ORLANDO, Fla., October 19, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The LGL Group, Inc. (NYSE American: LGL) today announced the adjustment to the terms for its warrants, as a result of its M-tron Industries, Inc. spin-off. The adjustments are as follows:
LGL warrants exercise price is adjusted to $4.75 from $12.50 original before the Mtron spin-off
LGL warrants trigger price for potential acceleration of the exercise date is adjusted to $6.65 versus $17.50 before the spin-off
The LGL warrants are listed and traded under the NYSE American as LGL.WS and have the CUSIP number of "50186A 132"
Adjustment to LGL’s Outstanding Warrants:
The LGL warrants original exercise price of $12.50 is adjusted to $4.75, and the original warrant trigger price for potential acceleration of the exercise date of $17.50 is adjusted to $6.65. The adjustment for the previously announced Mtron spin-off is outlined below in "Warrant Adjustments".
LGL Group has approximately 5.25 million "European Style" warrants outstanding, exercisable at a 5 for 1 ratio into LGL shares only at the earlier of (i) the expiration of the warrant term, which is November 16, 2025, or (ii) subject to a date acceleration if triggered only after the average volume weighted average price ("VWAP") of LGL common stock for 30 consecutive trading days is greater than or equal to the acceleration trigger price.
The warrants are publicly listed on the NYSE American under the symbol LGL.WS.
LGL’s warrant agreement is found here:
Warrant Adjustments: Exercise Price Adjustment and Target Trigger Price for Potential Acceleration of Exercise Date
The previously announced distribution of Mtron shares is a qualifying dilutive event that requires an adjustment under Section 10 (c) of the warrant agreement, with the exercise price of the warrants and the trigger price for the potential acceleration of the exercise date for its warrants to be adjusted using the calculation provided within the warrant agreement, as follows:
EP1 = EP0 x MP0 / (FMV0 + MP0)
EP1 = the Exercise Price in effect immediately after the record date
EP0 = the Exercise Price in effect at the Close of Business on the record date ($12.50)
MP0 = the average VWAP per share of LGL from October 4th through October 17th
FMV0 = the average VWAP per share of MPTI from October 4th through October 17th (FMV0 must be adjusted to include the effect of the distribution ratio of one-half share of MPTI for one share of LGL)
The VWAP was derived from the when-issued trading for the period from October 4, 2022 through October 6, 2022 and from the regular way trading from October 7, 2022 through October 17, 2022.
The adjustment of the Exercise Price will be made immediately after the open of business on the day after the last day of the valuation period, which is October 18, 2022, but will be given effect as of the open of business on the Business Day immediately following the record date for any spin-off, which was October 3, 2022.
In accordance with the foregoing formula using the available market data from October 4 through October 17, the exercise price, originally set at $12.50, is adjusted to be $4.75, calculated as follows:
$4.75 = $12.50 x $4.9777 / (($16.2324 / 2) + $4.9777)
In accordance with the foregoing formula used for adjusting the exercise price, the target trigger price for potential acceleration of the exercise date, originally set at $17.50, is adjusted to be $6.65, calculated as follows:
$6.65 = $17.50 x $4.9777 / (($16.2324 / 2) + $4.9777)
The NYSE American is expected to announce these changes for the warrant price and the target trigger price for potential acceleration of the exercise date to the market directly.
