DELAND, Fla., Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ARC Group Worldwide, Inc. (“ARC” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:ARCW), a leading global provider of advanced manufacturing and metal 3D printing solutions, today announced the effectiveness of its previously disclosed fully committed $10.0 million rights offering (the “Rights Offering”). The Company has also entered into Rights Offering backstop agreements with certain Company stockholders. The Company thus is highly confident it will raise an aggregate of $10.0 million in gross proceeds following the closing of the Rights Offering.
The Board of Directors has set the Rights Offering subscription price for the purchase of common stock, par value $.0005 per share (the “Common Stock”), at $2.00 per whole share (the “Purchase Price”). The rights and securities offered for subscription in the Rights Offering have been registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in a Registration Statement on Form S-1 which has been declared effective. The Company's final prospectus covering the Rights Offering was filed with the SEC on February 9, 2018. The Rights Offering will remain open until February 25, 2018. The Company will issue 5,000,000 shares of Common Stock pursuant to the Rights Offering.
The record date for eligibility to participate in the Rights Offering was set as February 6, 2018 (the “Record Date”). The Company will distribute to each stockholder of record as of the Record Date, at no charge, non-transferable subscription rights allocated proportionately to their respective percentage ownership of the Company. Each right will entitle the holder to purchase 0.273 shares of Common Stock. The Company will not issue fractional shares or cash in lieu of fractional shares in the Rights Offering. Any fractional shares resulting from the exercise of rights will be eliminated by rounding down to the nearest whole share.
Stockholders who exercise their basic subscription rights in full will be entitled to over-subscribe for additional shares of Common Stock at the same Purchase Price per share, subject to allocation among exercising stockholders in the manner described in the prospectus.
The Company intends to commence mailing on or about February 13, 2018 an offering subscription package, including a copy of the final prospectus and other additional materials related to the Rights Offering, to holders of Common Stock as of the Record Date.
