A2B (ASX: $A2B) finalizes property sale and enters acquisition agreement

A2B completes property sale and declares fully franked dividend


A2B Australia Limited (ASX: $A2B) has successfully completed the sale of its properties, raising $105 million, and declared a fully franked dividend of $0.60 per share, surpassing previous guidance. The company has entered into a Scheme Implementation Arrangement with ComfortDelGro Corporation Australia for a proposed acquisition at $1.45 per share in cash, excluding the $0.60 fully franked dividend. The cash offer price represents a 31% premium to A2B's 3-month volume weighted average share price. A2B's Board unanimously recommends the Scheme, subject to various customary conditions. The proposed transaction marks the culmination of A2B's 'Better Before Bigger' turnaround strategy adopted in July 2022.

The Scheme Implementation Arrangement with ComfortDelGro Corporation Australia represents a significant milestone for A2B. The proposed acquisition at $1.45 per share in cash, excluding the $0.60 fully franked dividend, reflects the value A2B has delivered to its shareholders. The Board's unanimous recommendation of the Scheme underscores our confidence in the proposed transaction. We believe this strategic move aligns with our 'Better Before Bigger' turnaround strategy and sets the stage for the next phase of growth and development for A2B.
