Weyland Tech Provides Update Regarding Its Spin-Off of Weyland AtoZ Pay
Deadline for Submitting Beneficial Owner Lists Extended to November 2nd; Further Clarifications Provided
New York – (NewMediaWire) – October 25, 2018 – Weyland Tech Inc. (OTCQX: WEYL) (“Weyland” or the “Company”) announced today that the deadline for DTC Participants to submit their beneficial owner lists to the Company has been extended until November 2, 2018, as approximately 73% of the DTC Participants have still not submitted their beneficial owner lists.
The Company also continues to receive certain repetitive questions from DTC Participants regarding aspects of the spin-off procedure. While some of these questions are already addressed in the Spin-Off Processing Instructions, the Company nevertheless thought it would be helpful to participants if we provided a short Q & A segment in an attempt to put some of these questions to rest.
What is the threshold for rounding-up a shareholder’s entitlement to the spin-off shares?
The beneficial owner round-up threshold will be .5 and above.The spin-off entitlement calculation is made by dividing a shareholder’s position in WEYL by 5. If that calculation results in a decimal/remainder that is .5 or above, the spin-off entitlement will be rounded up. If the decimal/remainder is less than .5, the spin-off entitlement will be rounded down. The table below provides an example of this rounding procedure in the event the spin-off entitlement calculation results in a fractional share:
|WEYL Shares Held||Spin-Off Entitlement||Physical Shares Received|
Can a DTC Participant receive one certificate, in its name, on behalf of all of its beneficial owners?
No. All participants must submit their beneficial owner lists in accordance with Spin-Off Processing Instructions and the certificates for spin-off shares will be issued as specified in the instructions.
Can a DTC Participant receive one certificate, in its name, on behalf of all of its objecting beneficial owners (OBOs)?
No. Participants must list each OBO position on its beneficial owner list (i.e., OBO #1 – 5,000 shares, OBO #2 – 2,500 shares, etc.) and separate certificates will be issued in the participant’s name for each OBO position and delivered to the participant.
Can certificates for spin-off shares issued in the name of a non-objecting beneficial owner (NOBO) be delivered directly to the NOBO’s bank/broker if such delivery is requested by the NOBO?
Yes, as long as the NOBO has made a request to their bank/broker that the certificate for their spin-off shares be delivered to their bank/broker in lieu of their account address.
What happens if a DTC Participant elects not submit their beneficial owner list.
Their clients will be unable to receive their entitlement to the spin-off shares.
Does the Bank/Broker Beneficial Owner List Transmittal Form require a medallion stamp?
As a reminder to shareholders and banks/brokers, the updated relevant dates for the spin-off are as follows:
Record Date: October 12, 2018
Bank/Broker Deadline for Submission of Beneficial Owner Lists: November 2, 2018
Distribution Date:November 30, 2018
If any banks/brokers have not yet received the Company’s spin-off processing instructions through the DTC Important Notice # (9903-18) posted through CA WEB, they can also receive the spin-off processing instructions by making a request by email directly to the Company. The contact details for such requests, and any other inquiries from banks/brokers or shareholders regarding the spin-off, are as follows:
