CEMEKC, Inc. Announces Expiration Of Tender Offer For Dynacq Healthcare, Inc.

Jan 21, 2016, 08:01 ET from CEMEKC, Inc.

PASADENA, Texas, Jan. 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CEMEKC, Inc. (the "Purchaser") announced today that it will file Amendment No. 3 to its Schedule TO, originally filed on December 18, 2015, with respect to the previously announced tender offer to purchase all of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of Dynacq Healthcare, Inc. ("Dynacq") not already owned by Dr. Eric K. Chan, Ella Y. T. C. Chan, the Chiu M. Chan Family Trust and the Purchaser for $0.10 in cash per share (the "Offer").

In Amendment No. 3, the Purchaser announced the expiration of the Offer at 11:59 PM, New York City time, on January 20, 2016, its waiver of the Majority-of-the-Minority Condition and the 90% Condition, and that it will purchase all of the shares validly tendered in response to the Offer.

According to American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC, the Depositary for the Offer, a total of 551,860 Shares were validly tendered in the Offer, which includes 5,504 Shares subject to guaranteed delivery. The total of 551,860 Shares represents, in the aggregate, approximately 11% of the outstanding Shares not owned by the Purchaser or the Chan Family. The total of 551,860 Shares, together with the Shares already owned by the Purchaser and the Chan Family, represents approximately 67% of the outstanding Shares. All shares validly tendered and not withdrawn have been accepted for purchase.

The number of Shares tendered pursuant to the Offer satisfies neither the Majority-of-the-Minority Condition nor the 90% Condition to the Offer, both of which were waivable at Purchaser's sole discretion. At the expiration of the Offer, the Purchaser waived both the Majority-of-the-Minority Condition and the 90% Condition. As the number of Shares validly tendered and accepted for payment in the Offer did not reach or exceed 90% of the Shares outstanding immediately prior to the expiration of the Offer, the Purchaser cannot and will not effect the Merger pursuant to the "short-form" merger provisions of Chapter 92A of the Nevada Revised Statutes. Therefore, as was discussed in the Offer to Purchase, Dynacq's current management, under the general direction of the current Board of Dynacq, will continue to manage Dynacq as an ongoing business. The Chan Family and/or the Purchaser may engage in other transactions for the purposes of purchasing all the outstanding Shares not already owned by them in the future.
