Scheme of Arrangement becomes effective

On 18 June 2021, the boards of Telit and Bidco, announced that they had reached an agreement on the terms of a recommended cash offer made by Bidco for the entire issued and to be issued and to be issued ordinary share capital of Telit by Bidco other than the Telit Shares held by funds managed by DBAY (the "Acquisition"), to be implemented by way of a Court-sanctioned scheme of arrangement under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006 (the "Scheme").

On 26 August 2021 Telit announced that the Court sanctioned the Scheme to effect the Acquisition. Telit is pleased to announce that the Scheme has now become Effective in accordance with its terms, following the delivery of the Court Order to the Registrar of Companies earlier today.

Under the terms of the Scheme, subject to any valid election for the Alternative Offer, holders of Scheme Shares on the register of members of Telit at the Scheme Record Time (6:00 p.m. (London time) on 27 August 2021) will be entitled to receive 229.5 pence for each Scheme Share held.

Suspension and cancellation of listing and trading

As the Scheme has now become Effective, Telit announces that Simon Duffy, Gil Sharon, Anthony Dixon, Marco Patuano, Harald Rosch and Yang Yuxiang have tendered their resignations as directors of Telit and will step down from the Board of Telit effective from today's date. Telit further announces that Michael Haxby and Julian Addison have consented to act as directors of Telit and will be appointed to the Board of Telit effective from today's date.
