Walker Innovation Announces Dissolution Date and Initial Liquidating Distribution


Walker Innovation Inc. (WLKR) (“Walker Innovation” or the “Company”), announced today that it has filed a certificate of dissolution with the Delaware Secretary of State that will become effective September 20, 2018 and will close its stock transfer books and discontinue recording transfers of its common stock as of the close of business on that date.

The dissolution of the company was approved by its stockholders at a special meeting held on September 5, 2018. In connection with the dissolution, the Company’s Board of Directors has approved an initial liquidating distribution of $0.48 per share of the company’s common stock and Series B Convertible Preferred Stock. The distribution will be paid on or about September 27, 2018 to stockholders of record as of the effective date of the certificate of dissolution (including trades through the effective date that settle after the effective date).

Subject to uncertainties inherent in the winding up of its business, Walker Innovation may make one or more additional liquidating distributions, as the Company’s required contingency reserves may be released over time. However, no assurances can be made as to the ultimate amounts to be distributed, if any, or the timing of any such distributions. Any additional liquidating distributions will be made to the stockholders of record as of the effective date of the certificate of dissolution (including trades through the effective date that settle after the effective date).
