A change of leadership and the Volaris takeover – Adapt IT CEO Tiffany Dunsdon

by Justin Rowe-Roberts
Sbu Shabalala’s successor Tiffany Dunsdon joined the BizNews team on Adapt IT’s results day. It’s been a rollercoaster of a year for Adapt IT, with the software business being the subject of a hostile takeover bid by the Huge Group and a friendly offer from Volaris. The Volaris cash offer of R7 per share looks a foregone conclusion with Adapt IT set to become another departure from the local bourse. Whilst all this has been happening, ex-CEO Sbu Shabalala resigned following allegations that he ordered an assault on his estranged wife’s partner.

Yesterday, shareholders adopted all resolutions set out in Adapt IT’s notice of general meeting with regards to the Volaris cash offer of R7 per Adapt IT share, including delisting from the JSE following the implementation of the transaction, if required.
