Accordingly, Trencor will repurchase a total of 143 157 Shares, representing 0,08% of the total issued share capital of the Company, for a total Offer Consideration of R4 621 107,96.
The total issued Shares of Trencor will accordingly be reduced from 173 677 833 to 173 534 676.
The requisite payments of Cash Consideration to qualifying Shareholders pursuant to the Offers will be made today, 11 November 2019.
This repurchase will result in Trencor’s shareholder base reducing by 1 236 shareholders (c.41%) and will benefit Trencor (and ultimately Textainer, post the implementation of the Unbundling) in reducing its on-going administration costs in relation to the large number of shareholders that would have held a relatively small shareholding in the respective companies.
