Country of Incorporation and Main Country of Operation

Marwyn Acquisition Company plc (formerly Wilmcote Holdings plc) was incorporated in Jersey under the Companies Law (Jersey) 1991, as amended, with a registration number 123424 and is registered as a UK establishment under registration number BR019423.

As Marwyn Acquisition Company plc is incorporated in Jersey, the rights of shareholders may be different from the rights of shareholders in a UK incorporated company.

The Company’s main country of operations is the UK.

Investment Policy

The investment objective of Marwyn Acquisition Company plc is to provide shareholders with attractive total returns achieved through capital appreciation. The Directors believe that opportunities exist to create significant value for shareholders through properly executed, acquisition-led growth strategies, in the industrials, manufacturing, engineering, construction, building products or support services sectors.

The Company may either seek to recruit sector-leading executive management in advance of an acquisition, or alternatively may consider identifying acquisition opportunities with impressive incumbent management teams that require a catalyst to unlock growth.

The Company will look to achieve its investment objective by taking an active approach to investments made within the following parameters:

  • Types of investment: It is anticipated that the Company will acquire controlling or non-controlling stakes in one or more businesses or companies (quoted or private) on a long-term basis. The investments made by the Company may be in the form of equity or other types of capital investment.
  • Geographic focus: The Company may invest globally, including emerging markets, however its principal focus will be on the UK, Europe and North America.
  • Sector focus: The Company intends to focus on the industrials, manufacturing, engineering, construction, building products or support services sectors. The Directors believe that opportunities exist to create value for shareholders through a properly executed, acquisition-led strategy in one of these sectors.
  • Target companies: The Company will target companies with either a well-established presence in their specific segments or companies which are in a position to become leaders in their specific segments, and which fit into the stated geographic and asset criteria guidelines.
  • Investment size: The Directors intend that initial funds raised will be used for the purposes of working capital and to undertake due diligence on potential target acquisitions. It is envisaged that the Company will make one or more acquisitions of controlling or non-controlling stakes, in businesses with an enterprise value generally expected to be up to £500 million.
  • Nature of returns: It is anticipated that returns to shareholders will be delivered primarily through an appreciation in the Company's share price.

Subject to the structure of the transaction, the Company may need to raise additional funds for an acquisition in the form of equity and/or debt. Depending on the composition of the Company's share register, it is possible that any equity fundraising for those purposes will, subject to the necessary shareholder approval, be carried out on a non-pre-emptive basis to allow for the diversification of the Company’s shareholder register and to obtain sufficient equity funding.
