Important Information for former shareholders of Mantra Group Limited (ASX:MTR)
On 23 May 2018, the Scheme of Arrangement between Mantra Group Limited and Mantra Shareholders became effective. Implementation of the Scheme on 31 May 2018 resulted in all Mantra Shares being acquired by AAPC Limited (a subsidiary of Accor S.A.) and Mantra Group Limited delisted from the Australian Securities Exchange on 1 June 2018.
Mantra Shareholders would have received a Total Cash Consideration of $3.96 for each Mantra Share they held, provided they were registered in the Register on both the Scheme Record Date and the Special Dividend Record Date (as defined in the Scheme Booklet distributed to Shareholders on 11 April 2018). The Total Cash Consideration of $3.96 is comprised of:
- a fully franked Special Dividend of $0.16 per Mantra Share paid on 30 May 2018; and
- the Scheme Consideration of $3.80 per Mantra Share paid on 31 May 2018.
