(OTC: ATTUF), a leading provider of real-time event capture and data integration software, announced today the extension of the expiration date of its pending rights offering to 5:00 p.m., EST, on Friday, May 8, 2009. The extension is intended to allow additional time for shareholders who expressed interest in exercising their subscription rights.
Attunity has distributed to its shareholders of record as of April 6, 2009 subscription rights to purchase an aggregate of up to 10,000,000 ordinary shares for a subscription price of $0.12 per share. Each whole subscription right entitles the record holder to purchase one ordinary share at the subscription price of $0.12. Purchasers of ordinary shares in the rights offering will also receive, at no additional cost, a three-year warrant exercisable at $0.12 per share to purchase ordinary shares at a rate of one such warrant for each two shares purchased pursuant to the exercise of subscription rights.
The New Expiration Date
The rights offering, previously scheduled to expire on May 4, 2009, will now expire at 5:00 p.m., EST, on Friday, May 8, 2009, unless the Company further extends the exercise period. Shareholders who hold their shares through a broker, dealer or other nominee and wish to exercise their subscription rights may be required to do so an ample time prior to the expiration date and, therefore, are encouraged to contact such nominee to ensure timely exercise.
