NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PAVmed Inc. (Nasdaq: PAVM, PAVMW) (the “Company”), a highly differentiated, multiproduct medical device company, today announced that it intends to temporarily reduce the exercise price of the Company’s outstanding Series W Warrants (Nasdaq: PAVMW, the “Warrants”) to $2.50 per share. The Company intends to file tender offer materials (the “Offer”) providing the holders of certain warrants the opportunity to exercise their warrants at the temporarily reduced cash exercise price.
Each of the Company’s outstanding Warrants is currently exercisable for one share of PAVmed Common Stock (the “Common Stock”) at an exercise price of $5.00 per share. Pursuant to the Offer, the Warrants will be temporarily exercisable at an exercise price of $2.50 per share, or 50% of the current exercise price. Specifically, each holder of Series W Warrants (the “Warrants”) will be entitled to receive one share of PAVmed Common Stock (the “Common Stock”) for each Warrant tendered along with $2.50 in cash. The company anticipates the Offer will be good for a period of 20 business days, but the Company may extend the offer at its sole discretion. In order to participate in the Offer and exercise Warrants at the reduced exercise price, the holders must tender the Warrants along with the requisite cash prior to the expiration of the Offer. Any Warrants not tendered in the Offer will revert to their original $5.00 exercise upon expiration of the Offer.
PAVmed is providing this opportunity to exercise warrants at a reduced price in order to encourage holders to exercise a meaningful portion of the outstanding Warrants, providing the Company with additional capital to advance its lead products, particularly its CarpX™ minimally invasive carpal tunnel syndrome device, through important near-term regulatory and commercialization milestones. The Company believes holders will find the Offer compelling given current market conditions.
In the coming days, the Company intends to file the Offer along with an amendment to the effective registration statement previously filed on Form S-1, which registered the shares of Common Stock underlying the Warrants.
The discussion of the proposed Offer contained in this press release is for informational purposes only and is neither an offer to buy nor a solicitation of an offer to sell securities. The Offer has not yet commenced. The Offer will be made only pursuant to a written offer and other related materials that are expected to be mailed to all holders of the Company’s Warrants shortly after commencement of the tender offer, at no expense to the holders. Holders of the Company’s outstanding Warrants should read those materials and the documents incorporated therein by reference carefully when they become available because they will contain important information, including the various terms and conditions of the tender offer. The Company will file a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO-I (the “Tender Offer Statement”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Tender Offer Statement, including the offer to exercise and other related materials, will also be available to warrant holders at no charge on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or from the Company. Holders of the Company’s Warrants are urged to read those materials carefully prior to making any decisions with respect to the tender offer.
