Nov 4 (Reuters) - Outsourcer Mitie Group said on Wednesday it would now issue fewer shares to buy rival Interserve’s support services arm, lowering the deal value to 190 million pounds ($274 million), while saying its board does not plan to declare an interim dividend.
The British company said it cut the share consideration by 31%, or 110 million shares, from the terms announced in June and that Mitie’s existing shareholders will now hold 82.5% of the combined group.
Separately, Mitie’s second-quarter revenue was up 12% sequentially. ($1 = 0.7702 pounds) (Reporting by Pushkala Aripaka in Bengaluru; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
