Rapid Nutrition plc: Reorganisation of Share Capital
London, United Kingdom - Dec. 9, 2022 – Rapid Nutrition PLC (Euronext Growth: ALRPD, OTCQB: RPNRF), a natural wellness company focused on organic wholefood-based nutrition and science-based herbal products, announces that a general meeting (the “General Meeting”) has been held at 7.00am AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) on 9 December 2022.
All resolutions as set out in the notice dated 21 November 2022 and put to the General Meeting were passed by the shareholders present in person or by proxy and represented at the meeting.
The purpose of the General Meeting was to consider certain ordinary and special resolutions (the “Resolutions”) to effect a reorganisation of Rapid Nutrition’s share capital (the “Reorganisation”).
The Reorganisation comprised a subdivision of each Existing Ordinary Share into one ordinary share of £0.0001 (“New Ordinary Share”) and one deferred share of £0.0099 (the “New Deferred Shares”). The New Deferred Shares will not carry any dividend or voting rights, and holders of New Deferred Shares will only be entitled to a payment on a return of capital on a winding up of the Company after each holder of New Ordinary Shares has received a payment of £1,000,000 in respect of each such share. The New Deferred Shares therefore have effectively no value.
The effective time of the Reorganisation is 7am (UK time) on 13 December 2022. Application has been made for the New Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on Euronext, and it is expected that admission will become effective at 7 a.m. on 13 December 2022. There will be 435,935,792 New Ordinary Shares in issue following completion of the Reorganisation. Each holder of New Ordinary Shares holds the same number of ordinary shares as was the case immediately prior to the Reorganisation. Therefore, each shareholder’s percentage interest in the Company’s issued ordinary share capital is unchanged. The New Ordinary Shares have the same rights and restrictions as those currently attached to the Existing Ordinary Shares under the existing articles of association. No new share certificates have been issued as part of the Reorganisation, and the validity of existing share certificates is unaffected.
The New Deferred Shares will not be traded on Euronext or any other market, and no share certificates will be issued in respect of the New Deferred Shares.
