MoneyGram Determines Euronet Proposal Could Be Expected To Result In 'Superior'

MoneyGram International Inc. (MGI) said that its board has determined that the unsolicited proposal received on March 14, 2017 from Euronet Worldwide Inc. (EEFT) to acquire all of the outstanding shares of MoneyGram Common Stock and Preferred Stock for $15.20 per share in cash on an as-converted basis could reasonably be expected to result in a "Company Superior Proposal" as defined in MoneyGram's merger agreement with Ant Financial Services Group.

MoneyGram noted that the determination by its board of directors allows MoneyGram to take certain actions, in accordance with the procedures set forth in the merger agreement with Ant Financial, to further consider the Euronet Proposal, including engaging in discussions with Euronet subject to entry into of an Acceptable Confidentiality Agreement with Euronet pursuant to such merger agreement.

As previously announced on January 26, 2017, MoneyGram reached a definitive agreement with Ant Financial Services Group under which MoneyGram will merge with Ant Financial, with stockholders of MoneyGram being offered $13.25 per share in cash.

MoneyGram said it remains subject to the merger agreement with Ant Financial. The MoneyGram board of directors has not changed its recommendation in support of the merger agreement, nor is the MoneyGram board of directors making any recommendation with respect to the Euronet Proposal.

There can be no assurance that the board of directors will ultimately determine that the Euronet Proposal is a Company Superior Proposal, that the terms of any transaction will be the same as those reflected in the Euronet Proposal or that any transaction with Euronet will be agreed to or consummated.
