PRESS RELEASE

 

United Kingdom, 27 January 2020

 

Accelerated bookbuilt offering of approximately 8.5 million existing ordinary shares in IntegraFin Holdings plc

 

Michael Howard (the "Vendor") is selling approximately 8.5 million existing ordinary shares of IntegraFin Holdings plc ("IntegraFin" or the "Company") corresponding to approximately 2.6% of the outstanding ordinary share capital of the Company.  The sale will be undertaken via an accelerated bookbuilt offering to institutional investors (the "Offering").

 

The Offering is being undertaken, primarily, to enable Michael Howard to complete the funding for a charitable foundation and, residually, for diversification purposes. Michael Howard continues to be a director of the Company and his working relationship with the group is unchanged. IntegraFin will not receive any proceeds from the Offering.

 

Barclays Bank PLC ("Barclays") and Peel Hunt LLP ("Peel Hunt") are acting as Joint Global Coordinators and Bookrunners for the Offering and Evercore Partners International LLP ("Evercore") is acting as Financial Adviser to the Vendor.  Bookbuilding will commence immediately.  The right is reserved to close the books at any time.  The sale price of the shares and the final size of the Offering will be determined after the books have closed.

 

Following completion of the Offering, the Vendor will own approximately 8.9% of the outstanding ordinary share capital of the Company. This residual shareholding will be subject to a 180 day lock-up undertaking.
