Vector will offer $3.40 for each fully paid ordinary NGC share, to be satisfied by: Issuing Vector shares having an aggregate issue price of $2.62; plus A cash payment of $0.78. Shareholders of NGC whose registered address on the NGC share register is not in New Zealand (overseas investor), will be offered cash.
