|Navios Maritime Acquisition Corporation and Navios Maritime Midstream Partners L.P. Announce Preliminary Election Results|
As announced on
Pursuant to the definitive acquisition agreement, holders of approximately 75.1% of the publicly held Navios Midstream units (6,586,779 Navios Midstream units) who failed to make a valid election are deemed to have elected to receive common stock. Furthermore, since more than 80% of the outstanding publicly held Navios Midstream units elected, or are deemed to have elected, to receive common stock, it is anticipated that the common stock will be issued to all holders of the publicly held Navios Midstream units.
No fractional shares of Navios Acquisition common stock will be issued. Each public holder of Navios Midstream units who would otherwise have been entitled to receive a fractional share of Navios Acquisition common stock of more than 0.5 will receive, in lieu of such fractional share, a full share of Navios Acquisition common stock. Each holder of publicly held Navios Midstream units who would otherwise have been entitled to receive a fractional share of Navios Acquisition common stock of less than 0.5 will receive no consideration for such fractional share, which shall be forfeited.
After the final results of the election process are determined, the final merger consideration, and the allocation of the merger consideration, if at all, will be calculated in accordance with the terms of the merger agreement.
