DEER PARK, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Surge Components, Inc. (“Surge” or the “Company”) (OTC Pink:SPRS), a leading supplier of capacitors, discrete semi-conductors and audible and sounding devices, announced today the preliminary results of its tender offer, which expired at 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on March 3, 2017.
Based on the preliminary count by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the depositary for the tender offer, a total of 6,160,799 shares of the Company’s common stock were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn, including 19,929 shares that were tendered through notice of guaranteed delivery. The number of shares conditionally tendered was 15,458 based on the preliminary count by the depositary.
Because the tender offer is oversubscribed by 1,160,799 shares, the Company expects to purchase only a prorated portion of the shares properly tendered by each tendering stockholder. The depositary has informed the Company that the preliminary proration factor for the tender offer is expected to be approximately 81.1% of the shares validly tendered and not validly withdrawn. The number of shares tendered and not validly withdrawn and the proration factor are preliminary and are subject to verification by the depositary and the proper delivery of all shares tendered (including shares tendered pursuant to the guaranteed delivery procedures). The final number of shares to be purchased in the tender offer and the final proration factor will be announced following the expiration of the guaranteed delivery period and the completion by the depositary of the confirmation process. Payment for the shares accepted for purchase pursuant to the tender offer, and the return of all other shares tendered and not purchased, will occur promptly thereafter. The shares expected to be acquired represent approximately 49% of the total number of shares of the Company’s common stock issued and outstanding as of February 2, 2017.
Morrow Sodali LLC acted as information agent for the tender offer and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acted as the depositary. All inquiries about the tender offer should be directed to Morrow Sodali LLC at (800) 662-5200 (banks and brokers can call collect at (203) 658-9400).
