CHICAGO, May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cision (NYSE: CISN) announced today the expiration and results of its previously announced exchange offer (the "Exchange Offer") and consent solicitation (the "Consent Solicitation") relating to certain of its outstanding warrants. The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation expired at 11:59 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time, on May 15, 2018.
Cision has been advised that 23,207,189 warrants (excluding 591,732 warrants tendered through guaranteed delivery), or approximately 94.7% of the outstanding warrants, were validly tendered and not validly withdrawn prior to the expiration of the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation. Cision expects to accept all validly tendered warrants for exchange and settlement on May 18, 2018.
In addition, pursuant to the Consent Solicitation, Cision received the approval of approximately 94.7% of the outstanding Warrants to amend (the "Warrant Amendment") the warrant agreement governing all of the warrants, which exceeds the majority of outstanding warrants required to effect the Warrant Amendment. Cision expects to execute the Warrant Amendment concurrently with the settlement of the Exchange Offer.
This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, the securities described herein and is also not a solicitation of the related consents. The exchange offer was made only pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Prospectus/Offer to Exchange and related letter of transmittal.
