Scheme Meeting

On 28 June 2021 Mainstream announced that it had entered into a Scheme Implementation Deed with Apex in relation to the Scheme, under which, subject to the satisfaction of the Conditions, Apex will acquire all Mainstream Shares.


Mainstream Shareholders should read the Scheme Booklet carefully and in its entirety as it contains important information that Mainstream Shareholders should consider before they vote in relation to the Scheme. Mainstream Shareholders should also seek independent legal, financial, taxation or other professional advice before making an investment decision in relation to their Mainstream Shares.
