Hammerhead Energy Inc. Announces “Fair Market Value” in Connection With Redemption of its Outstanding Public Warrants
CALGARY, Alberta, Aug. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hammerhead Energy Inc. (“Hammerhead” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: HHRS, HHRSW; TSX: HHRS, HHRS.WT) today announced the “Fair Market Value” in connection with its previously announced redemption of its outstanding Public Warrants (as defined below). The Fair Market Value will be used to determine the number of Class A Common Shares (the “Common Shares”), that will be issued on a “cashless” exercise of a Public Warrant subject to the terms of the A&R Warrant Agreement (as defined below).
On August 16, 2023, the Company announced that it will redeem all of its outstanding public warrants to purchase Common Shares that were originally issued as part of the units sold in Decarbonization Plus Acquisition Corporation IV’s (“DCRD”) initial public offering (the “Public Warrants”) and originally issued pursuant to the Warrant Agreement, dated August 10, 2021 (the “Warrant Agreement”), by and between DCRD and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as warrant agent, and assumed by the Company pursuant to an amended and restated warrant agreement, dated February 22, 2023 (the “A&R Warrant Agreement”), by and among the Company, Computershare Inc. and Computershare Trust Company, N.A., as warrant agent (the “Warrant Agent”), for a redemption price of US$0.10 per Public Warrant (the “Redemption Price”). In connection with the redemption, the Warrant Agent previously delivered a redemption notice (the “Redemption Notice”) on the Company’s behalf, and the Company committed to inform holders of Public Warrants of the calculation of the Fair Market Value (as defined in the A&R Warrant Agreement).
The Warrant Agent has delivered a notice to each of the registered holders of the outstanding Public Warrants on behalf of the Company informing holders:
- that the Redemption Fair Market Value is US$12.38; and
- as a result, holders who exercise their Public Warrants on a “cashless basis” will be entitled to receive 0.296 Common Shares per Public Warrant.
Public Warrants that remain unexercised following 5:00 p.m. New York City time on September 15, 2023 will be void and no longer exercisable, and the registered holders of such unexercised Public Warrants will only be entitled to receive the Redemption Price per Public Warrant.
For additional information, including information on how holders may exercise their Public Warrants, see the Redemption Notice. For copies of the Redemption Notice and the Fair Market Value Notice, please visit our investor relations website at ir.hhres.com.
The Common Shares underlying the Public Warrants have been registered by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and are covered by a registration statement filed on Form F-1 with, and declared effective by, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) (Registration No. 333-270624).
