Diageo PLC - Intention to increase stake in Guiness Nigeria
Dated 09 September 2015

Diageo intending to increase equity stake in Guinness Nigeria Plc
 
Diageo has approached the Board of Directors of Guinness Nigeria plc with an intention to make an offer to increase its equity stake in Guinness Nigeria from 54.3% up to a maximum of 70% and to maintain Guinness Nigeria's listing on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. As announced today, Guinness Nigeria has notified the Nigerian Stock Exchange of Diageo's approach.
 
Subject to receiving regulatory approval and if Diageo decides to proceed with the proposed transaction, it is intended that Diageo, through its wholly owned subsidiary Guinness Overseas Limited, will launch a partial tender offer at a price not higher than NGN 175 per share in cash, giving all shareholders the opportunity to elect to sell some or all of their shares in Guinness Nigeria.
 
At the maximum offer price of NGN 175 per share, the proposed offer would represent a premium of 36 per cent to the 30-day volume weighted average share price and 40 per cent to Guinness Nigeria's closing share price on 8 September 2015. Guinness Nigeria currently has 1,505,888,188 ordinaryshares in issue.
 
Guinness Overseas may also seek to acquire shares in the market at a price not higher than the offer price of NGN 175 per share. Diageo would encourage those shareholders that wish to divest their holdings in Guinness Nigeria to make contact with Stanbic IBTC Stockbrokers Limited.
 
The announcement today of Guinness Overseas' intention to make an offer does not constitute the announcement of an offer and creates no obligation on Guinness Overseas or Diageo to make an offer. Accordingly, shareholders in Guinness Nigeria are advised that there can be no certainty that any offer will be made, nor as to the price or terms of any offer that may be made. Further developments will be communicated to shareholders in due course. Accordingly, Guinness Nigeria shareholders are advised to exercise caution in dealing in Guinness Nigeria shares until further information is provided.
 
The proposed partial tender offer will be subject to requisite regulatory approvals, including those of the Nigerian Stock Exchange and the Nigerian Securities and Exchange Commission. The formal offer documentation will be posted to shareholders as soon as these approvals are obtained.
