Investview Announces Strategic Initiatives Including an Exchange Offer for Preferred Stock
Press Release | 10/08/2019
Eatontown, N.J., Oct. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Investview, Inc. (OTCQB: INVU) announced its plan to launch a tender offer to exchange shares of its outstanding Common Stock for newly-created shares of Investview’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.
As proposed, for every 500 outstanding shares of Common Stock, Investview plans to offer to exchange one share of Series A Preferred Stock, which has a liquidation value of $10.00 per share. The exchange ratio is subject to adjustment prior to the commencement of the Exchange Offer based on the then prevailing common stock price. As of October 2, 2019, the closing price of Investview’s common stock was $0.014 per share, and there were 2,697,876,966 shares of Common Stock outstanding. The Exchange Offer is expected to commence later in the month and will remain open for 20 business days.
In the proposed Exchange Offer, each share of Series A Preferred Stock would entitle its holder to:
(i) quarterly cumulative dividends at an annual rate of 12%, or $1.20 per share, payable in cash, in kind or in shares of Common Stock or Series A Preferred Stock, at Investview’s election, in priority as to dividends over the Common Stock,
(ii) a liquidation price of $10.00 per share, plus accumulated and unpaid dividends to the payment date in the case of a liquidation, dissolution or winding-up, before any payment or distribution is made to holders of Common Stock,
(iii) 500 votes per share, voting together with holders of the Common Stock as a single class upon all matters upon which stockholders are entitled to vote,
(iv) optional conversion by the holder at any time into 500 shares of Common Stock, and
(v) a right to participate pro rata, through December 31, 2021, with respect to issuances by Investview of any future equity or equity-linked securities, subject to certain exceptions.
In addition, Investview would have the right to (i) redeem all or part of the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock at a redemption price equal to 125% of the liquidation preference, or $12.50 per share, commencing one year after the date of issuance of the Series A Preferred Stock, and (ii) cause all outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be automatically converted into 500 shares of our Common Stock (or reflecting such final adjusted exchange ratio) at any time after the earlier of the date when the Common Stock commences trading on a national securities exchange or December 31, 2022.
There is no minimum tender condition or required tender of a specified number of shares of Common Stock in the Exchange Offer. However, the Exchange Offer would be subject to the conditions that, among others, there will be at least 300 holders of record of Investview’s Common Stock following the Exchange Offer and the Series A Preferred Stock being approved for market trading and quotation.
While Investview’s Board of Directors has authorized Investview to make the Exchange Offer, neither Investview nor its Board of Directors makes any recommendation to any stockholder as to whether to tender or refrain from tendering any shares of Common Stock. Investview has not authorized any person to make any such recommendation. Stockholders must decide whether to tender their shares and, if so, how many shares to tender. In doing so, stockholders should carefully evaluate all of the information included or incorporated by reference in the Exchange Offer documents (as they may be amended or supplemented), when available, before making any decision with respect to the Exchange Offer, and should consult their own broker or other financial and tax advisors.
Investview’s directors and executive officers and their respective affiliates are entitled to participate in the Exchange Offer on the same basis as all other stockholders. Chad Miller, Investview’s Chairman of the Board, Annette Raynor, Chief Executive Officer and a director, Mario Romano, Director of Finance, Jayme Lin McWidener, Chief Financial Officer, and Ryan Smith and Brian McMullen, directors, have indicated to us that they will be tendering all of their shares of Common Stock in the Exchange Offer. As of October 2, 2019, these individuals directly and indirectly through entities they control collectively owned 1,232,331,652 shares of Common Stock, representing approximately 45.7% of Investview’s outstanding shares of Common Stock. We are not aware of any other persons that have determined to participate in the Exchange Offer at this time.
“The Exchange Offer is the first of a series of strategic actions we are taking to establish a framework for long term appreciation of shareholder value,” said Mario Romano, Director of Finance.
Investview plans on scheduling an informational webinar for all those who have an interest in better understanding the Exchange Offer details. The details of the webinar will be publicly announced in the upcoming weeks.
