ARNHEM, Netherlands–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Allego N.V. (NYSE: ALLG) (“Allego” or the “Company”) announced today the expiration and results of its previously announced exchange offer (the “Exchange Offer”) and consent solicitation (the “Consent Solicitation”) relating to its outstanding warrants to purchase ordinary shares of the Company, nominal value € 0.12 per share (the “Ordinary Shares”), which warrants trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “ALLG.WS” (the “Warrants”). The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation expired at Midnight (end of day), Eastern Time, on September 28, 2023.
Allego has been advised that 13,015,201 Warrants, or approximately 94.3% of the outstanding Warrants, were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation. Allego expects to accept all validly tendered warrants for exchange and settlement on or before October 3, 2023.
In addition, pursuant to the Consent Solicitation, the Company received the approval of approximately 94.3% of the outstanding Warrants to the amendment to the warrant agreement governing the warrants (the “Warrant Amendment”), which exceeds 50% of the outstanding Warrants required to effect the Warrant Amendment. The Warrant Amendment would permit the Company to require that each Warrant that is outstanding upon settlement of the Exchange Offer be converted into 0.207 Ordinary Shares, which is a ratio 10% less than the exchange ratio applicable to the Exchange Offer.
Allego expects to execute the Warrant Amendment concurrently with the settlement of the Exchange Offer, and thereafter, expects to exercise its right in accordance with the terms of the Warrant Amendment, to exchange all remaining untendered Warrants for shares of the Company’s Ordinary Shares, following which, no Warrants will remain outstanding.
The Company also announced that its Registration Statement on Form F-4 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) registering the Company’s Ordinary Shares issuable in the Exchange Offer was declared effective by the SEC on September 28, 2023.
BofA Securities, Inc. was the dealer manager for the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation.
