Somers Limited – Update on sale of Bermuda Commercial Bank Limited

Hamilton, Bermuda – 20 March 2020 – In a filing with the Bermuda Stock Exchange (“BSX”), Somers Limited (“Somers”, the “Company” or the “Group”; Ticker: SOM.BH) issued an update on the sale of BCB.  The filing stated:

 

March 20, 2020

 

Somers Limited

(“Somers”)

 

Update on sale of Bermuda Commercial Bank Limited (“BCB”)

 

For Immediate Release - (Hamilton, Bermuda) Somers Limited (“Somers”), a financial services investment holding company, announces that further to the announcement on February 21, 2020, the completion of the sale of BCB to Permanent Capital Holdings Limited (“Permanent”) has been delayed.

 

With the recent extreme market volatility in global markets caused by the COVID-19 virus, Somers and Permanent have agreed that anticipated completion of the sale of BCB should be delayed until as soon as practicable, which could extend into the summer, when it is hoped that the global outlook will have improved and markets are more stable. Permanent has confirmed to Somers that they remain committed to completing the acquisition of BCB. Somers will update shareholders once there is further clarity on an anticipated date of completion of the transaction.
