Finalisation of Pax acquisition, Issue of Equity

 

Impax, the AIM listed specialist investor focused on a more sustainable economy, today announces the finalisation of its acquisition of Pax World Management LLC (now known as Impax Asset Management LLC). As agreed in the terms of the acquisition, which were announced on 18 September 2017, Impax has now acquired the remaining 16.7% of the New Hampshire-based business not previously held by the Company from members of the management team in cash and shares, for a total consideration, net of loans, of US$3.0 million.

 

In connection with this, Impax announces the issue and allotment of 181,467 ordinary shares of 1 pence each in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") to those members of the Impax Asset Management LLC management team that elected to receive Ordinary Shares for part or all of their consideration.

 

Contingent consideration payments of $270,000 will be made in cash later in February to the previous shareholders and management as relevant assets under management of the Pax World funds reached an average of US$5.52 billion over three measurement dates[1], growing to US$6.6 billion at 31 December 2020, up from $4.9 billion in January 2018.

 

Ian Simm, Chief Executive, commented:

 

"Since our acquisition of Pax World Management LLC three years ago, the combined team has successfully integrated the two businesses and delivered significant growth. Impax's business in North America is well placed for further expansion as clients seek to increase their exposure to the transition to a more sustainable economy."

 

EBT share issuance

 

Separately, Impax announces the issue and allotment of 2,000,000 Ordinary Shares to the Impax Asset Management Group Plc Employee Benefit Trust 2012 to satisfy awards made and to be made under the Company's employee share schemes.

 

Total voting rights

 

Application has been made to the London Stock Exchange for the 2,181,467 Ordinary Shares to be admitted to trading on AIM ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will occur at 8.00 a.m. on 16 February 2021. The Ordinary Shares will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares in the Company.

 

Following Admission, the Company's enlarged issued Ordinary Share Capital and total number of voting rights will be 132,596,554 Ordinary Shares. The Company does not hold any shares in treasury.  

 

The above figure of 132,596,554 may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in the Company under the FCA's Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules.
