NEW YORK, Oct. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ROI Acquisition Corp. II (NASDAQ: ROIQ; ROIQW; ROIQU) (the "Company") announced today that it has withdrawn the stockholder and public warrantholder proposals relating to its previously announced proposed business combination with Ascend Telecom Holdings Limited. Under the Company's amended and restated certificate of incorporation, as amended (the "Charter"), the Company has until October 26, 2015 to either consummate a business combination or redeem 100% of the shares of common stock issued in its initial public offering ("Public Shares"). The Company does not expect to complete a business combination by such date and, accordingly, plans to redeem all of the Public Shares for a per share amount, determined in accordance with the Charter, of approximately $10.00 per share. Payment of such amounts will constitute the Company's final payment in respect of the liquidation of the trust account that holds the proceeds of the Company's initial public offering. The record date for the redemption payment is set as October 26, 2015 and, therefore, anyone who purchases shares of the Company's common stock after this date will not be entitled to receive any redemption payments. There will be no distributions with respect to the Company's warrants. The Company expects trading of its securities on the Nasdaq Capital Market to halt as of the close of trading on October 26, 2015.
