As a result, the entire issued and to-be-issued ordinary share capital of Paysafe Group is now owned by PI UK Bidco Ltd., a newly formed company jointly owned by the acquirers. Shareholders of record as of 6 p.m. London time Dec. 19 will receive 590 pence in cash for each eligible share held.
Paysafe shares will be delisted from the London Stock Exchange with effect from Dec. 21.
