BRC Inc. Announces Redemption of All Outstanding Warrants
SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BRC Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: BRCC) today announced that it will redeem all of its outstanding warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase shares of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Common Stock”), that remain outstanding at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on May 4, 2022 (the “Redemption Date”) for a redemption price of $0.10 per Warrant (the “Redemption Price”). The Warrants were issued under the Warrant Agreement, dated as of February 25, 2021 (the “Warrant Agreement”), by and between SilverBox Engaged Merger Corp I (“SilverBox”) and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as warrant agent (the “Warrant Agent”), and further assumed by the Company on February 9, 2022, as part of the units sold in SilverBox’s initial public offering (the “IPO”) (such warrants, the “Public Warrants”) or in a private placement simultaneously with the IPO (such warrants, the “Private Warrants” which, together with the Public Warrants, constitute the Warrants), as applicable. The Public Warrants are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) under the symbol “BRCC WS.”
Under the terms of the Warrant Agreement, the Company is entitled to redeem all of the outstanding Warrants at the Redemption Price provided that the closing price of the Class A Common Stock for any twenty (20) trading days within the thirty (30) trading-day period ending on the third trading day prior to the date on which the Company sends a notice of the redemption to the registered holders of the outstanding Warrants (the “Reference Value”) equals or exceeds $10.00 per share, and if the Reference Value is less than $18.00 per share, the Private Warrants are also concurrently called for redemption on the same terms as the outstanding Public Warrants. These share price performance requirements were satisfied as of March 30, 2022 (which is the third trading day prior to the sending of the Redemption Notice (as defined below)). At the direction of the Company, the Warrant Agent has delivered a notice of redemption (the “Redemption Notice”) to each of the registered holders of the outstanding Warrants.
The Warrants may be exercised on a cashless basis by the holders thereof until 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date to acquire fully paid and non-assessable shares of Class A Common Stock underlying such Warrants. Payment upon exercise of the Warrants will be made on a “cashless basis” in which the exercising holder will receive a number of shares of Class A Common Stock to be determined in accordance with the terms of the Warrant Agreement and based on the Redemption Date and the volume weighted average price of the Class A Common Stock for the ten (10) trading days immediately following the date on which the Redemption Notice is sent to the registered holders of the outstanding Warrants (the “Redemption Fair Market Value”). The Company will provide holders notice of the Redemption Fair Market Value no later than one (1) business day after such ten (10) trading day period ends. In no event will the number of shares of Class A Common Stock issued in connection with an exercise on a cashless basis exceed 0.361 shares of Class A Common Stock per Warrant. If any holder of Warrants would, after taking into account all of such holder’s Warrants exercised at one time, be entitled to receive a fractional interest in a share of Class A Common Stock, the number of shares the holder will be entitled to receive will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of shares. Warrant holders may not exercise Warrants and receive shares of Class A Common Stock in exchange for payment in cash of the $11.50 per Warrant exercise price until a registration statement covering the issuance of shares of Class A Common Stock upon exercise of the Warrants for cash under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), is declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The Company filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the SEC (Registration No. 333-263627) to register the issuance of shares of Class A Common Stock upon exercise of the Warrants for cash under the Securities Act, but the registration statement has not yet been declared effective by the SEC and the Company cannot give any assurances that the SEC will declare it effective prior to the Redemption Date. To the extent the registration statement is declared effective by the SEC prior to the Redemption Date, the Company will inform Warrant holders of the procedure to exercise their Warrants for cash and receive shares of Class A Common Stock in exchange for payment in cash of the $11.50 per Warrant exercise price.
Any Warrants that remain unexercised at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date will be void and no longer exercisable, and the holders of those Warrants will be entitled to receive only the Redemption Price of $0.10 per Warrant (or as otherwise described in the Redemption Notice for holders who hold their Public Warrants in “street name”). The Company understands from NYSE that May 3, 2022, the trading day prior to the Redemption Date, will be the last day on which the Warrants will be traded on NYSE.
None of the Company, its board of directors or employees has made or is making any representation or recommendation to any holder of the Warrants as to whether to exercise or refrain from exercising any Warrants.
Questions concerning redemption and exercise of the Warrants can be directed to the Warrant Agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, 1 State Street, 30th Floor, New York, NY 10004, attention: Reorganization Department, telephone: (212) 509-4000.
