CHICAGO, 12 de febrero de 2024 - SP Plus Corporation ("SP+") (NASDAQ: SP) ha anunciado hoy que en su junta extraordinaria de accionistas celebrada el 9 de febrero de 2024 (la "Junta Extraordinaria"), los accionistas de SP+ votaron a favor de aprobar el Acuerdo y Plan de Fusión previamente anunciado, fechado el 4 de octubre de 2023, entre Metropolis Technologies, Inc. ("Metropolis"), Schwinger Merger Sub Inc, filial directa propiedad al 100% de Metropolis ("Merger Sub") y SP+ (el "Acuerdo de Fusión"), en virtud del cual Merger Sub se fusionará con SP+ (la "Fusión"), sobreviviendo SP+ a la Fusión como filial propiedad al 100% de Metropolis.

En la Junta Extraordinaria, aproximadamente el 99,94% de los votos emitidos fueron a favor de la propuesta de adopción del Acuerdo de Fusión, lo que representaba aproximadamente el 78,64% de las acciones ordinarias de SP+ en circulación con derecho a voto.

Según los términos del Acuerdo de Fusión, los accionistas de SP+ tendrán derecho a recibir 54,00 $ por acción en efectivo, sin intereses y sujetos a las retenciones fiscales necesarias, al cierre de la Fusión. La aprobación por los accionistas de SP+ cumple una de las condiciones necesarias para la realización de la fusión. La Fusión sigue estando sujeta al cumplimiento o la renuncia de otras condiciones de cierre, incluida la expiración o finalización del periodo de espera en virtud de la Ley de Mejoras Antimonopolio Hart-Scott-Rodino de 1976, en su versión modificada (la "Ley HSR"). Como se ha comunicado anteriormente, el 5 de febrero de 2024, SP+ y Metropolis recibieron cada una una solicitud de información adicional y material documental, a menudo denominada "Segunda Solicitud", de la División Antimonopolio del Departamento de Justicia (el "DOJ"), que amplía el periodo de espera en virtud de la Ley HSR hasta 30 días después de que SP+ y Metropolis hayan cumplido sustancialmente cada una con la Segunda Solicitud, a menos que el periodo de espera sea ampliado voluntariamente por las partes o finalice antes por el DOJ. SP+ y Metropolis seguirán cooperando plenamente con el DOJ en su revisión.

Los resultados completos de las votaciones sobre las propuestas votadas en la Junta Extraordinaria se expondrán en un Formulario 8-K que SP+ presentará ante la Comisión del Mercado de Valores de Estados Unidos (la "SEC"). Las referencias en el presente documento a los términos del Acuerdo de Fusión están sujetas a los términos completos del Acuerdo de Fusión, que SP+ presentó a la SEC en el Formulario 8-K el 5 de octubre de 2023, y están calificadas por referencia a los mismos.

Uso de declaraciones prospectivas

 This communication includes certain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of, and subject to the safe harbor created by, the federal securities laws, including statements related to the proposed Merger, including financial estimates and statements as to the expected timing, completion and effects of the Merger. These forward-looking statements are based on SP+’s current expectations, estimates and projections regarding, among other things, the expected date of closing of the Merger and the potential benefits thereof, its business and industry, management’s beliefs and certain assumptions made by SP+, all of which are subject to change. Forward-looking statements often contain words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “aims,” “plan,” “believe,” “could,” “seek,” “see,” “will,” “may,” “would,” “might,” “considered,” “potential,” “estimate,” “continue,” “likely,” “expect,” “target” or similar expressions or the negatives of these words or other comparable terminology that convey uncertainty of future events or outcomes. By their nature, forward-looking statements address matters that involve risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend upon future circumstances that may or may not occur, such as the consummation of the Merger and the anticipated benefits thereof. These and other forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future results and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements. Important risk factors that may cause such a difference include, but are not limited to: (i) the completion of the Merger on anticipated terms and timing, including obtaining required stockholder and regulatory approvals, and the satisfaction of other conditions to the completion of the Merger; (ii) the ability of Metropolis to obtain the necessary financing arrangements set forth in the commitment letters received in connection with the Merger; (iii) potential litigation relating to the Merger that could be instituted against Metropolis, SP+ or their respective directors, managers or officers, including the effects of any outcomes related thereto; (iv) the risk that disruptions from the Merger will harm SP+’s business, including current plans and operations; (v) the ability of SP+ to retain and hire key personnel; (vi) potential adverse reactions or changes to business relationships resulting from the announcement or completion of the Merger; (vii) continued availability of capital and financing and rating agency actions; (viii) legislative, regulatory and economic developments affecting SP+’s business; (ix) general economic and market developments and conditions; (x) potential business uncertainty, including changes to existing business relationships, during the pendency of the Merger that could affect SP+’s financial performance; (xi) certain restrictions during the pendency of the Merger that may impact SP+’s ability to pursue certain business opportunities or strategic transactions; (xii) unpredictability and severity of catastrophic events, including but not limited to acts of terrorism, pandemics, outbreaks of war or hostilities, as well as SP+’s response to any of the aforementioned factors; (xiii) significant transaction costs associated with the Merger; (xiv) the possibility that the Merger may be more expensive to complete than anticipated, including as a result of unexpected factors or events; (xv) the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the Merger, including in circumstances requiring SP+ to pay a termination fee or other expenses; (xvi) competitive responses to the Merger; (xvii) the risks and uncertainties pertaining to SP+’s business, including those set forth in Part I, Item 1A of SP+’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and Part II, Item 1A of SP+’s subsequent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, as such risk factors may be amended, supplemented or superseded from time to time by other reports filed by SP+ with the SEC; and (xviii) the risks and uncertainties that are described in SP+’s definitive proxy statement dated and filed with SEC on January 10, 2024 (the “Proxy Statement”). These risks, as well as other risks associated with the Merger, are more fully discussed in the Proxy Statement. While the list of factors presented here is, and the list of factors presented in the Proxy Statement are, considered representative, no such list should be considered a complete statement of all potential risks and uncertainties. Unlisted factors may present significant additional obstacles to the realization of forward-looking statements. Consequences of material differences in results as compared with those anticipated in the forward-looking statements could include, among other things, business disruption, operational problems, financial loss, legal liability to third parties and similar risks, any of which could have a material impact on SP+’s financial condition, results of operations, credit rating or liquidity. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and SP+ does not undertake to and specifically disclaims any obligation to publicly release the results of any updates or revisions to these forward-looking statements that may be made to reflect future events or circumstances after the date of such statements or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.
