Today announced the expiration of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the “HSR Act”), with respect to the previously announced agreement for Twitter to be acquired by affiliates of Elon Musk for $54.20 per share in cash.
The expiration of the HSR waiting period occurred at 11:59 p.m. EDT on June 2, 2022, which was a condition to the closing of the pending transaction. Completion of the transaction is subject to the satisfaction of the remaining customary closing conditions, including approval by Twitter stockholders and the receipt of remaining applicable regulatory approvals.
Twitter, its directors and certain executive officers are participants in the solicitation of proxies from stockholders in connection with the pending acquisition of Twitter (the “Transaction”). Twitter has filed a preliminary proxy statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) in connection with the solicitation of proxies to approve the Transaction.
Twitter will furnish the definitive proxy statement, when available, together with a WHITE proxy card to each Twitter stockholder entitled to vote at the special meeting to consider the Transaction.
Additional information regarding such participants, including their direct or indirect interests, by security holdings or otherwise, is included in the proxy statement and other relevant documents filed with the SEC in connection with the Transaction.
Additional information relating to the foregoing can also be found in Twitter’s definitive proxy statement for its 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which was filed with the SEC on April 12, 2022.
STOCKHOLDERS ARE URGED TO READ THE PROXY STATEMENT (INCLUDING ANY AMENDMENTS OR SUPPLEMENTS THERETO) AND ANY OTHER RELEVANT DOCUMENTS THAT TWITTER WILL FILE WITH THE SEC WHEN THEY BECOME AVAILABLE BECAUSE THEY WILL CONTAIN IMPORTANT INFORMATION.
Stockholders may obtain, free of charge, the proxy statement, any amendments or supplements thereto, and any other relevant documents filed by Twitter with the SEC in connection with the Transaction at the SEC’s website (http://www.sec.gov).
