The proposed reorganisation will involve a capital reduction following which the Company will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of UPL Limited.

The rationales of the proposed reorganization are to:

  1. create distinct pure-play platforms to unleash growth potential of each independent platform led by specialized talent and combined with efficient deployment of resources;
  2. unlock value by facilitating fair value recognition of the platforms, each having varying growth prospects, profitability and capital intensity;
  3. enable efficient capital allocation for accelerated growth; and
  4. simplify the Issuer’s group structure by aligning operating business segments.

The Appleby team comprised of Malcolm Moller, Partner, Manisha Lallah, Counsel and Abdal Aumeer, Associate.

UPL Corporation Limited manufactures and markets crop protection and specialty chemicals worldwide.
