Atlanta, GA, United States, 2011/08/22 - Radiant Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: RADS), today announced the acceptance for payment of shares tendered pursuant to the tender offer by NCR Corporation, through its wholly owned subsidiary Ranger Acquisition Corporation, for all outstanding shares of Radiant. NASDAQ: RADS NCR
The tender offer expired at 12:00 midnight, Eastern Time, on Friday, August 19, 2011. Based on information provided by BNY Mellon Shareowner Services, the depositary for the tender offer, 35,859, 237 shares, representing approximately 87% of Radiant’s outstanding shares, were validly tendered and not withdrawn in the offer (including shares tendered by notice of guaranteed delivery). All such shares have been accepted for payment in accordance with the terms of the tender offer.
NCR intends to exercise its “top-up” option and thereafter will own sufficient common stock of Radiant necessary to effect a “short-form” merger under Georgia law, after which Radiant will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of NCR, without the need for a meeting of Radiant shareholders. In connection with the short-form merger, each outstanding share of Radiant common stock will be converted into the right to receive $28.00 in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes, the same price per share paid in the tender offer. NCR intends to complete the merger promptly and upon the completion of the merger Radiant’s shares will cease to be traded on the NASDAQ Global Select Market.
