Under the Improved Offer, Waterous is offering to purchase up to 57 million outstanding common shares of Osum (“Osum Shares”) at an offer price of $3.00 per share, which represents an increase to its initial offer to purchase up to 52.5 million Osum Shares and a 25% increase to the initial offer price of $2.40 per share.
The reasons for the withdrawal are set out in the notice of change to directors’ circular (the “Notice of Change”) that will be mailed to shareholders shortly and has been posted to the Company website at osumcorp.com/WaterousOffer.
All of the independent board members and members of the Osum executive team have entered into support agreements committing to tender their shares to the Improved Offer. However, Osum shareholders are encouraged to carefully consider the information contained in the Notice of Change and the WEF Notice of Variation and Change and make their own decisions regarding whether or not to accept the Improved Offer.
