Hub24 Ltd (ASX: HUB) shares will be on watch this morning after the company updated the market late yesterday about its proposed takeover offer to Easton Investments Ltd (ASX: EAS). At Tuesday’s market close, the Hub24 share price finished the day 2% lower at $26.32.

Hub24’s tabled offer

The Hub24 share price could be on the move today after the company advised its takeover offer will expire soon. Hub24 updated the ASX about its intentions in the final hour of trade yesterday.

According to its release, Hub24 advised that it will not be extending its off-market takeover offer past 7:00 pm on 22 February 2021.

Last month, the company put forward its offer to Easton shareholders in a bid to acquire one out of every three ordinary shares. The cash consideration offered to Easton shareholders stood at $1.20 per Easton share.

Easton directors unanimously urged its shareholders to accept the takeover offer from Hub24, in the absence of a superior offer.

It’s worth noting that Hub24 currently holds a 29.3% interest in Easton. Each of Easton’s directors accepted the takeover offer, which represented 3,411,206 shares or 9.1% of all Easton shares.
