NEW YORK, May 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Encounter Technologies, Inc. (ENTID:PK), a company specializing in social media, video technology and on-line entertainment solutions, announced today revised details for a special dividend of shares in Pegasus Tel (PTEL:OTCBB). On Monday, June 6, 2011 (Official Record Date), all common stock shareholders of Encounter Technologies will be entitled to one share of Pegasus Tel for each share of ENTID they own.
As part of a pending agreement with Pegasus Tel, Encounter Technologies will be receiving preferred shares of Pegasus that will convert into common shares. Encounter will distribute these preferred shares to its common shareholders sufficient to allow each shareholder of Encounter, once converted to Pegasus common stock, to have the same number of common shares of Pegasus as they hold in Encounter. Pegasus Tel will acquire the ENTID MusicMatrix web site in exchange for the preferred shares of PTEL.
"Bottom line for me and our Board of Directors was that all shareholders have access to their Encounter shares from the forward stock split before the PTEL record date expired," stated Pegasus and Encounter Technologies CEO Anthony DiBiase. "With the delay in everyone getting their ENTID forward stock shares, we decided extending the date by five business days was just frankly the right thing to do. This decision will give current and new investors additional time to participate in this dividend while giving ENTID shareholders increased stock value with ownership in two separate public companies."
Encounter Technologies also announced that the revised payable date for this dividend is June 20, 2011 (Official Payable Date). On that date, the transfer agent for Encounter will distribute the preferred shares of Pegasus to the common stock shareholders of Encounter Technologies. The shares will have the minimum 6 month restriction allowed by securities regulations. Preferred shareholders of Encounter will not be entitled to receive any shares under this dividend.
