(NASDAQ: ATCX) (“Atlas” or the “Company”), a leading provider of professional testing, inspection, engineering, environmental and consulting services, today announced that, in connection with the completion of its previously announced exchange offer (the “Exchange Offer”) and consent solicitation (the “Consent Solicitation”) relating to its outstanding warrants (the “warrants”) to purchase shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (the “common stock”) and the related amendment to the warrant agreement governing the warrants (the “Warrant Amendment”) that was executed on November 17, 2020, the Company plans to exercise its right, in accordance with the terms of the Warrant Amendment, to exchange all remaining untendered warrants at an exchange ratio of 0.1665 shares of common stock for each warrant. The Company has fixed the date for such exchange as December 3, 2020.
The Exchange Offer expired at midnight (end of day), Eastern Standard Time, on November 16, 2020. Based on the information provided by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the exchange agent for the Exchange Offer, a total of 19,759,386 public warrants and 3,750,000 private placement warrants were validly tendered and not withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation, representing approximately 98.80% of the outstanding public warrants and 100% of the outstanding private placement warrants.
