Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2010/01/11 - Atlantic Wind and Solar, Inc. (Pinksheets: AWSL - News) notifies its shareholders that the previously announced record and payable dates for the 1-for-3 restricted stock dividend have been changed to January 15, and January 25, respectively.
Atlantic Wind and Solar, Inc. hereby notifies its shareholders that the previously announced record and payable dates for the 1-for-3 restricted stock dividend have been changed to Friday, January 15, 2010 and Monday, January 25, 2010, respectively. The Company regrets having to make this change but circumstances beyond our control have made it necessary.
The Record Date
Shareholders of record on Friday, January 15, 2010 will receive one new, restricted common share of the Company for each three (3) shares held. To qualify for this stock dividend, shareholders will have to have purchased their shares prior to the close of trading on Tuesday, January 12, 2010.
The Payable Date
On the new Payable Date, January 25, 2010, Shareholders of Record will have their shares automatically mailed to them if their shares are held in certificate form. If their shares are held in a brokerage account, the brokerage firm will receive those shares on the payment date for processing, and will reflect in their account shortly thereafter.
For every three (3) common shares held on the record date, shareholders will receive one (1) free additional common restricted share on the payable date. Under SEC Rule 144, the dividend share will be restricted from resale until such time as the Company files and receives clearance of a Registration Form Statement with the Securities & Exchange Commission.
The board of directors of AWSL elected to increase the shares outstanding by paying this stock dividend in order to improve market liquidity and hopefully expand the shareholder base.
We apologize for any inconvenience this delay in paying the dividend may have caused. Rest assured the Company has been doing everything possible to expedite this matter.
