PME African Infrastructure Opportunities plc announces that the Resolution put to Shareholders at the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company held today was duly approved.


With Shareholders having approved the renewal of the authority for the Company to return capital to Shareholders via Tender Offers, the Current Tender Offer, which will return up to US$3.4 million to Shareholders through the purchase by the Company of up to 16,389,294 existing Ordinary Shares from Eligible Shareholders at a price of US$0.21 per Ordinary Share, will now proceed.  


The Current Tender Offer is made only to Eligible Shareholders on the Register on the Record Date and only in respect of up to 16,389,294 Ordinary Shares, representing 40.0 per  cent.  of  the  Ordinary  Shares  in  issue  at  the Record  Time.


Eligible Shareholders are entitled to have accepted in the Current Tender Offer valid tenders of up to a maximum of 40.0 per cent. of their holding of Ordinary Shares at the Record Time at the Tender Price, subject to the terms and conditions of the Current Tender Offer.


This represents 2 Ordinary Shares for every 5 Ordinary Shares held by the Eligible Shareholder at the Record Time.


In addition, Eligible Shareholders may tender Ordinary Shares in excess of their Basic Entitlement. Such Excess Applications will be satisfied (subject to scaling back as described in the Tender Offer Document) to the extent that  other Eligible Shareholder do not tender the full amount of their Basic Entitlements and to the extent that there are Overseas Shareholders in Restricted Territories who cannot participate in the Current Tender Offer.
