Liberty Telecoms Holdings, Inc. (LIB) Tender Offer
Aug 25, 2016
Please be advised that Liberty Telecoms Holdings, Inc. (LIB) has filed a Petition for Voluntary Delisting of LIB shares from the Philippine Stock Exchange, Inc. (PSE). As such, Vega Telecom, Inc. (the Bidder) is making a Tender Offer for up to 165,883,221 common shares in the capital stock of LIB held by the public or minority shareholders, representing approximately 12.82% of the issued and outstanding common stock of the Company.
Shareholders are reminded that should they decide not to tender their shares and the Company is subsequently delisted, they will remain stockholders of the Company; however, should they decide to sell their shares after the Company is delisted, such sale will be subject to capital gains tax and documentary stamp tax instead of the current stock transaction tax due on shares sold through the PSE. Shareholders are therefore encouraged to carefully consider their decisions.
