“Accordingly, the Somers Board is convening a Special General Meeting of the Company to be held at 9.00 a.m. on 20 July 2022 at Richmond House, 12 Par-la-Ville Road, Hamilton HM08 to vote on the Offer. A shareholder circular and associated documentation will be sent to all shareholders on 11 July 2022. The Somers Board recommends that Somers’ shareholders vote in favour of the Offer.

“The Offer proposes that the Company merges with SNB, with the Company being the surviving company [the “Surviving Company”]. If the requisite number of shareholders vote in favour of the Offer, shareholders will receive $21.00 for each ordinary share of the Company that they own [which includes the interim dividend of US$0.24 per ordinary share declared on 19 May 2022].
