MIAMI, March 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- International Money Express, Inc. (IMXI) (“Intermex” or the “Company”) today announced that it has commenced an Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation relating to its outstanding warrants.
The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation are being made pursuant to a Prospectus/Offer to Exchange dated March 28, 2019, and a Schedule TO dated March 28, 2019, which more fully set forth the terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation. A Registration Statement on Form S-4 containing the Prospectus/Offer to Exchange, and the Schedule TO, have each been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
Until 11:59 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time on April 25, 2019, Intermex is offering to holders of its warrants the opportunity to receive a combination of 0.201 shares of its common stock and $1.12 in cash, without interest, for each warrant tendered by the holder (the “Exchange Consideration”). Intermex is making this offer to:
- All holders of its publicly traded warrants to purchase its common stock, which were originally issued as warrants to purchase the common stock of the Company, formerly known as FinTech Acquisition Corp. II (“FinTech”), in connection with the initial public offering of FinTech’s securities on January 25, 2017 (the “FinTech IPO”), which entitle such warrant holders to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price of $11.50, subject to adjustments, referred to as the “Public Warrants.” Its Common Stock is listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) under the symbol “IMXI” and its Public Warrants are quoted on OTC Pink under the symbol “IMXIW.” As of March 25, 2019, 8,749,999 Public Warrants were outstanding; and
- All holders of certain of its warrants to purchase shares of common stock that were privately issued in connection with the FinTech IPO based on an exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), referred to as the “Private Warrants.” The Private Warrants entitle the holders to purchase one share of common stock for a purchase price of $11.50, subject to adjustments. The terms of the Private Warrants are identical to the Public Warrants, except that such Private Warrants are exercisable on a cashless basis and are not redeemable by the Company, in each case so long as they are still held by the initial holders or their permitted assigns. As of March 25, 2019, 210,000 Private Warrants were outstanding.
Concurrently with the Offer, Intermex is soliciting consents (the “Consent Solicitation”) from holders of the Warrants to amend the Warrant Agreement, dated as of January 19, 2017, which governs all of the Warrants to permit the Company to require that each outstanding Warrant be converted into a combination of 0.181 shares of its Common Stock and $1.00 in cash, without interest (the “Conversion Consideration”), which Conversion Consideration is a ratio that is approximately 10% less than the Exchange Consideration applicable to the Offer.
The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation will be open until 11:59 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, on April 25, 2019, or such later time and date to which Intermex may extend it, as described in the Prospectus/Offer to Exchange and the Schedule TO (the “Expiration Date”). Tendered Warrants may be withdrawn by holders at any time prior to the Expiration Date. Intermex’s obligation to complete the Offer is not conditioned on the receipt of a minimum number of Tendered Warrants.
Intermex has engaged Cowen as the Dealer Manager for the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation. Any questions or requests for assistance concerning the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation may be directed to Cowen at 833-297-2926. D.F. King & Co., Inc. has been appointed as Information Agent for the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation, and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company has been appointed as the Exchange Agent.
