Wynyard Group Share Purchase Plan

Wynyard Group Share Purchase Plan

Auckland, 17 April 2014 – Wynyard Group Limited (Wynyard, NZX:WYN) announces the successful completion of its Share Purchase Plan, which opened on 31 March 2014 and closed on 16 April 2014 (SPP).

Following the successful completion of a NZ$30 million targeted placement of new shares to institutional and other qualified investors (Placement), Wynyard offered existing eligible shareholders the opportunity to subscribe for up to NZ$5 million of new shares through a SPP offer. Each eligible shareholder was given the opportunity to subscribe for Wynyard shares up to a maximum total value of NZ$15,000.

Wynyard received applications totalling NZ$6,560,000 from the SPP offer. As the SPP was over-subscribed, scaling as detailed in the SPP documentation will apply. The allotment of the shares to the 803 shareholders who participated in the SPP will be made on 23 April 2014 with refunds to shareholders due to scaling to be direct credited, or cheques mailed, in the week commencing 28 April. The shares will begin trading on the NZX Main Board on 24 April 2014.

Wynyard Chairman, Murray Horn, said “We are extremely pleased with the response shown by our shareholders. The fact that the SPP was over-subscribed is an endorsement of the business, and the company would like to acknowledge the support of our smaller shareholders. Capital raised from the Placement and SPP will allow the company to accelerate implementation of its growth strategy.”

The issue price for the SPP shares was $2.36, which was the lower of:
• $2.70, being the Placement price; and
• $2.36, being the average closing price of Wynyard shares traded on the NZX Main Board, calculated over the five business days prior to and including the closing date of the SPP (16 April 2014).
