Majorel publishes position statement on voluntary public cash and exchange offer for all shares in Majorel by Teleperformance SE, recommending to accept the offer
Luxembourg, 11 August 2023 – Today, Majorel Group Luxembourg S.A. (“Majorel”) (Euronext Amsterdam: MAJ) (ISIN LU2382956378) has published the position statement setting out the joint position of its management board and its supervisory board (together the "Boards") regarding the voluntary public cash and exchange offer (“Offer”) for all issued and outstanding shares in Majorel launched by Teleperformance SE (“TP”) today.
The Boards have conducted a thorough evaluation of the Offer since the initial announcement by TP on 26 April 2023 on the intended Offer. The Boards have engaged in a comprehensive process and have carefully considered the best strategic option for Majorel. During this process, which is described in the position statement, the Boards also obtained a fairness opinion from Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co. KG as its financial advisor in connection with the fairness opinion.
The Boards have reviewed the offer memorandum published by TP, the terms of the Offer as well as the fairness opinion, taking into account the interests of all its stakeholders, and concluded today, that the Offer is in the best interest of the Majorel group and promotes the sustainable success of its business. The Boards concluded today to support the Offer and to recommend to the shareholders to accept the Offer and to tender their shares pursuant to the Offer.
The members of the management board intend to accept the Offer. The members of the supervisory board do not directly hold any Majorel shares. Majorel’s major shareholders Bertelsmann Luxembourg S.à r.l. (“Bertelsmann”), Saham Customer Relationship Investments Limited and Saham Outsourcing Luxembourg S.à r.l. (together, “Saham”) already undertook in April vis-à-vis TP to tender their respective 39.5% shareholdings in Majorel, which they control. The chairman of the supervisory board who is affiliated with Saham abstained from voting on relevant decisions regarding the Offer and the position statement.
The position statement is available on Majorel’s website at the following link: https://www.majorel.com/voluntary-public-takeover-offer/
