NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PAVmed Inc. (Nasdaq: PAVM, PAVMW) (the “Company”), a highly differentiated, multiproduct medical device company, today announced it intends to file exchange offer materials (the “Exchange”) providing the holders of the Company’s outstanding Series W Warrants (Nasdaq: PAVMW, the “W Warrant”) with the opportunity to exchange 2 W Warrants for 1 Series Z Warrant (the “Z Warrant”).
Each of the Company’s outstanding W Warrants is currently exercisable for one share of Common Stock (the “Common Stock”) at an exercise price of $5.00 per share until January 29, 2022. All W Warrants are currently redeemable at the Company’s discretion if the Common Stock trades at or above $10.00 per share, subject to certain other conditions.
Each Z Warrant will be exercisable for one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $3.00 per share until April 30, 2024. After April 30, 2019, the Z Warrants will become redeemable at the Company’s discretion if the Common Stock trades at or above $9.00 per share, subject to certain other conditions. The Company intends to apply to have the Z Warrants listed to trade on Nasdaq.
The Z Warrants are identical to the warrants issuable pursuant to the Company’s recently announced rights offering, which will commence upon effectiveness of the applicable registration statement previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
As compared to the W Warrants, the Z Warrants provide holders a lower exercise price, an over two-year longer term and over one year of hard call protection.
Each holder of W Warrants will be entitled to receive 1 Z Warrant for every 2 W Warrants tendered. The Exchange will be available to all holders of the Company’s outstanding W Warrants. Holders of W Warrants may tender all, some, or none of their Warrants. Any W Warrants not tendered shall remain outstanding and unmodified. There will be no cash or other consideration required to participate in the Exchange.
The Exchange is designed to provide existing warrant holders enhanced value and streamline the Company’s capital structure. If all W Warrants are exchanged, the Company’s fully diluted shares of Common Stock will be reduced by 5,283,922.
Neither the Company nor its board of directors or officers makes any recommendations to W Warrant holders as to whether to tender or refrain from tendering their W Warrants in the Exchange. Each W Warrant holder must make his, her or its own decision as to whether to tender some or all of his, her or its W Warrants in the Exchange.
The discussion of the proposed Exchange 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 Exchange has not yet commenced. The Exchange 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 W Warrants shortly after commencement of the Exchange, at no expense to the holders. Holders of the Company’s outstanding W 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 Exchange. 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 written offer and other related materials, will also be available to holders of the W Warrants at no charge on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov or from the Company. Holders of the Company’s W Warrants are urged to read those materials carefully prior to making any decisions with respect to the Exchange.
