DUBLIN, Ireland and DALLAS, Nov. 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trintech Group Plc (Nasdaq:TTPA), a leading provider of integrated financial governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) solutions for commercial, financial and healthcare markets, announced that shareholders today voted in favour of the acquisition of Trintech by Cerasus II Limited (a company formed by Spectrum Equity Investors) by way of a scheme of arrangement. Trintech will now apply to the Irish High Court to set a date for the sanction hearing by the High Court. If, at that hearing, the High Court sanctions the Scheme without modification, it is expected that the Scheme will become effective shortly thereafter and the acquisition of Trintech by Cerasus II Limited will become effective. Further announcements will be made in due course.
The results of the resolutions put to the Court Meeting and the EGM held on 29 November 2010 were as follows:
Resolution to approve the Scheme of Arrangement:
Note 1: Where a Form of Proxy mandated that the vote be withheld, the proxy did not vote, and that member was not included as a member "present and voting" within the meaning of section 201(3) of the Companies Act 1963.
Note 2: Where a Form of Proxy allowed the Chairman discretion to vote, the Chairman exercised that discretion to vote in favour of the Scheme. The Chairman held Forms of Proxy allowing him discretion from 3 members holding in the aggregate 621 Ordinary Shares.
The total number of votes validly cast was 21,837,208; representing 64.5% of the Company's issued share capital at close of business on the day before the Court Meeting.
