Neles Corporation : - Final result of Alfa Laval's recommended public tender offer for all shares in Neles Alfa Laval will not complete the tender offer

11/04/2020 | 09:17am EST

As previously announced, Alfa Laval AB (publ) ('Alfa Laval' or the 'Offeror') and Neles Corporation ('Neles') have on 13 July 2020 entered into a combination agreement pursuant to which Alfa Laval has made a voluntary recommended public cash tender offer for all issued and outstanding shares in Neles (the 'Tender Offer').

The acceptance period under the Tender Offer commenced on 13 August 2020 at 9:30 a.m. (Finnish time) and expired on 30 October 2020 at 4:00 p.m. (Finnish time).

The Offeror has today published the following information:

'According to the final result of the Tender Offer, the shares validly tendered and not properly withdrawn in the Tender Offer represent, together with the total of 12,723,923 shares in Neles otherwise acquired by the Offeror prior to the date hereof, approximately 32.82 percent of all issued and outstanding shares and votes in Neles.

The completion of the Tender Offer is conditional on, among other conditions, the valid tender of shares representing, together with shares otherwise acquired by the Offeror, more than fifty percent (50%) of the issued and outstanding shares and votes in Neles. As the said condition has not been fulfilled, the Offeror has decided not to complete the Tender Offer.

Tom Erixon, President and CEO of Alfa Laval

'We regret that less than 50 % of the shareholders have decided to tender their shares. While the industrial logic and growth synergies between Neles and Alfa Laval represented a significant opportunity for both companies, we do not believe that Neles would be well served by having two large shareholders with conflicting strategic agendas for the long-term. For that reason, Alfa Laval has decided to withdraw the public tender offer. We now hope that Neles will find a different path to succeed in the global industrial flow control market.'

The transfer restrictions registered over the relevant book-entry accounts with respect to shares that have been validly tendered in the Tender Offer will be removed as soon as possible and approximately by 9 November 2020.'

Information for shareholders in the United States

Shareholders in the United States are advised that the shares in Neles are not listed on a U.S. securities exchange and that Neles is not subject to the periodic reporting requirements of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the 'Exchange Act'), and is not required to, and does not, file any reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the 'SEC') thereunder.

The Tender Offer will be made for the issued and outstanding shares in Neles, which is domiciled in Finland, and is subject to Finnish disclosure and procedural requirements. The Tender Offer is made in the United States pursuant to Section 14(e) and Regulation 14E under the Exchange Act, subject to exemptions provided by Rule 14d-1(d) under the Exchange act for a 'Tier II' tender offer, and otherwise in accordance with the disclosure and procedural requirements of Finnish law, including with respect to the Tender Offer timetable, settlement procedures, withdrawal, waiver of conditions and timing of payments, which are different from those of the United States. In particular, the financial information included in this stock exchange release has been prepared in accordance with applicable accounting standards in Finland, which may not be comparable to the financial statements or financial information of U.S. companies. The Tender Offer is made to Neles' shareholders resident in the United States on the same terms and conditions as those made to all other shareholders of Neles to whom an offer is made. Any information documents, including this stock exchange release, are being disseminated to U.S. shareholders on a basis comparable to the method that such documents are provided to Neles' other shareholders.

To the extent permissible under applicable law or regulations, Alfa Laval and its affiliates or its brokers and its brokers' affiliates (acting as agents for Alfa Laval or its affiliates, as applicable) may from time to time and during the pendency of the Tender Offer, and other than pursuant to the Tender Offer and combination, directly or indirectly, purchase or arrange to purchase, the shares in Neles or any securities that are convertible into, exchangeable for or exercisable for such shares. These purchases may occur either in the open market at prevailing prices or in private transactions at negotiated prices. To the extent information about such purchases or arrangements to purchase is made public in Finland, such information will be disclosed by means of a press release or other means reasonably calculated to inform U.S. shareholders of Neles of such information. In addition, the financial advisers to Alfa Laval may also engage in ordinary course trading activities in securities of Neles, which may include purchases or arrangements to purchase such securities. To the extent required in Finland, any information about such purchases will be made public in Finland in the manner required by Finnish law.

The receipt of cash pursuant to the Tender Offer by a U.S. holder of shares in Neles may be a taxable transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes and under applicable U.S. state and local, as well as foreign and other, tax laws. Each holder of shares in Neles is urged to consult its independent professional adviser immediately regarding the tax consequences of accepting the Tender Offer.

It may be difficult for Neles' shareholders to enforce their rights and any claims they may have arising under the U.S. federal securities laws, since Alfa Laval and Neles are located in non-U.S. jurisdictions, and some or all of their respective officers and directors may be residents of non-U.S. jurisdictions. Neles' shareholders may not be able to sue Alfa Laval or Neles or their respective officers or directors in a non-U.S. court for violations of the U.S. federal securities laws. It may be difficult to compel Alfa Laval and Neles and their respective affiliates to subject themselves to a U.S. court's judgment.
