PORTLAND, Ore., July 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Schmitt Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMIT) (the "Company" or "Schmitt") announced today that Schmitt's Board of Directors (the "Board") has unanimously passed a resolution for Schmitt to remain listed on the NASDAQ market.
In conjunction with the acquisition of the assets of Ample Hills Creamery, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, "Ample Hills"), and in consideration for a potential SEC rule that would make delisted companies highly illiquid, the Board has announced that it will remain listed on the NASDAQ markets.
To provide shareholders additional time to make an informed decision on the announced tender offer, the Board has approved an extension of the tender offer to July 20, 2020.
"We are thrilled with the Ample Hills acquisition as it is in line with our goal of identifying unique investment opportunities that will create shareholder value," said Michael Zapata, Schmitt's Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. "The Board has carefully evaluated all options and, although we are shifting our listing intentions, we believe remaining listed is the right decision and will benefit our shareholders in the long run."
Schmitt will provide a strategic update on Ample Hills in the coming months as we work with the team to relaunch and reopen Ample Hills.
