Takeover Panel

Novera Energy: Offer Timetabl

RNS Number : 6813C
Takeover Panel
18 November 2009


Novera Energy PLC


Infinis Energy LIMITED


Offer timetable extended

Rule 31.9 of the Code requires that the board of the offeree company should not, except with the consent of the Panel, announce any material new information after the 39th day following the publication of the initial offer document. Normally, therefore, the last day for the announcement by Novera of material new information in the context of the offer by Infinis would be Friday, 20 November. However, the decision whether or not to refer the offer by Infinis to the Competition Commission has yet to be announced.

In these circumstances, and in accordance with Note 3 on Rule 31.6, the Panel Executive has ruled that "Day 39" will be deemed to be the second day after the announcement of that decision.

"Day 46" (the last date for posting a revised offer) and "Day 60" (the date by which an offer must become or be declared unconditional as to acceptances) will also be extended by the same number of days. The next expiry date of the offer will not be affected by this extension.

Each of the parties has accepted this ruling.
