Transaction Overview

We are proposing to sell our telecommunications towers business to Cellnex UK Limited. In relation to this, we have undertaken a corporate reorganisation of the Senior Financing Group, by separating our telecoms towers business (“Tower Assets”) from our other businesses and consolidating the Tower Assets into an existing entity within the Senior Financing Group, Arqiva Services Limited (“ASL”) and certain subsidiaries of ASL.

On 8 October 2019, Arqiva Holdings Limited (“AHL”) entered into a share purchase agreement with Cellnex UK Limited and has agreed, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, to dispose of ASL and its subsidiaries at completion under the SPA (the “Disposal”). Any assets which are not Tower Assets will remain within the Senior Financing Group after the Disposal. One of the conditions to the Disposal under the share purchase agreement is the passing of a resolution by Arqiva’s secured creditors approving the Disposal; we have therefore launched a STID Proposal seeking this consent.
