NEW YORK, April 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pensare Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ: WRLS) (the “Company” or “Pensare”) previously announced that it will hold a special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) on April 26, 2019 at 11:00 a.m., local time, at the offices of Greenberg Traurig, LLP, located at the MetLife Building, 200 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10166 to vote on (i) a proposal to amend (the “Charter Amendment”) 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 “Extended Date”); and (ii) a proposal to direct the chairman of the Special Meeting to adjourn the Special Meeting to a later date or dates, if necessary, 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 Charter Amendment (the “Adjournment Proposal”).
The Company today announced that its 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). The amount of the Contribution will not bear interest and will be repayable by the Company to the Company’s sponsor upon consummation of the Company’s initial business combination. The Extension will allow the Company until the Extended Date to complete a business combination.
As of April 18, 2019, the Company had approximately $291.7 million in the trust account established in connection with the Company’s initial public offering (the “Trust Account”), or approximately $10.32 per Public Share.
The Contribution will increase the pro rata portion of the funds available in 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. If the Extension is implemented, the Company’s sponsor will make the Contribution on or before May 10, 2019.
The Company will announce in May 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 promptly offer public stockholders the right to redeem their shares for their pro rata portion of the funds then available in the Trust Account.
