ATLANTA, April 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pensare Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: WRLS, WRLSU, WRLSW, WRLSR) (the “Company”) today announced that it intends to convene and then adjourn, without conducting any business, its special meeting of stockholders scheduled to occur at 11:00 a.m., Eastern time, on April 26, 2019, and reconvene at 11:00 a.m., Eastern time, on April 29, 2019, to vote on the proposals described in the proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on April 3, 2019. At the special meeting, stockholders of the Company will be asked to vote on a proposal to amend the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation to extend the date by which the Company has to consummate a business combination (the “Extension”) for an additional three months, from May 1, 2019 to August 1, 2019 (the “Charter Amendment”), and, if necessary, a proposal to direct the chairman of the special meeting to adjourn the special meeting to a later date or dates to permit further solicitation and vote of proxies if, based upon the tabulated vote at the time of the special meeting, there are not sufficient votes to approve the foregoing proposal (the “Adjournment Proposal”).
The special meeting will still be held at the offices of Greenberg Traurig, LLP, located at the MetLife Building, 200 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10166.
As previously announced, the Company’s sponsor has agreed to contribute to the Company as a loan $0.033 for each share of Pensare’s common stock issued in its initial public offering (each, a “Public Share”) that is not redeemed in connection with the stockholder vote to approve the Extension (the “Contribution”), for one additional calendar month (May 2019). If the Extension is implemented, the Company’s sponsor will make the Contribution on or before May 10, 2019, increasing the pro rata portion of the funds available in the trust account established in connection with the Company’s initial public offering (the “Trust Account”) in the event of the consummation of a business combination or liquidation from approximately $10.32 per Public Share to approximately $10.36 per Public Share.
The Company will announce no later than May 31, 2019 if the Company’s sponsor will make additional contributions to the Trust Account after that month. If the Company’s sponsor determines not to make additional contributions to the Trust Account, the Company will offer public stockholders the right to redeem their Public Shares for their pro rata portion of the funds then available in the Trust Account. In that case, the Company’s public announcement will provide instructions for public stockholders who wish to exercise their redemption rights, which will be substantially similar to the instructions applicable to stockholders who wish to exercise redemption rights in connection with the special meeting, with a deadline to submit redemption requests expected to be approximately ten business days following such announcement. Payments would be made to any stockholders who validly exercise their redemption rights promptly, and in any event within five business days, after the redemption deadline. If the Company’s sponsor determines to make additional contributions to the Trust Account after May 2019, in a per-share amount equal to $0.033 for each outstanding Public Share, then public stockholders will have no further redemption rights in connection with the Charter Amendment.
If you have not submitted a proxy for use at the special meeting, you are urged to do so promptly. No action is required by any stockholder who has previously delivered a proxy and who does not wish to revoke or change that proxy. Information about voting or revoking a proxy is included in the proxy statement filed by the Company with the SEC on April 3, 2019, which is available without charge on the SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov.
