Diageo PLC – Possible partial tender offer for shares in SJF
Dated 25 June 2018
 
 
 25 June 2018
 
Possible partial tender offer for shares in Sichuan Shuijingfang Company Limited
 
Diageo has approached the Board of Directors of Sichuan Shuijingfang Company Limited ("SJF") with a proposal for a partial tender offer to increase its aggregate equity stake in SJF (through its wholly-owned subsidiaries) from approximately 39.71% to up to 60.0% at an offer price of RMB62 per share.
 
SJF has made an announcement in respect of such proposal on the website of the Shanghai Stock Exchange (http://www.sse.com.cn). An English translation of SJF's announcement is set out below.
 
The announcement today, of the proposal outlined above, does not constitute the announcement of an offer and creates no obligation on Diageo and/or any Diageo subsidiary to make an offer. Accordingly, shareholders in SJF have been advised that such proposal is still under discussion and there can be no certainty that any offer will be made.  Shareholders have been further advised to be aware of investment risks in SJF shares. Further developments will be communicated to shareholders in due course.

On 25 June 2018, Sichuan Shuijingfang Co., Ltd. (the "Company" or "SJF") received a written notification from its actual controller, Diageo plc ("Diageo"), stating that Diageo proposes to increase the percentage of its holding of SJF shares from 39.71% to up to 60.00% through a tender offer. 
 
The offeror entity for this tender offer (the "Offeror") is Grand Metropolitan International Holdings Limited, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Diageo, which indirectly holds 193,999,598 SJF shares, representing 39.71% of the total share capital of the Company.
 
I.        Basic plan of the Tender Offer
(I)       Name of the target company and shares to be acquired
1.         Name of the target company: Sichuan Shuijingfang Co., Ltd.
2.         Name of the stock of the target company: Shuijingfang
3.         Code of the stock of the target company: 600779
4.         Type of shares: RMB common shares
5.         The Offeror, which is an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Diageo, proposes to acquire up to 99,197,820 shares of Sichuan Shuijingfang Co., Ltd. through a tender offer, and there is no minimum share tendered acceptance condition.
6.         Percentage of the shares to be acquired in the total share capital of the target company: 20.29%
7.         Form of payment: Cash
8.         Tender offer price: RMB62.00 per share
9.         This tender offer will be a partial tender offer to be issued by the Offeror to SJF shareholders other than Sichuan Chengdu Shuijingfang Group Co., Ltd. and Diageo Highlands Holding B.V.  Upon the publication of the tender offer report, this tender offer will be subject to no other condition.
 
(II)      Tender offer price and its calculation basis
1.         Tender offer price: The tender offer price is RMB62.00 per share.
2.         Calculation basis
According to the Measures for Administration of Acquisition of Listed Companies (the "Acquisition Measures") and other relevant regulations, the tender offer price and its calculation basis are as follows:
(1)        The Offeror did not acquire any SJF shares in 6 months prior to the date of this indicative announcement of the tender offer.
(2)        The volume weighted daily average price of SJF shares in the 30 trading days prior to the date of this indicative announcement of the tender offer is RMB49.61 per share.  After taking into consideration the overall development and recent market price level in the industry, it is decided that the trading price of the tender offer is RMB62.00 per share, representing a 24.97% premium over the volume weighted daily average price of the shares in the 30 trading days prior to the date of the indicative announcement of the tender offer report, and a 22.63% premium over the closing price on 25 June 2018. 
(3)        The tender offer price of the Tender Offer is not lower than the maximum price paid by the Offeror for acquiring the same class of shares in 6 months prior to the date of the indicative announcement of the Tender Offer, or the volume weighted daily average price of the same class of shares in the 30 trading days prior to the date of the indicative announcement.  Therefore, the tender offer price complies with the requirements under the Acquisition Measures.
(III)     Total funding and source of funds
Based on the tender offer price of RMB62.00 per share, the maximum funding required for the Tender Offer shall be RMB6,145,924,840.00, all of which will be funded from the Offeror's own funds or self-raised funds.
II.       This tender offer is a partial tender offer, and the purpose of the tender offer is not to terminate the listing status of SJF.
 
III.      Risk alerts
This partial tender offer is still under discussion and there is no certainty that it will be made. The Company will continue to perform its information disclosure obligations in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. Investors are advised to be stay informed of further announcements that may be issued by the Company and be aware of investment risks.
 
The Company will diligently follow the development of these matters and promptly disclose relevant information in accordance with relevant regulations. The information disclosure platforms designated by the Company are the China Securities, the Shanghai Securities News, the Securities Times, the Securities Daily, and the website of the Shanghai Stock Exchange (www.sse.com.cn).  Please refer to the information in relation to the Company as published on these platforms.
