HOLLYWOOD, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2013) - NV5 Holdings, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ: NVEE) (NASDAQ: NVEEW), a provider of professional and technical engineering and consulting solutions, announced today that, commencing on September 27, 2013 and continuing until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on October 11, 2013 (the "Temporary Reduction Expiration Time"), it will temporarily reduce the exercise price of all of its outstanding public warrants from $7.80 per share to $6.00 per share. Any and all such warrants properly exercised in accordance with their respective terms prior to the Temporary Reduction Expiration Time will be accepted by the Company at the reduced $6.00 per share exercise price and one share of the Company's registered common stock per warrant will be issued to the exercising warrant holder.
After the Temporary Reduction Expiration Time, the exercise price of the public warrants will automatically revert to the warrant exercise price of $7.80 per share included in the original terms of the public warrants and the reduced exercise price will no longer be in effect. Except for the reduced $6.00 per share exercise price of the warrants prior to the Temporary Reduction Expiration Time, the terms of the public warrants remain unchanged. Holders of such warrants that desire to exercise their warrants should contact their brokers and instruct them to exercise their warrants prior to the Temporary Reduction Expiration Time.
Dickerson Wright, President and CEO of the Company, stated, "By temporarily reducing the exercise price on our warrants, we believe we can raise new capital in a cost effective and timely manner, improve liquidity and reduce the Company's warrant overhang. We will use the proceeds to support our operating requirements and our acquisitions strategy."
As previously disclosed, commencing today, the common stock and warrants comprising the Company's units will begin trading separately on the Nasdaq Capital Market ("Nasdaq") under the symbols "NVEE" and "NVEEW", respectively. In connection with the separate trading of the common stock and warrants, the Company's units ceased trading under the symbol "NVEEU" on or about the close of the markets on September 26, 2013 and the units will be delisted from Nasdaq.
As of today's date, approximately 1,610,000 public warrants are outstanding and the Company has received irrevocable commitments from holders of approximately 55% of the outstanding warrants, including participation from the Company's officers and directors, to exercise their warrants prior to the Temporary Reduction Expiration Time. The Company recommends that warrant holders obtain current market quotations for the Company's securities before deciding whether or not to exercise their warrants.
THE COMPANY'S BOARD OF DIRECTORS HAS APPROVED THE TEMPORARY WARRANT EXERCISE PRICE REDUCTION. HOWEVER, NEITHER THE COMPANY NOR ANY OF ITS DIRECTORS, OFFICERS OR EMPLOYEES MAKES ANY RECOMMENDATION AS TO WHETHER TO EXERCISE WARRANTS. EACH HOLDER OF A WARRANT MUST MAKE ITS OWN DECISION AS TO WHETHER TO EXERCISE A WARRANT.
