Proposed Scheme of Reconstruction – update
Results of Scheme elections
Further to the Company’s announcement of 30 June detailing the terms of a proposed scheme of reconstruction (the “Scheme”) pursuant to which the Company would be placed into voluntary liquidation and Shareholders would have the option to receive cash and/or shares in BH Macro Limited in exchange for their shareholdings, the Board of BH Global Limited announces that final elections under the Scheme are (or, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Scheme, are deemed to be) as follows:
Elections for the Cash Option – 2,937,143 Sterling Shares
Elections for the BH Macro Shares Option – 17,517,300 Sterling Shares
US Dollar Shares
Elections for the Cash Option – 1,202,789 US Dollar Shares
Elections for the BH Macro Shares Option – 1,441,690 US Dollar Shares
Implementation of the Scheme remains conditional upon, inter alia, the passing of all the Resolutions at (a) the Sterling Shareholders’ Class Meeting; (b) the US Dollar Shareholders’ Class Meeting; and (c) the Extraordinary General Meeting and all conditions to such Resolutions (excluding any condition relating to the passing of any other Resolution) being fulfilled. Each of these Meetings is due to be held on 19 July 2021.
In the event that the Scheme does proceed, the number of BH Macro Shares to which the relevant electing Shareholders will be entitled will be calculated by reference to the NAV of the Company’s Shares and of BH Macro’s Shares as at the Calculation Date (being 31 July 2021). A further announcement will (if appropriate) be made in due course detailing entitlements for those Shareholders who have elected, or are deemed to have elected, for the BH Macro Shares Option.

Application has been made to the Financial Conduct Authority and to the London Stock Exchange for the listings and admissions to trading of the two classes of Shares to be cancelled with effect from 8.00 a.m. on 23 July 2021.

It is expected that the estimated NAVs as at 19 July will be announced to the market on or around 21 July.
Defined terms in this announcement have the meanings given to them in the Circular unless the context requires otherwise.
