HOUSTON, June 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cardtronics, Inc. (Nasdaq:CATM) ("Cardtronics" or the "Company"), the world's largest ATM owner/operator, announced that at a special meeting held today, stockholders approved the Company’s plan of redomicile to change its parent company's location of incorporation from Delaware to the United Kingdom. Approximately 90 percent of Cardtronics stockholders voted at the meeting, with more than 99 percent voting in favor of the plan of redomicile, previously announced on April 27, 2016.
Steve Rathgaber, Cardtronics' CEO, said, “We are pleased that Cardtronics stockholders have overwhelmingly voted in favor of our plan to redomicile in the United Kingdom. We plan to complete the steps necessary to effect the redomicile early in the third quarter.”
“Cardtronics carefully evaluated both potential outcomes of the Brexit vote in advance of announcing our plan to redomicile earlier this year. We believe our redomicile will better align Cardtronics' corporate structure with our current and future business activities, including our substantial business presence in the U.K., where approximately 60 percent of our global workforce is based, and with the fastest-growing segments of Cardtronics today, which are in the U.K. and continental Europe,” Rathgaber added.
