NASSAU, Bahamas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OneSpaWorld Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: OSW), the pre-eminent global provider of health and wellness products and services onboard cruise ships and in destination resorts around the world, today announced that, based on preliminary voting results at today’s 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders, OneSpaWorld shareholders have approved the $75 million equity financing. More than two-thirds of the votes cast supported the private placement, which is expected to close on June 12. Shareholders also re-elected the three OneSpaWorld Board nominees.
Leonard Fluxman, Executive Chairman, said, “We are thrilled with this outcome and grateful to our shareholders who supported the Board and management team in their efforts to secure the best committed financing option available under the most dire of circumstances. Approval of this financing ensures that OneSpaWorld will remain compliant with our debt covenant as of June 30 and provides us with the certain liquidity necessary to sustain our operations for up to 24 months if current unprecedented conditions persist. We are now in a position to seamlessly ramp operations and focus the team on executing value-driving initiatives when our cruise line partners are permitted to resume sailing and our destination resort partners reopen.”
Once certified by the independent inspector of elections, the Company will file the voting results of the 2020 Annual Meeting on a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission to be made available on OneSpaWorld’s investor website at https://onespaworld.com/investor-relations/.
