The Redflex Holding Limited (ASX: RDF) share price is standing at the starting blocks today after the company released the results of its scheme meeting on a proposed acquisition.

Redflex shares are flat at 95 cents at the time of writing, after gaining more than 145% over the past 12 months.

Redflex designs and manufactures solutions for road congestion and safety, effective flow of traffic, ticketless parking systems, video surveillance, and back-office solutions.

Redflex’s takeover bid

Redflex shareholders voted today in favour of the company’s takeover by VM Consolidated, Inc, an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Verra Mobility Corporation. 

Redflex investors voted for the deal after Verra increased its offer from 92 cents to 96 cents for each Redflex share. While the deal still hangs on some regulatory approvals – including from the Saudi Arabian competition watchdog – Redflex expects to lodge paperwork with the ASX by 17 May.

The takeover bid was first announced in January, and 96 cents per share is a significant premium on the closing Redflex share price at any stage in the previous five years before the original offer.
