A closer look at the transaction 

Transaction highlights include Advent acquiring all issued subordinate voting shares of Nuvei at USD 34.00 per share in cash, representing a premium to the company's recent trading prices. Specifically, this price represents a premium of approximately 56% to the closing price of the Subordinate Voting Shares on the Nasdaq Global Select Market on 15 March 2024, the last trading day prior to media reports concerning a potential transaction involving the company, and a premium of approximately 48% to the 90-day volume weighted average trading price per Subordinate Voting Share as of such date. 

Majority shareholders, including Philip Fayer, Novacap, and CDPQ, have agreed to retain a portion of their shares post-transaction, collectively owning approximately 54% of the resulting private company. The proposed transaction has garnered support from holders of multiple voting shares, representing approximately 92% of the total voting power. Nuvei's Board of Directors, advised by independent counsel, unanimously recommends shareholder approval of the transaction, subject to regulatory and shareholder approvals. 

The transaction, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals, is expected to close in late 2024 or the first quarter of 2025. Following completion, Nuvei's subordinate voting shares will be delisted from stock exchanges, and the company will deregister with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
