Cemtrex Inc. (Nasdaq: CETX, CETXP, CETXW), a world leading technology and manufacturing company, announced today that it will be declaring a dividend to its stockholders of record in the form of subscription rights.
Under the terms of the rights offering, Cemtrex will distribute, at no charge, non-transferable subscription rights to purchase one share of its common stock to holders of record for each share of common stock held on the record date, and one share of its common stock to holders of record for every 10 publicly-traded warrants held on the record date. Each basic subscription right entitles the rights holder to purchase one share of common stock at the subscription price. The subscription price will be the lower of (i) 90% of the closing price of Cemtrex's common stock on the record date of the rights offering, or (ii) 95% of the closing price of Cemtrex's common stock on December 19, 2018, in each case rounded to the nearest whole penny. Holders of rights who exercise their basic subscription rights in full will also have an over-subscription privilege, pursuant to which they may subscribe to purchase additional shares at the subscription price to the extent that not all basic subscription rights are exercised by other rights holders, subject to certain limitations and as more fully described in a prospectus supplement relating to the rights offering. Cemtrex will not accept any subscriptions that are less than 100 shares.
The expected 2018 rights offering calendar is as follows:
|November 16, 2018||Ownership Day – Must be a stockholder as of this day by 4:00 p.m. (Eastern time) to receive the subscription rights on the record date due to T+2 settlement.|
|November 19, 2018||Ex-Right Day – Cemtrex common stock will trade ex-dividend without the rights attached|
|November 20, 2018||Record Date – Must be a stockholder by 4:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on the Ownership Day to be deemed a stockholder of record on the record date.|
