Ardagh Group S.A. : Announces Intent to Voluntarily Delist From the New York Stock Exchange Following the Completion of the Exchange Offer

09/27/2021 | 07:47am EST

LUXEMBOURG - Ardagh Group S.A. ('AGSA') (NYSE: ARD) announced that it has submitted written notice to the New York Stock Exchange (the 'NYSE') of its intention to voluntarily delist its Class A common shares (the 'AGSA Shares') from the NYSE following the completion of the previously announced exchange offer under which AGSA is offering to exchange each outstanding AGSA Shares for 2.5 shares of Ardagh Metal Packaging S.A. (NYSE: AMBP) ('AMPSA Shares').

As previously announced, unless earlier terminated or extended by AGSA, the exchange offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on October 5, 2021. If the exchange offer is completed on October 5, 2021, AGSA intends to file a Form 25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the 'SEC') on October 6, 2021 to delist the AGSA Shares and it is expected that the AGSA Shares will be suspended from trading on the NYSE on October 6, 2021, with the last day of trading of the AGSA Shares on the NYSE expected to be October 5, 2021. If the exchange offer is extended, then AGSA intends to file for delisting following such extended expiration date.

AGSA intends to file a Form 15 with the SEC following the delisting of the AGSA Shares in order to terminate the registration of AGSA Shares under Section 12(g) of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the 'Exchange Act'), which will result in the automatic suspension of AGSA's reporting obligations under Sections 13(a) and 15(d) of the Exchange Act.

AGSA is taking these steps in order to eliminate the inefficiencies resulting from both AGSA and AMPSA being publicly traded companies and having separate public reporting obligations. AGSA does not intend to arrange for listing or registration of the AGSA Shares on another national securities exchange or for quotation on a quotation medium.
