Scheme of Arrangement
On 13 July 2021, Youfoodz announced that it had entered into a Scheme Implementation Deed with HelloFresh to acquire 100% control of Youfoodz. The acquisition is proposed to be implemented via a members' scheme of arrangement (Scheme).
Further detail on the proposed Scheme is included in the Scheme Booklet that has been sent to shareholders, a copy of which is available here.
A guide on how to participate in the virtual Scheme meeting, which is to be held at 10.00 am (Sydney time) on 8 October 2021 to vote of the Scheme, is available here. Further detail is also available in the Scheme Booklet.
YOUR VOTE IS IMPORTANT
For the Scheme to proceed, it must be approved by the requisite majorities of the Youfoodz Shareholders at the Scheme Meeting. You should carefully read the Scheme Booklet in its entirety (including the Independent Expert's Report included in ANNEXURE A) before deciding whether to vote on the Scheme.
If you are registered as a Youfoodz Shareholder at 7.00 pm (Sydney time) on 6 October 2021, you will be entitled to vote on the Scheme.
Section 3 of the Scheme Booklet includes instructions on how you can vote.
It is important to note that if voting by proxy, for your voting instructions to be valid and counted towards the vote at the Scheme Meeting please ensure your online lodgement is received by no later than 10:00 am (Sydney time) on Wednesday 6 October 2021. Voting instructions received by proxy after this time will not be valid.
