Checkit plc, a company specializing in augmented workflow and smart sensor automation, has launched a hostile bid to take over Crimson Tide plc. The proposed all-share deal values Crimson Tide at approximately £12 million, offering a 12% premium to its closing price on June 3rd. If successful, Crimson Tide shareholders would own about 30% of the combined entity. Checkit’s board believes the merger would create a larger, more attractive workflow software company. Despite previous rejections from Crimson Tide’s board, Checkit is seeking to engage directly with shareholders to discuss the potential benefits of the merger.
