On Friday, Efanor announced the launch of the two takeover bids on the two listed companies in order to increase its participation in the two listed companies.
Efanor announced on Friday that its offer for Sonae Capital represented a premium of 46,8% compared to the closing on 30 July. In turn, in the case of Sonae Indústria, the offer implies a premium of 77% in relation to the July 30th price.
The success of these two operations will be conditioned to the acquisition of 90% of the capital in each of these companies.
"The effectiveness of the offer will be subject to the offeror [Efanor] holding, as a result of the takeover bid, more than 90% of the voting rights", according to Efanor.
The purpose of the operations is then to withdraw the companies from the Lisbon stock exchange.
