Going Private. Yesterday, TAAL announced it had entered into an agreement with its largest shareholder, Calvin Ayre, for Mr. Ayre to take the Company private at a price of CAD$1.07/sh (about US$0.78/sh at the current exchange rate). The price represents about a 39.9% premium to the 10-day volume weighted average price. At first glance, the proposed price appears to be slightly below the average EV/S multiple of the crypto mining peer group, using our financial model, which has not been updated to include 3Q22 results as they have yet to be released.
Details. The transaction has unanimous approval by a Special Committee of independent directors and the full Board. A special shareholders meeting is scheduled for late December 2022. The transaction requires approval by two thirds of the votes cast by shareholders, excluding Mr. Ayre. Closing is expected shortly following the Special Meeting.
