Sep 09, 2011, 08:00 ET from ChaPaVe Partners

NEW YORK, Sept. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ChaPaVe Partners plans to commence a Tactical Tender Offer (TTO) for up to 1,500,000 shares of the outstanding shares of Travelzoo Inc. (NASDAQ: TZOO) common stock subject to certain conditions.

The TTO is subject to the following terms:

1. The TTO is offered for shares of common stock.  We encourage all 150 institutional investor shareholders to add to their holdings in order to reduce the number of shareholders as part of our tactical strategy.  

2. The offering price for the shares to be tendered is $40.00 per share.

3. The offer will be subject to certain conditions.  One condition is that ChaPaVe will meet with Travelzoo's management and board of directors in order to complete due diligence.  Another condition is that ChaPaVe obtains a financing commitment no later than October 18th, 2011, subject to possible extension.  

4. ChaPaVe may choose not to move ahead with the TTO if Travelzoo experiences any material adverse change in its business or if there is a material change of its share price as of the date of this announcement.

Assuming the remaining shares are successfully tendered to ChaPaVe, Travelzoo will be in a position to examine a going private initiative with ChaPaVe because they have a longer-term strategic view.

Shareholders of Travelzoo are advised to read the TTO when it becomes available on October 18, 2011 because it will contain important information. Investors may obtain the tender offer statement and other filed documents for free at the Securities and Exchange Commission's web site.
