Worldline launches offer for Ingenico shares

Thursday 30 July 2020 12:34 CET | News

Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) has announced that the Worldline’s offer for Ingenico's shares and OCEANEs will open on July 30, 2020.

 

Its closing date will be set after receipt of supporting evidence of the European Commission's merger control clearance, it being specified that Worldline reserves the right to waive this condition (it is also recalled that the AMF declared the above-mentioned tender offer compliant on July 28, 2020). 

The offer for Ingenico OCEANEs includes an alternative between a mixed offer and a cash offer. This transaction would bring together two companies with a view to creating the world's fourth largest player in payment services by bringing together approximately 20,000 employees in 50 countries. Upon closing of the transaction, the newly combined group would offer leading payment services to nearly one million merchants and 1,200 financial institutions. 

The closing date of the offer will be set by the AMF after Worldline will have obtained the merger control clearance from the European Commission.
