Summary:

I like the risk/reward on this deal – one stands to gain $80 by putting down $20. So even if the transaction is cancelled, the losses are only $20 and if it goes through the profit will be $80.

I also believe the likelihood of this deal going through is quite high – no shareholder approval required and the amount to by out odd lots is very low. Beneficial owners of more than 50% of the stock are supportive of the transaction.

To accomplish the reduction in the number of record holders of the Stock, the Company will effect a one-to-2,500 reverse stock split of its outstanding common and preferred Stock, whereby each 2,500 shares of common and preferred stock outstanding as of the effective date of the reverse stock split will be converted into one whole share of stock (the “Reverse Stock Split”). Because only one shareholder owns any of the company’s preferred stock, the reverse stock split only affects those shareholders with fractional shares of common stock. In lieu of issuing any fractional shares to stockholders as a result of the Reverse Stock Split, the Company will make a cash payment to shareholders holding a fractional share equal to $0.04 per pre-split share.

 

Shareholder approval:

Not required

 

Source of Funds:

The current number of shares of our common stock outstanding is 322,723,652. Of those shares, 174,591 will be affected by the Reverse Stock Split, which constitutes approximately .054% of the total outstanding shares. The Company estimates that the total funds required to consummate the Transaction will be approximately $47,000. Approximately $6,983.64 of this amount will be used to pay the consideration to Discontinued Stockholders entitled to receive cash for their fractional shares of our common stock in the Reverse Stock Split and approximately $40,000 will be used to pay the costs of the Transaction. The Company expects to pay the costs of the Transaction, including the amounts to be paid to stockholders holding fewer than 2,500 shares of our common stock, out of currently available cash.

    Update: there have been no further news with regards to UITA going private transaction. Shares are trading at virtually zero. So one can buy 2499 shares for only $4 (+transaction costs), with expectation of $100 pay-off if current deal still goes through (market does not seem to think it will).

    Do you think it might be possibile to purchase it? It seems barely traded! But it is an interesting idea!

      There seems to be plenty of liquidity if you are after only for 2499 shares (eg. on Thursday 25k shares changed hands). Having said that, there is still no further info whether the deal will go through. So likelihood of cancellation is quite high, but as on would risk only $4 – the loss would be tiny in any case.

      There have been no further updates with regards to this. SO I can neither tell when or if this is going to play out. So those $2.5 are simply sitting and waiting either to be turned into $100 or into $0.
