Impact of public warrant exchange, cancellation of private warrants and earnout shares waiver remove potential issuance of approximately 79 million additional ordinary shares
Measures underscore the Company’s commitment to proactive shareholder-friendly efforts
Super Group (SGHC) Limited (NYSE: SGHC) (“SGHC”, “Super Group” or the “Company”) today commented on the impact of the previously announced Company public warrant exchange, the cancellation of private warrants and earnout shares waiver, which jointly remove potential issuance of approximately 78.8 million Company ordinary shares, lowering the Company’s potential fully diluted share count by 13.6% to approximately 502.41 million.
Neal Menashe, Chief Executive Officer, and Richard Hasson, President and Chief Operating Officer, jointly stated, “Today’s efforts simplify our capital structure and reduce the prospect of potential future dilution. As a team, together with our sponsors, who agreed to cancel their private warrants, and our original shareholders, who waived their rights to earn-out shares, we remain committed to our long-term vision and to taking proactive steps to create value for investors and greater certainty around our capital structure.”
The Company has created a share count reconciliation accounting for (i) the public warrant exchange, (ii) the cancellation of private warrants, in each case including the post-offer exchange and cancellation to take place on December 26, 2022, as applicable and as previously announced (the “Post-Offer Exchange”), and (iii) the earnout shares waiver, which is available on Super Group’s Investor Relations website at investors.sghc.com.
