Conclusion of acquisition agreement
Shareholders are referred to the detailed cautionary announcement published on 28 May
2021 (the “Initial Announcement”), as well as the subsequent update announcements, the last
of which was published on 6 July 2021, relating to the proposed acquisition by Visual of Agilitee
SA from Agilitee Holdings Proprietary Limited (the “Seller”) (the “Acquisition”).
The board of directors of Visual is pleased to announce that Visual has concluded a formal
acquisition agreement (the “Acquisition Agreement”) with the Seller in respect of the
Acquisition in accordance with the salient terms detailed in the Initial Announcement. The
Acquisition will be undertaken on the basis of a share for share acquisition. The purchase
consideration will be settled by the issuing of 400 000 000 (four hundred million) ordinary no par
value shares in the share capital of Visual, credited as fully paid.
The effective date of the Acquisition is the date of fulfilment of the last of the conditions
precedent set out below.
The Acquisition Agreement contains legal warranties and indemnities which are considered
standard in respect of a transaction of this nature.
The net assets and profit attributable to the Acquisition will be disclosed in a further
announcement in due course.
The Acquisition is subject to the fulfilment or waiver (to the extent applicable) of the remaining
- the passing of Visual, the Seller and Agilitee SA directors’ and shareholders’ resolutions
approving the Acquisition;
- the approval of the JSE;
- the approval of the Takeover Regulation Panel;
- the waiver of a mandatory offer by the Seller to eligible Visual shareholders by the requisite
majority of the Seller’s shareholders in general meeting; and
- the receipt of an irrevocable undertaking by RAL Trust and CKR Trust to vote in favour of the
various resolutions to approve the Acquisition, including the waiver of a mandatory offer to
the extent necessary.
Shareholders are reminded that, in terms of the JSE Listings Requirements, the Acquisition is
classified as a Category 1 transaction for Visual, and accordingly requires approval by Visual
shareholders. Details of the Acquisition will be included in a circular (the “Circular”) which will
be distributed to Visual shareholders in due course.
The salient dates and times relating to the Acquisition will be published on SENS at the time of
posting the Circular. A profit forecast, reviewed by reporting accountants, will be included in
the Circular due to Agilitee SA still being a relatively new company.
As Agilitee SA is ultimately controlled by Mandla Lamba, a non-executive director of Visual,
the Acquisition will be a classified as a related party transaction as defined in the JSE Listings
Requirements. Accordingly, Mandla Lamba and his associates will be precluded from voting
on the Acquisition
Renewal of Cautionary announcement
The revenue recognition policy is being developed in accordance with IFRS. Once this is
finalised, the updated management accounts will be provided to Visual. Pending the
notification of the profit and net assets attributable to the Acquisition, as noted above,
shareholders are advised to continue to exercise caution when dealing in the Company’s
securities until a further announcement is made.
