Nov 04, 2015, 16:00 ET from ROI Acquisition Corp. II

NEW YORK, Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ROI Acquisition Corp. II (NASDAQ: ROIQ; ROIQW; ROIQU) (the "Company") announced today that it has terminated the merger agreement with Ascend Telecom Holdings Limited as of November 2, 2015. As previously announced, the Company plans to redeem all of its public shares for a per share amount of approximately $10.00 per share. The public shares ceased trading as of the open of business on October 26, 2015, in order to allow time for the settlement of trades. As of the close of business on October 30, 2015, the Public Shares were deemed cancelled and represent only the right to receive the redemption amount. The redemption amount will be payable to the holders of record of the public shares (including the public shares included in the Company's units) upon presentation of their stock or unit certificates or other delivery of their shares or units. Beneficial owners of public shares held in "street name," however, will not need to take any action in order to receive the redemption amount.

There will be no redemption rights with respect to the Company's warrants. The Company's initial shareholders have waived their redemption rights with respect to their founder shares issued prior to the Company's initial public offering.
