SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Overstock.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:OSTK) announced today that the final subscription price for its rights offering of Series A Preferred Shares (“Series A”) and Series B Preferred Shares (“Series B”) will be equal to the previously-announced maximum subscription price of $15.68 per share. As described in the prospectus supplement for the rights offering, the subscription price was set as 95 percent of the volume-weighted average trading price of the common stock for the five days ending on and including Dec. 6, 2016, rounded to the nearest $0.01, but not more than $15.68. The volume-weighted trading price for that period was $16.97; 95 percent of which is $16.12. As a result, rights holders who validly exercised rights in the offering will acquire their shares for $15.68 per share, which is approximately a 9.4 percent discount to the closing price of the common stock on Dec. 6, 2016 of $17.30.
The subscription period for the rights offering expired in accordance with its terms on Dec. 6, 2016. Subject to the matters described in the prospectus supplement, the closing of the rights offering is expected to occur on Dec. 15, 2016. Overstock expects to be able to fill all validly-submitted subscriptions, including subscriptions utilizing the over-subscription privilege, without prorating any subscriptions. Overstock will announce the final results of the rights offering after the closing occurs, and the subscription agent will notify rights holders of the number of shares, if any, allocated to each, as promptly as may be practicable after completion of the allocation process. The Series A shares will trade as digital shares on Overstock subsidiary t0.com’s trading platform. The Series B shares will be traditional shares which are expected to trade in the over-the-counter market.
