DALLAS and DUBLIN, Ireland, Nov. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trintech Group Plc (Nasdaq:TTPA), a leading global provider of integrated financial governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) software solutions, has confirmed that the dates for an EGM of the company and a High Court convened meeting of the company to consider a proposed acquisition of Trintech by Cerasus II Limited have now been set.
The EGM will take place at Bewley's Hotel, Central Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18, Ireland on 29 November 2010 at 11:30 hrs (Irish Standard Time). The EGM is being held to seek shareholder approval for the proposed acquisition. It is proposed that Trintech will reduce the issued share capital of the company by cancelling the existing shares and will then issue an equal number of new shares to the acquirer and/or its nominees.
In addition to the EGM, the plans for the proposed scheme of arrangement will require a High Court convened meeting of shareholders which will also take place on 29 November 2010 at the same address at 11:00 hrs (Irish Standard Time). The High Court convened meeting is required because the proposed acquisition is being effected by means of a scheme of arrangement under the Irish Companies Acts.
Shareholders and ADS holders will receive explanatory documentation relating to the scheme of arrangement, together with notice of the meetings, in due course.
Any enquiries relating to this press release should be directed to the Company's financial advisor at:
William Blair & Company
