Open Offer of up to 12,901,200 shares

 

On 15 May 2018, the Company announced that it had conditionally raised £8.0 million (before expenses) by way of a Placing of 53,333,334 Placing Shares with certain investors at an issue price of 15 pence per Placing Share.

 

In order to provide Shareholders who were not able to take part in the Placing with an opportunity to invest, the Company is providing Shareholders (other than certain Overseas Shareholders) with the opportunity to subscribe for up to 12,901,200 Open Offer Shares, to raise up to £1.935 million (before expenses) for the Company, on the basis of one Open Offer Share for every ten existing Ordinary Shares held on the Record Date, at 15 pence per Open Offer Share. Shareholders subscribing for their full entitlement under the Open Offer may also request additional Open Offer Shares through the Excess Application Facility.

 

The Open Offer is conditional upon the following:

 

·     the passing, without amendment, of the Resolutions at the General Meeting;

·     Placing Admission taking place by 8.00 a.m. on 1 June 2018 (or such later time and/or date as is agreed by the Company and Zeus Capital, not being later than 8.00 a.m. on 30 June 2018); and

·     Admission taking place no later than 8.00 a.m. on 8 June 2018 (or such later time and/or date as may be specified by the Company, being no later than 8.00 a.m. on 30 June 2018).

 

If the conditions set out above are not satisfied or waived by the Company (where capable of waiver), the Open Offer will lapse.

 

The Placing is not conditional on the Open Offer proceeding or on any minimum take-up under the Open Offer.

 

Shareholder approval will be sought in respect of the authorities required to issue the Placing Shares and the Open Offer Shares at the General Meeting which is convened for 11.00 a.m. on 31 May 2018 at Addleshaw Goddard LLP, One St Peter's Square, Manchester, M2 3DE.

 

The Placing cannot proceed unless the Placing Resolutions are passed at the General Meeting. The authorities granted by the Open Offer Resolutions, if passed, cannot be used for any purpose other than in respect of the Open Offer.

 

Reasons for the Placing and the Open Offer

 

The Company is undertaking the Placing and the Open Offer in order to raise funds to continue to support the Group's programme of simplification, aid its recovery and provide more working capital. The proceeds of the Placing and the Open Offer will enable Accrol to continue delivering on its business recovery and support its plan of becoming the leading supplier of own-label paper-based products to discounters and grocery retailers.

 

Details of the Open Offer

 

Structure

 

The Directors have given careful consideration as to the structure of the Placing and the Open Offer and have concluded that they are the most suitable options available to the Company and its Shareholders at this time. The Board considers it important that Qualifying Shareholders have the opportunity to subscribe for Ordinary Shares at the same price as the Placing, and the Directors have concluded that the Open Offer is the most suitable means of achieving that.

 

The Open Offer provides an opportunity for all Qualifying Shareholders to subscribe for their respective Basic Entitlements and for Excess Shares under the Excess Application Facility, subject to availability.

 

Pursuant to the Open Offer, Qualifying Shareholders have the opportunity to subscribe for one Open Offer Share for every ten Existing Ordinary Shares held on the Record Date.

 

If fully subscribed, the Open Offer will raise gross proceeds of approximately £1.935 million (estimated net proceeds of circa £1.8 million).

 

The Issue Price represents a 38.14 per cent. discount to the Closing Price of 24.25 pence per Ordinary Share on the Latest Practicable Date.

 

Basic Entitlement

 

Qualifying Shareholders are invited, on and subject to the terms and conditions of the Open Offer, to apply for any number of Open Offer Shares (subject to the limit on the number of Excess Shares that can be applied for using the Excess Application Facility and subject to the Individual Shareholder Limit) at the Issue Price. Each Qualifying Shareholder has a Basic Entitlement of:

 

one Open Offer Share for every ten Existing Ordinary Shares

 

registered in the name of the Qualifying Shareholder on the Record Date.

 

Basic Entitlements under the Open Offer will be rounded down to the nearest whole number and any

fractional entitlements to Open Offer Shares will be disregarded in calculating Basic Entitlements and will be aggregated and made available to Qualifying Shareholders under the Excess Application Facility.

 

The aggregate number of Open Offer Shares available for subscription pursuant to the Open Offer will not exceed 12,901,200 New Ordinary Shares.

 

Allocations under the Open Offer

 

In the event that valid acceptances are not received in respect of all of the Open Offer Shares under the Open Offer, unallocated Open Offer Shares will be allotted to Qualifying Shareholders to meet any valid applications under the Excess Application Facility, subject always to the Individual Shareholder Limit.

