Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) has increased its shareholding to 11.98% and will not accept the delisting proposal, i.e., the 95% or a lower 90% delisting threshold will not be met. The offer will not be increased as it is the final offer. The delisting likely fails (the closing date is tomorrow), and shares fall – the undisturbed price of PHP4.26 is -14.8% below the last close price.
