NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--PAVmed Inc. (Nasdaq: PAVM, PAVMW), a highly differentiated, multi-product medical device company, today announced that it filed a registration statement on Form S-4 with the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the Company’s previously announced intention to effectuate a registered exchange offer (the “Exchange”) whereby PAVmed’s Common Stock will become exchangeable for units (the “New Units”).
Pursuant to the Exchange, each New Unit will be comprised of one share of Common Stock, identical to the currently outstanding Common Stock, and one newly-issued warrant (the “New Unit Warrant”). Each holder of Common Stock will be entitled to receive one New Unit for each share of Common Stock tendered. The Exchange will be available to all holders of the Company’s outstanding Common Stock. Holders of Common Stock may tender all, some, or none of their Common Stock. Any shares of Common Stock which are not tendered shall remain outstanding and unmodified.
The Exchange is being structured to reward current holders of our securities and to provide incentives for long-term ownership of our securities by both existing and new investors. There will be no cash or other consideration required to participate in the Exchange.
Each New Unit Warrant is exercisable for one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $6.00 per share. The New Unit Warrants are exercisable, subject to certain approvals required to satisfy Nasdaq regulations, any time after October 31, 2018 through April 30, 2024. At any time after April 30, 2019, the Company may, at its option, redeem all of the New Unit Warrants if the Common Stock trades at or above $18.00 per share, subject to certain other conditions.
The securities contained within the New Units shall become separately tradeable after one year from the closing of the Exchange. The Company may allow for separate trading of the securities contained within the New Units at an earlier date in its sole discretion.
The Company also announced today that it filed an information statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to an approval process required to satisfy a Nasdaq rule in connection with the Company’s previously announced private placement. The Company further announced today that it filed an amendment to its annual report to include certain additional information.
This press release is issued pursuant to Rule 135 of the Securities Act, is for informational purposes only and is neither an offer to exchange nor a solicitation of an offer to exchange any of the Company's securities. The offer to exchange will be made only pursuant to a Registration Statement on Form S-4, a Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO, which will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and an Offer Letter that will be mailed to holders of Common Stock eligible to be tendered in the Exchange. All of these documents will be available at no charge at the Securities and Exchange Commission's website at www.sec.gov. Holders of securities eligible to be tendered in the Exchange should read those materials and the documents incorporated therein by reference carefully because they will contain important information, including the various terms of, and conditions to, the Exchange.
