Following careful consideration, the Board of Serica, together with its financial advisers, unanimously rejected the Kistos Possible Offer on 1 June 2022, on the basis that the Board strongly believed it significantly undervalued the Company and its prospects and was not in the best interests of shareholders or other stakeholders. In response to this initial approach from Kistos and recognising the industrial logic of a combination implemented through an appropriate structure, Serica made a non-binding indicative cash and share offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of Kistos on 1 July 2022. On 8 July 2022 the Serica Possible Offer was rejected by the Board of Kistos. The announcement explains the rationale and concludes that Serica shareholders are strongly advised not to take any action.
