Republic Financial Holdings Limited - Notice of Potential Acquisition of Cayman National Corp Ltd. dd 06.08.18

Aug 06, 2018

Possible Partial Offer by Republic Financial Holdings Limited (“RFHL”) through its wholly owned subsidiary Republic Bank Trinidad and Tobago (Barbados) Limited (“RBTTBL”) for Cayman National Corporation Ltd. (“Cayman National”)

RFHL advises that it has entered into discussions with Cayman National, the parent of Cayman National Bank Ltd., for its potential acquisition through RFHL’s wholly owned subsidiary, RBTTBL, of at least 51% and up to 74.99% of the shareholding in Cayman National.

RFHL further wishes to advise that at this juncture, the assessment of this potential acquisition opportunity is in the embryonic stage as a due diligence exercise is presently ongoing and is subject to Board approval being granted. The terms of the possible offer contemplate an indicative price of between US$6.00 to $6.75 per Cayman National share; however no agreement for the purchase of Cayman National shareholding has been entered into by the parties.

After the requisite Board approval has been given, RFHL will inform shareholders when a definitive agreement has been entered into with Cayman National for the purchase of the shareholding. The consummation of the acquisition will also be subject to, among other things, the requisite regulatory approvals being obtained. In the interim shareholders are advised to TAKE NO ACTION in relation to this potential acquisition until there is further announcement confirming the execution of a definitive agreement.
