On 15 December 2017, Trilogy International Limited (Trilogy) announced that it had entered into an agreement with CITIC Capital China Partners III, L.P (CITIC Capital) under which it was proposed that a wholly-owned subsidiary of CITIC Capital would acquire 100% of the shares in Trilogy for $2.90 per share by way of a scheme of arrangement (the proposed scheme).
On 13 March 2018, Trilogy announced that CITIC Capital and the Business Bakery LP (the Business Bakery), a 31.2% shareholder in Trilogy, had entered into an agreement under which the Business Bakery agreed to pay a certain amount of transactional costs incurred by CITIC Capital in relation to the proposed scheme.
Shareholders voted to approve the proposed scheme on 14 March 2018.
