23rd Apr 2024 18:27

(Alliance News) - Mitie Group PLC's third-largest shareholder is planning on selling over a third of its shares in the company, according to an announcement by Peel Hunt Ltd on Tuesday.

Alchemy Special Opportunities Fund IV LP, a London-based investment fund, has announced its intention to sell 25 million shares in Mitie.

Alchemy currently owns 71.0 million of the company's shares, corresponding to roughly 5.3% of its total share capital.

The price per placing share will be determined by way of an accelerated bookbuilding process to institutional investors, Mitie said, which commenced on Tuesday.

Mitie will receive no proceeds from the sale.

Shares in Mitie closed up 2.1% at 120.04 pence each in London on Tuesday.
