NEW YORK, June 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Garnero Group Acquisition Company (NASDAQ: GGAC) ("GGAC"), a public investment vehicle formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, acquisition or similar business combination, announced today that it has adjourned the extraordinary general meeting of its shareholders that convened today, without conducting any business, and will reconvene the extraordinary general meeting at 10:00 a.m., eastern time, on July 19, 2016. GGAC had announced, on June 17, 2016, its intention to adjourn the meeting, and the date and time that the meeting is to be reconvened is the same as in the previous announcement.
The purpose of the extraordinary general meeting is to consider the proposed business combination with Q1 Comercial de Roupas S.A. ("Grupo Colombo" or "GC"), a leading apparel retailer in Brazil, and certain related proposals. GGAC determined that an additional adjournment of the extraordinary general meeting was necessary to provide additional time for GC to finalize the previously disclosed financial restructuring and for GGAC to deliver additional information regarding the transaction to its shareholders.
GGAC will send a written notice of the adjournment to its shareholders. Consideration of the business combination proposal at the reconvened extraordinary general meeting is dependent upon GGAC's shareholders approving an extension of the deadline for GGAC to complete an initial business combination from June 25, 2016 to July 22, 2016. If this extension is not approved, GGAC will automatically wind up, dissolve and liquidate starting by June 25, 2016, and accordingly the business combination will be terminated.
GGAC encourages all of its shareholders to vote at the reconvened extraordinary general meeting. If you have already provided voting instructions, your shares will be voted in accordance with these instructions at the reconvened extraordinary general meeting, unless you affirmatively change your instructions as described in the proxy statement for the extraordinary general meeting.
