NEW YORK, Jan. 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pensare Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:WRLS) (the “Company” or “Pensare”) previously announced that it will hold a special meeting in lieu of the 2019 annual meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) on January 28, 2019 at 11:00 a.m., local time, at the offices of Greenberg Traurig, LLP, located at the MetLife Building, 200 Park Avenue, New York, New York 10166 to vote on (i) a proposal to amend (the “Charter Amendment”) the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation to extend the date by which the Company has to consummate a business combination (the “Extension”) for an additional three months, from February 1, 2019 to May 1, 2019 (the “Extended Date”); (ii) a proposal to re-elect (the “Director Proposal”) four directors to the Company’s board of directors, with each such director to serve until the second annual meeting of stockholders following the Special Meeting or until his successor is elected and qualified; and (iii) a proposal to ratify the selection by the Company’s Audit Committee of Marcum LLP to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019 (the “Auditor Proposal”).
The Company today announced that its sponsor has agreed to contribute to the Company as a loan $0.033 for each share of Pensare’s common stock issued in its initial public offering (each, a “Public Share”) that is not redeemed in connection with the stockholder vote to approve the Extension, for each calendar month, or portion thereof, that is needed by the Company to complete a business combination (the “Contribution”). The amount of the Contributions will not bear interest and will be repayable by the Company to the Company’s sponsor upon consummation of the Company’s initial business combination. The Extension will allow the Company until the Extended Date to complete a business combination.
As of January 15, 2019, the Company had approximately $315.9 million in the trust account established in connection with the Company’s initial public offering (the “Trust Account”), or approximately $10.17 per Public Share.
The Contribution will increase the pro rata portion of the funds available in the Trust Account in the event of the consummation of a business combination or liquidation from approximately $10.17 per Public Share to approximately $10.27 per Public Share, assuming the Company takes the entire time through May 1, 2019 to complete a business combination. If the Extension is implemented, the Company’s sponsor will make the first Contribution on or before February 10, 2019 and subsequent Contributions on or before the tenth of each subsequent month. If the Company’s sponsor determines not to continue extending for additional calendar months, its obligation to make additional Contributions will terminate and the Company will dissolve and liquidate in accordance with its amended and restated certificate of incorporation.
