In the meantime, Penguin International advised its shareholders to "exercise caution when dealing with their Shares and refrain from taking any action about their shares which may be prejudicial to their interests, until shareholders have considered the information and the recommendation of the independent directors, as well as the advice of the IFA, to be set out in the offeree circular and issued by the company in due course. If concerned about what action they should take, shareholders should consult their stockbroker, bank manager, solicitor, or other professional advisers."
