AGA Rangemaster says receives approach for possible offer from Whirlpool AGA Rangemaster announces that it has received an approach regarding a possible cash offer for the company from Whirlpool Corporation. The announcement of a firm offer by Whirlpool is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions including due diligence. In accordance with its obligations under the UK Takeover Code, the company has granted due diligence access to Whirlpool and is in discussions with Whirlpool regarding other aspects of the Possible Offer. Given the conditionality of the Whirlpool offer, the Board of AGA believes it is in the best interests of AGA Shareholders, taken as a whole, to ensure that the Middleby Transaction continues to be executed on the current timetable to avoid any delay to completion of that transaction should a firm offer from Whirlpool not be forthcoming. Accordingly, the Board of AGA continues to recommend the offer made by Middleby to AGA Shareholders.
