Transaction Type: Takeover (Partial)

Offeror: Montagu Investment Holdings Limited

Independent Adviser(s): Grant Samuel (Rule 21)

Offer commencement date: 5/01/2013

Offer closing date: 8/03/2013


On 5 January 2013, Montagu Investment Holdings Limited (Montagu) made a partial takeover offer for shares in Radius Properties Limited (Radius).

Key terms:

  • The offer price was (initially) $0.42 per Radius share.
  • The offer was conditional on Montagu receiving acceptances that would confer 50.001% of the voting rights in Radius to Montagu, when taken together with the Radius shares already held by Montagu.

During the offer period, Radius received an offer from Radius Residential Care Limited (RRC) to purchase all of the assets in Radius for $23.76 million (equivalent to $0.59 per share). Montagu subsequently increased its offer price to $0.56 per share and, as a result, it triggered several intra-bid lock-up agreements with Radius shareholders.

Radius held a shareholders meeting on 5 March 2013 to pass a special resolution to approve the RRC asset purchase offer. The resolution was not passed.

Montagu successfully completed its partial takeover for 50.001% of Radius on 8 March 2013.