 

Excess Application Facility

 

Subject to availability and assuming that a Qualifying Shareholder has accepted his Basic Entitlement in full, the Excess Application Facility enables a Qualifying Shareholder to apply for any whole number of Excess Shares in addition to his Basic Entitlement up to an amount equal to the total number of Open Offer Shares available under the Open Offer less an amount equal to a Qualifying Shareholder's Basic Entitlement, subject always to the Individual Shareholder Limit.

 

Excess Applications may be allocated in such manner as the Directors determine, in their absolute discretion, and no assurance can be given that applications by Qualifying Shareholders under the Excess Application Facility will be met in full or in part or at all.

 

Shareholders with less than ten Existing Ordinary Shares held at the Record Date will not be able to

participate in the Open Offer or make any application under the Excess Application Facility.

 

Application procedure under the Open Offer

 

The procedure for application and payment, are set out in the Open Offer Circular and, where relevant, on the Application Form.

 

Application for Admission

 

Application will be made to the London Stock Exchange for the Open Offer Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM. Admission is expected to take place, and dealings on AIM are expected to commence, at 8.00 a.m. on 8 June 2018 (or such later time and/or date as may be specified by the Company, being no later than 8.00 a.m. on 30 June 2018). No temporary document of title will be issued.

 

The New Ordinary Shares will, following Admission, rank pari passu in all respects with the Existing Ordinary Shares and the Placing Shares and will carry the right to receive all dividends and distributions declared, made or paid on or in respect of Ordinary Shares after Admission.

 

Important notice

 

The Open Offer is not a rights issue and that, unlike with a rights issue, any Open Offer Shares not applied for by Qualifying Shareholders under their Basic Entitlements will not be sold in the market on behalf of, or placed for the benefit of, Qualifying Shareholders who do not apply under the Open Offer, but may be allotted to Qualifying Shareholders to meet any valid applications under the Excess Application Facility and that the net proceeds will be retained for the benefit of the Company.

 

The Placing and the Open Offer are separate and distinct transactions involving the separate issue of, respectively, the Placing Shares and the Open Offer Shares.

 

Qualifying Shareholders are being invited to participate in the Open Offer and (subject to certain exceptions) will have received an Application Form with the Open Offer Circular.

 

In issuing the Open Offer Circular and structuring the Open Offer in this manner, the Company is relying on the exemption from issuing a prospectus in section 85(5) and paragraph 9 of Schedule 11A of FSMA and on paragraphs 43 and 60 of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Financial Promotion) Order 2005 (as amended).

 

Overseas Shareholders

 

Qualifying Shareholders who have registered addresses in or who are resident in, or who are citizens of, countries other than the UK (including, without limitation, the United States or any other Restricted Jurisdiction) should consult their professional advisers as to whether they require any governmental or other consents or need to observe any other formalities to enable them to take up their entitlements to the Open Offer.

 

General Meeting

 

The Directors do not currently have authority to allot all of the Placing Shares and Open Offer Shares and, accordingly, the Board is seeking approval of Shareholders to allot the Placing Shares and the Open Offer Shares at the General Meeting.

 

The General Meeting of the Company, notice of which is contained in the Placing Circular, is to be held at 11.00 a.m. on 31 May 2018 at Addleshaw Goddard LLP, One St Peter's Square, Manchester, M2 3DE. The General Meeting is being held for the purpose of considering and, if thought fit, passing the Resolutions in order to approve the authorities required to allot and issue the Placing Shares and the Open Offer Shares.

 

Further information regarding attendance and voting at the General Meeting is contained in the Placing Circular. If you do not have a copy of the Placing Circular and/or the Form of Proxy, please call the Registrar on 0371 664 0300.

 

Importance of voting

 

If Shareholder approval of the Placing Resolutions is not achieved, neither the Placing nor the Open Offer will proceed, and the Company is at risk of not being able to continue trading as a going concern. Under such circumstances, Shareholders could lose all or a substantial amount of the value of their investment in the Company. Accordingly, the Directors believe that the successful completion of the Placing represents the best option available to the Company and Shareholders.

 

If Shareholder approval of the Open Offer Resolutions is not achieved, the Open Offer will not proceed.

 

The Placing is not conditional on the Open Offer proceeding or any minimum subscription under the Open Offer being achieved.

 

Board recommendation

 

The Directors consider that the Placing, the Open Offer and the passing of all of the Resolutions are in the best interests of the Company and its Shareholders as a whole. Accordingly, the Directors unanimously recommend that Shareholders vote in favour of all of the Resolutions, as those Directors who are Shareholders intend to do in respect of their beneficial holdings of an aggregate of 590,168 Existing Ordinary Shares, representing approximately 0.46 per cent. of the Existing Ordinary Shares.

 

The Open Offer is conditional upon the Placing Admission taking place and the passing of all of the Resolutions at the General Meeting. Shareholders should be aware that if any Resolution is not passed at the General Meeting, the Open Offer will not proceed.
