Satisfaction of the FCA condition

 

On 12 March 2020, the Board of Moss Bros Group plc ("Moss Bros") and the Board of Brigadier Acquisition Company Limited ("Brigadier") announced that they had reached agreement on the terms of a recommended cash offer to be made by Brigadier for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Moss Bros (the "Offer").

 

On 29 April, Moss Bros announced that the scheme of arrangement to effect the Offer had been approved by the requisite majorities of Moss Bros shareholders.

 

The Board of Moss Bros announces that it was informed this afternoon that Brigadier had received change in control approval from the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA Approval") on 20 May. The receipt of FCA Approval satisfies a key condition of completion of the Offer.

 

Completion of the Offer remains subject to the satisfaction or, if applicable, waiver of the other Conditions set out in the Scheme Document, including the Court sanction of the Scheme.

 

The Company will provide a timetable update, including in relation to the Court hearing, subject to the conclusion of the proceedings in front of the Takeover Panel. The Offer is expected to complete in the second quarter of 2020.
