Noventiq announces its intention to delist from the London Stock Exchange and Moscow Exchange
London, 22 June 2023 - Noventiq (LSE: NVIQ), a global digital transformation and cybersecurity solutions and services provider, today announces that it will shortly apply to the UK Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA") and London Stock Exchange plc ("LSE") to effect a cancellation of its listing of global depositary receipts ("GDRs") representing ordinary shares on the standard segment of the FCA's Official List and trading on the main market for listed securities of the LSE ("Main Market").
Further to the announcement by Noventiq on 4 May 2023 that it has entered into a business combination agreement with Corner Growth Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: COOL) ("Corner Growth") and the proposed listing of the combined company on Nasdaq, the Company has decided to request the voluntary cancellation of its GDR listing on the FCA's Official List and of its admission to trading on the LSE ("LSE Delisting"). The Company will, in due course, also apply to the Moscow Exchange ("MoEX") to de-list its GDRs from trading on MoEX ("MoEX Delisting"). Delisting on LSE and MoEX is a condition of the business combination with Corner Growth, and given the multiple trading venues involved, the Company has initiated the process now as a natural step to ensure the delistings are completed in a timely manner and do not impact completion of the business combination.
Pursuant to Listing Rule 5.2.8R, the Company is required to give at least 20 business days' notice of the intended cancellation of its listing on the LSE. It is anticipated that the LSE Delisting will be effective at 8:00 a.m. on 26 July 2023 (the "LSE Delisting Date"). Following the LSE Delisting, the Company will no longer be subject to the regulatory and statutory regime which applies to companies admitted to the standard segment of the Official List and traded on the Main Market.
The Company anticipates that the MoEX Delisting will be completed by early October. The Company will continue to update its shareholders and its GDR holders in connection with the MoEX Delisting and on the business combination with Corner Growth as necessary.
