Hammerhead Energy Inc. Announces Plans to Redeem Public Warrants
CALGARY, Alberta, Aug. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hammerhead Energy Inc. (“Hammerhead” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: HHRS, HHRSW; TSX: HHRS, HHRS.WT) today announced that it will redeem for cash all of its outstanding public warrants to purchase its Class A Common Shares (“Common Shares”), 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”).
Under the terms of the Warrant Agreement, the Company is entitled to redeem all of its outstanding Public Warrants for cash if the last sales price of the Common Shares reported equals or exceeds US$10.00 per share on the trading day prior to the date of the notice of redemption (the “Notice of Redemption”). This share price performance requirement was satisfied as of August 15, 2023.
At the Company’s request, the Warrant Agent has delivered the Notice of Redemption to each of the registered holders of the Public Warrants on behalf of the Company.
The Public Warrants may be exercised by the registered holders thereof until 5 p.m. New York City time on September 15, 2023 (the “Redemption Date”) to purchase Common Shares underlying such warrants, (i) in cash, at the exercise price of US$11.50 per share or (ii) on a “cashless basis” in which the exercising holder will receive a number of Common Shares to be determined in accordance with the terms of the A&R Warrant Agreement and based on the Redemption Date and the average last reported sale price (the “Fair Market Value”) of the Common Shares during the 10 trading days immediately following the date on which the Notice of Redemption is sent to holders of Public Warrants. The Company will inform holders of the Fair Market Value no later than one business day after such 10‐trading day period ends. In no event will the number of Common Shares issued in connection with an exercise on a cashless basis exceed 0.361 Common Shares per Public Warrant. If any holder of Public Warrants would, after taking into account all of such holder’s Public Warrants exercised at one time, be entitled to receive a fractional interest in a Common Share, the number of shares the holder will be entitled to receive will be rounded down to the nearest whole number of shares. Holders of Public Warrants must follow the instructions provided in the Notice of Redemption in order to validly exercise their Public Warrants.
Public Warrants that remain unexercised following 5 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. Additionally, at 5 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date, the Public Warrants will cease trading on the NASDAQ Stock Market and the Toronto Stock Exchange.
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).
Questions concerning redemption and exercise of such Public Warrants can be directed to Computershare, Inc., Attn: Corporate Actions, 150 Royall Street, Canton, MA 02021, or by telephone: 1-800-736-3001.
