LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$AGREE #2023_Annual_Meeting_of_Stockholders—Ault Alliance, Inc. (NYSE American: AULT), a diversified holding company (“we,” “us,” “our,” “Ault Alliance,” or the “Company”), today announced its postponement of the commencement of its planned exchange offer (the “Offer”) to accept for cancellation a minimum of 20 million shares of the Company’s common stock (“Common Stock”) and a maximum of 60 million such shares in exchange for the issuance of up to $15,000,000 aggregate liquidation preference of its 13.00% Series D Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Stock (“Series D Preferred Stock”).
As the Company did not obtain a quorum for, and had to adjourn, its 2023 Annual Meeting of Stockholders (the “Annual Meeting”), it has determined to postpone the planned commencement of the Offer in order to pursue the matters at the Annual Meeting and to avoid the administrative complications that could affect the Offer should certain matters at the Annual Meeting be approved.
The Company anticipates commencing the Offer in 2024, however there can be no assurance thereof. The Offer would be subject to regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions. Details regarding the Offer and instructions for stockholders interested in participating will be provided in the Offer to Exchange and related documents, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and distributed to Ault Alliance stockholders.
The Offer will not be made to any person in any jurisdiction in which either the Offer, or solicitation or sale thereof, is unlawful. Any Offer will be made only by means of the Offer to Exchange. It is anticipated that the Offer will be made pursuant to the exemption from registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, contained in Section 3(a)(9) thereof. Under that exemption, if Common Stock exchanged is freely tradeable, the Series D Preferred Stock received in exchange therefor will be freely tradeable. If the Common Stock is restricted, the Series D Preferred Stock will be restricted to the same degree.
This press release is for informational purposes only and shall not constitute an offer to sell or exchange nor the solicitation of an offer to buy the Series D Preferred Stock or any other securities. Any solicitation of offers to exchange Common Stock for the Series D Preferred Stock will only be made pursuant to an Offer to Exchange and related materials to be sent by the Company to its stockholders on the commencement of the proposed Offer. The Offer is not being made to any person in any jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation or sale is unlawful. Any offers of the Series D Preferred Stock will be made only by means of the Offer to Exchange. The Offer documents will be available without charge at the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website at http://www.sec.gov and will be delivered without charge to all stockholders of the Company who so request it.
