Liquidating Cash Distribution and Closing of Stock Transfer Book. The Company has announced, in accordance with its plan of liquidation approved by its shareholders on November 2, 2016, that its Board of Directors has declared a second liquidating cash distribution in the amount of $11.0 million or $13.30 per share. The effective date and payment date for the liquidating cash distribution will be the close of business on January 2, 2020. As of the close of business on January 2, 2020, the effective date, the Company’s common stock will cease trading, and the Company’s transfer books will be closed. Accordingly, any future liquidating cash distributions will be paid to the stockholders of record as of the close of business on January 2, 2020, the effective date.
At November 20, 2019, the Company had outstanding 826,986 shares of common stock.
Future Liquidating Distribution. The Company determined the amount of $13.30 per share for the distribution by subtracting from its current cash on hand amounts for known, reasonably anticipated and contingent liabilities during the remainder of its liquidation process, and adding reasonably anticipated cash inflows. To the extent that these funds are not exhausted, the Company expects to use residual cash to execute a future distribution to its shareholders. A future distribution is anticipated to be in the range of $0 to $0.63 per share; however, the amount and timing of a future distribution ultimately will depend on a number of factors, including, but not limited to, the timing and amount of the receipt of cash with respect to the Company’s remaining receivables, and the timing of and costs the Company will incur to complete the liquidation and wind-down process.
