offer price represents a premium of 18.3% over the closing price of the shares on 14 January 20222 of NOK 93.0 and a premium of 23.9% over the average volume weighted share price during the last 30 trading days up to and including 14 January 2022 of NOK 88.8. The value of the consideration shares shall be based on the volume-weighted average price of shares in Mowi last 20 trading days prior to the launch of the offer.

The complete details of the offer, including all terms and conditions, will, if launched, be described in an offer document to be sent to NTS' shareholders following review and approval by Oslo Stock Exchange. The offer will be subject to fulfilment or waiver by Mowi of (among other) the following conditions, and Mowi reserves the right not to launch the offer should it become clear that any of these will not be fulfilled or if other prescribed reasons apply:

(i) shareholders representing more than 50% of the share capital and voting rights of NTS on a fully diluted basis accept the offer, (ii) no material adverse change in the NTS Group has occurred, (iii) no legal action, court or other governmental, regulatory authority of competent jurisdiction or other third party shall have taken or threatened to take any form of legal action, relevant for the offer, (iv) no changes in the share capital of NTS or any distributions to the shareholders of NTS, has occured, (v) no material transactions involving the NTS Group, or any resolutions to merge or demerge NTS or any of its subsidiaries, or to acquire or sell any material assets of the NTS Group, nor transactions that will trigger the Norwegian Securities Trading Act section 6-1 (2), has occurred, and the acquisition by NRS of SalmoNor shall not be completed, (vi) NTS shall conduct its business in the ordinary course, (vii) no announcement shall have been made of any offer for the shares in NTS with a higher offer price than the offer price, and (viii) Mowi has conducted a confirmatory due diligence of the NTS Group.

The offer will not be subject to any conditions relating to the obtaining of any antitrust approvals.
