Under the provisions of Rule 8.3(b) of the Irish Takeover Rules, if any person is, or becomes, ‘interested’ (directly or indirectly) in 1% or more of any class of ‘relevant securities’ of Horizon (including by means of an option in respect of, or a derivative referenced to, any such ‘relevant securities’), that person must publicly disclose all ‘dealings’ in any ‘relevant securities’ of Horizon during the ‘offer period,’ by not later than 3:30 p.m. (E.T.) on the ‘business day’ following the date of the relevant transaction.
If two or more persons co-operate on the basis of any agreement either express or tacit, either oral or written, to acquire an ‘interest’ in ‘relevant securities’ of Horizon, they will be deemed to be a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3 of the Irish Takeover Rules.
A disclosure table, giving details of the companies in whose ‘relevant securities’ and ‘dealings’ should be disclosed can be found on the Irish Takeover Panel’s website at www.irishtakeoverpanel.ie.
‘Interests’ in securities arise, in summary, when a person has long economic exposure, whether conditional or absolute, to changes in the price of securities. In particular, a person will be treated as having an ‘interest’ by virtue of the ownership or control of securities, or by virtue of any option in respect of, or derivative referenced to, securities.
Terms in quotation marks are defined in the Irish Takeover Rules, which can be found on the Irish Takeover Panel’s website. If you are in any doubt as to whether or not you are required to disclose a ‘dealing’ under Rule 8, please consult the Irish Takeover Panel’s website at www.irishtakeoverpanel.ie or contact the Irish Takeover Panel at telephone number +353 1 678 9020.
