NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CIS Acquisition Ltd. (NASDAQ: CISAA; CISAW) ("CIS") announced that effective September 29, 2014, (the “Effective Date”) CIS’s currently traded units (NASDAQ: CISAU), which were sold in its initial public offering, will cease to exist and be mandatorily separated into their component parts: one Class A Share of CIS, par value $.0001, and one warrant to purchase one ordinary share of CIS. On the Effective Date, all units will be automatically separated into their component parts and each unit holders’ account, in lieu of the units, will reflect ownership of the Class A Shares and warrants.
The separation is being taken in order to complete the liquidation and redemption of Class A Shares pursuant to CIS’s organizational documents. The liquidation of the Class A Shares and the distribution of the balance of funds held in its trust account follows the completion of CIS’s business combination with privately-held Delta Advanced Materials Limited ("Delta"). The transaction closed on Friday, September 19, 2014.
In accordance with the provisions of the trust account, holders of Class A Shares not converted to Class C Shares upon completion of the acquisition are each entitled to be redeemed for cash equal to the pro-rata portion of the trust account ($10.40 per share). A total of 3,500,000 Class A Shares are being redeemed upon liquidation of the trust account. The trust account was maintained at J.P. Morgan, with American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC as trustee. Inquiries regarding the liquidation and funds to be received may be directed to: American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC at 1-800-937-5449.
Following the separation of units and the liquidation of the non-converted Class A Shares, all remaining shares of CIS will be consolidated into a class of ordinary shares.
