Misys’ investors redeem shares

Software firm Misys said the majority of its shareholders had chosen to have their shares redeemed as part of a scheme to return to investors some of the proceeds from the sale of its stake in Allscripts-Misys. The company said 69.5 per cent of shareholders elected to have their “B” shares redeemed. Meanwhile, 23.3 per cent elected to take a single dividend of 38p. Misys is returning £145m to shareholders, equivalent to 38p per share, following the sale of its 55 per cent stake in healthcare IT company Allscripts for $1.2bn last year.
