For Immediate Release

04 December 2019



 

 

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS NOT FOR RELEASE, DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN, INTO OR WITHIN AUSTRALIA, CANADA, JAPAN, JERSEY, THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA, NEW ZEALAND OR THE UNITED STATES OR IN TO ANY OTHER JURISDICTION WHERE SUCH AN ANNOUNCEMENT WOULD BE UNLAWFUL. FURTHER, THIS ANNOUNCEMENT IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY AND SHALL NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER TO SELL, OR THE SOLICITATION OF AN OFFER TO BUY, SUBSCRIBE FOR OR OTHERWISE ACQUIRE, ANY SHARES OR OTHER SECURITIES OF BOOHOO GROUP PLC IN JERSEY OR ANY JURISDICTION IN WHICH ANY SUCH OFFER OR SOLICITATION WOULD BE UNLAWFUL. PLEASE SEE THE IMPORTANT NOTICE AT THE END OF THIS ANNOUNCEMENT.

 

 

Proposed secondary placing of ordinary shares in boohoo group plc

 

 

Zeus Capital Limited ("Zeus Capital") and Jefferies International Limited ("Jefferies") (together, the "Joint Global Co-Ordinators") announce that they have been advised by Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane (the "Selling Shareholders") that they intend to sell up to 35,000,000 and 15,000,000 ordinary shares respectively  (the "Placing Shares") in boohoo group plc ("boohoo", or the "Company") (AIM: BOO). Mahmud Kamani is the Group Co-Founder and Group Executive Chairman of boohoo, and Carol Kane is the Group Co-Founder and Executive Director of boohoo. The Placing Shares will be sold via an accelerated bookbuild placing to institutional investors (the "Placing").

 

Zeus Capital and Jefferies, each acting as joint global co-ordinator and bookrunner, have entered into a block trade agreement ("Block Trade Agreement") with the Selling Shareholders. Boohoo is not a party to the Block Trade Agreement and will not receive any proceeds from the Placing.

 

The Placing Shares represent up to c. 4.3 per cent. of the issued share capital of boohoo.

 

Assuming that all of the Placing Shares are sold, the Selling Shareholders would continue to have an interest (in aggregate) in 184,010,301 ordinary shares in the Company, representing approximately 15.8 per cent. of the Company's issued share capital, as per the table below:

 50,000,000

The final number of Placing Shares to be placed and the price at which the Placing Shares are to be placed will be agreed by Zeus Capital, Jefferies and the Selling Shareholders at the close of the bookbuild process, and the results of the Placing will be announced as soon as practicable thereafter. The timing for the close of the bookbuild process will be at the absolute discretion of the Joint Global Co-ordinators.

 

Assuming the Placing Shares are in aggregate 50 million ordinary shares,  the Selling Shareholders have agreed that, following completion of the Placing, they will not, without the Company's and Joint Global Co-ordinators' prior written consent, dispose of further ordinary shares in the Company for a period of 18 months (subject to certain customary exceptions).

 

The books for the Placing will open with immediate effect.
