Pegasus Wireless Corporation Announces Share Exchange
FREMONT, Calif. — Pegasus Wireless Corporation (Nasdaq:PGWC), a leading provider of advanced wireless solutions, announced today that the Company’s Board of Directors has approved a voluntary share exchange with OTC Wireless, Inc., of which Pegasus Wireless will own 51%. This exchange will reduce the number of Pegasus Wireless’ outstanding shares by approximately 45 million.
In May 2005, Pegasus Wireless completed a merger with OTC Wireless, and through this merger, restricted shares of OTC Wireless stock were converted to Pegasus. The Company is not completing a registration statement to allow these shares to be traded under the PGWC symbol; therefore, a spin-off company is being created to allow said shares of OTC Wireless to be traded in the open market under OTC Wireless’s own symbol which is to be announced. Shareholders prior to the record date of June 1, 2005 will be eligible to convert their shares to the new public entity.
Jasper Knabb, President of Pegasus Wireless Corporation, commented on the share exchange by saying, “The Board of Directors at Pegasus Wireless feels that it is in the best interest of all parties involved to move forward with this share exchange. By reducing the number of Pegasus Wireless shares outstanding, we are structuring a more favorable trading environment for current and new shareholders. In allowing those shareholders that hold stock prior to the record date to convert their shares to OTC Wireless, we are creating an exciting new investment opportunity with a company that Pegasus will be an active part of.”
