I am a shareholder and below are purely my opinions.
I feel this is not the end of the story yet. 

The offer price of $1.55 does not seem very attractive whether pre/during/post pandemic. This is the type of companies in the type of industry that would often get interest and offers. So many of these had been delisted (and relisted) from SGX in the past 10+ years.

I am not very experienced with schemes and this scheme of offering shares in an unlisted holdco is very fresh to me. Maybe it is to cater to staff shareholders (and Goi and Yarwood whom still wants to be in). I think almost all outside shareholders will not want to hold unlisted shares in sunningdale.

Para 3.4 Switch Option
3.4.1 Pursuant to the terms of the Implementation Agreement, in the event a Competing Offer (as defined below) or an intention to make a Competing Offer is announced whether or not such Competing Offer is pre-conditional), the Offeror shall have the right at its sole discretion to elect to proceed by way of a voluntary conditional cash offer or a preconditional voluntary cash offer made for or on behalf of the Offeror to acquire all the Sunningdale Shares on such terms and conditions to be set out in the offer document issued for or on behalf of the Offeror (the “Offer”) in lieu of proceeding with the Acquisition by way of the Scheme (the “Switch Option”), at any time prior to the date on which the Scheme Meeting (as defined in paragraph 7.1.1 below) is to be held.

The shareholding is very very fragmented. The offerer and undertaking shareholders don't have a significant stake (not even close to 50% of votes eligible). I have not done the maths. Just base on who had committed to vote for and who cannot vote, the % is not even close to hitting target.

Quarz who had been quite vocal on sunningdale previously and became a 5% holder recently hadn't spoken yet. Maybe busy with sabana but I am sure they will say something soon.

Hi Mushy, 

As you might have known, a scheme of arrangement is a all or none consequence type of offer to take out minorities in a takeover. Meaning, its either I get all the shares or none. As you have stated, the offeror and undertaking shareholders don't have a significant stake. It is exactly this reason why a scheme is used in this case because if they use the General Offer (aka GO) route, they will need 90% of the shares in order to compulsory acquire the remaining shares out there and delist the company. 

Just to recap, a scheme meeting is passed if more than 75% of the value of shares and 50% headcount approved the scheme at the meeting. 

As to your concern on cash or unlisted share option, again, this is not new method of consideration for a scheme. Maybe you could refer to the HMI case study last year where similar consideration was offered to minority shareholders when the company was taken out.
