Kofax® Limited (LSE: KFX), a leading provider of smart process applications for the business critical First Mile™ of customer interactions, is pleased to announce that its existing issued common share capital consisting of 94,819,418 common shares (“Kofax Shares”) is at 8:00 a.m. (London time) today being admitted to the premium listing segment of the Official List of the U.K. Listing Authority (“Admission”) and to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s main market for listed securities under the ticker “KFX.”

It is expected that the Kofax Shares, together with those to be issued pursuant to the U.S. Offering (the ‘U.S. Offering Shares’), will be listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market with effect from or shortly after the opening of trading on that exchange today. It is also expected that Admission of the U.S. Offering Shares and trading in the U.S. Offering Shares on the London Stock Exchange will take place at 8:00 a.m. (London time) on December 6, 2013.

Defined terms in this announcement have the same meaning as in the Scheme Circular and the Prospectus.

On October 4, 2013, Kofax plc (“Old Kofax”) announced proposals to change the corporate structure of the Kofax Group (the “Group”). The restructuring proposals (the ‘Proposals’) will create a new Group holding company which will be incorporated in Bermuda and will have a tax residency in the U.K. (“New Kofax”) and would maintain a premium listing on the London Stock Exchange and also list common (i.e., ordinary) shares on NASDAQ.

The Proposals have been implemented by means of a scheme of arrangement of Old Kofax under Part 26 of the Companies Act 2006 (the ‘Scheme’) and were approved by shareholders at a court meeting and a general meeting held on November 5, 2013. A circular setting out full details of the Proposals (the ‘Scheme Circular’) was sent to Old Kofax shareholders on October 4, 2013 and a prospectus (the ‘Prospectus’) in relation to New Kofax was published by New Kofax on November 28, 2013.

New Kofax has the same Board and executive management team as Old Kofax, and the New Kofax Group has the same business and operations following the Scheme becoming effective as the current Group. The Proposals will not result in any changes in the day-to-day operations of the business of the Group or its strategy. The Proposals are not expected to have any adverse implications for Kofax shareholders as a whole.

Kofax disclaims any intention or obligation to update any forward-looking statements as a result of developments occurring after the date of this announcement.
