CMA CGM will compulsorily acquire all remaining NOL shares at a price equal to the Offer Price of SGD1.30 as soon as practicable. Payment for NOL shares that are compulsorily acquired will be made in cash within 7 business days after the completion of the compulsory acquisition exercise, which is expected to take at least one month from its commencement.
Following the completion of the compulsory acquisition exercise, NOL will become a wholly owned subsidiary of CMA CGM. CMA CGM intends to delist NOL from the SGX-ST thereafter.
