The Company has received a draft revised commitment to make a conditional offer from Ata Resources on behalf of the Consortium. The Company has continued to engage with Ata and the Consortium in detailed discussions to improve, and further refine and reduce the conditionality of, the Binding Commitment and the Updated Draft Commitment, negotiate the terms and conditions of a transaction implementation agreement t and determine whether the Universal board of directors could recommend the Updated Proposal to Universal shareholders. The company has been unablel to reach agreement with Ata and the Consortium. The directors have determined that they are not able to make a recommendation in favour of the updated proposal at the current time. The Company acknowledges that it has received the NBIO from Afrimat. The NBIO proposes that Afrimat will acquire the entire issued share capital of the Company via a change of control transaction, the structure of which remains under consideration by Afrimat. Under the NBIO, Afrimat proposes to offer cash consideration of A$0.40 for each Universal share. The Directors recommend that Universal's shareholders and Universal CDI holders take no action and make no decisions in respect of the Updated Draft Commitment or the NBIO until the Directors have had an opportunity to further consider the NBIO.
