As previously reported, Opes Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) has scheduled a special meeting of stockholders (“Special Meeting”) to be held on September 16, 2019 at 10:00 am EST. At the Special Meeting, stockholders of the Company will vote on, among other matters, a proposal to extend the date by which the Company has to consummate an initial business combination from September 16, 2019 to November 15, 2019.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in the definitive proxy statement mailed to stockholders for the Special Meeting (the “Proxy Statement”), the Company has determined to allow holders of shares of common stock issued in the Company’s initial public offering (the “public shares”) to elect to convert their public shares into their pro rata portion of the funds held in the Company’s trust account established in connection with the initial public offering at any time up until the vote at the Special Meeting. Accordingly, conversion requests can still be submitted to the Company’s transfer agent in accordance with the instructions contained in the Proxy Statement up until 10:00 am EST (or such later time if the Special Meeting is otherwise adjourned).
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
