NEW YORK–(ZEEST MEDIA)–AlTi Global, Inc. (“AlTi,” “we” or the “company”) (NASDAQ: ALTI), a leading independent global wealth and asset manager, today announced that it has commenced an exchange offer (the “Offer”) and consent solicitation (the “Consent Solicitation”) relating to its outstanding Public Warrants and Private Warrants (each as defined below, and collectively, the “Warrants”). The purpose of the Offer and Consent Solicitation is to simplify the Company’s capital structure and reduce the potential dilutive impact of the Warrants.
The Offer is being made to all holders of the Company’s Warrants, consisting of: (i) the Warrants sold as part of the units in the initial public offering of Cartesian Growth Corporation, a special purpose acquisition corporation with whom AlTi completed a business combination in January 2023 (the “IPO”) whether they were purchased in the IPO or thereafter in the open market (the “Public Warrants”) and (ii) the Warrants sold as part of the units in a private placement that occurred simultaneously with the IPO (the “Private Warrants”). The Company is offering to all holders of the Warrants the opportunity to receive 0.25 shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”) in exchange for each Warrant tendered by the holder and exchanged pursuant to the Offer. Pursuant to the Offer, the Company is offering up to an aggregate of 4,973,096 shares of its Class A Common Stock in exchange for the Warrants.
Concurrently with the Offer, the Company is also soliciting consents from holders of the Warrants to amend the warrant agreement that governs all of the Warrants (the “Warrant Agreement”) to permit the Company to require that each Warrant that is outstanding upon the closing of the Offer be mandatorily exchanged for 0.225 shares of Class A Common Stock, which is a ratio 10% less than the exchange ratio applicable to the Offer (such amendment, the “Warrant Amendment”). Pursuant to the terms of the Warrant Agreement, amendments, including the proposed Warrant Amendment, require the vote or written consent of holders of at least 65% of the number of the then outstanding Public Warrants and, separately with respect to any amendment to the terms of the Private Warrants or any provision of the Warrant Agreement with respect to the Private Warrants such as the Warrant Amendment, the vote or written consent of at least 65% of the number of the then outstanding Private Warrants. Parties representing approximately 36.7% of the Public Warrants and 66.3% of the Private Warrants have agreed to tender their Warrants in the Offer and to consent to the Warrant Amendment in the Consent Solicitation pursuant to tender and support agreements with us (each, a “Tender and Support Agreement”). Accordingly, if holders of an additional approximately 28.3% of the outstanding Public Warrants consent to the Warrant Amendment in the Consent Solicitation, and the other conditions of the Offer are satisfied or waived, then the Warrant Amendment will be adopted with respect to the Public Warrants. With respect to the Private Warrants, because holders of approximately 66.3% of the Private Warrants have agreed to consent to the Warrant Amendment in the Consent Solicitation, if the other conditions described in the Prospectus/Offer to Exchange are satisfied or waived, then the Warrant Amendment will be adopted with respect to the Private Warrants. The offering period will expire at one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, on June 2, 2023, or such later time and date to which the Company may extend (the “Expiration Date”), as described in the Company’s Schedule TO and Prospectus/Offer to Exchange (each as defined below). Tendered Warrants may be withdrawn by holders at any time prior to the Expiration Date. The Company’s obligation to complete the Offer is not conditioned on the tender of a minimum amount of Warrants.
The Offer and Consent Solicitation are being made pursuant to a Prospectus/Offer to Exchange, dated May 5, 2023 (the “Prospectus/Offer to Exchange”), and Schedule TO, dated May 5, 2023 (the “Schedule TO”), each of which have been filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and more fully set forth the terms and conditions of the Offer and Consent Solicitation.
The Company’s Class A Common Stock and its Public Warrants are listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) under the symbol “ALTI” and “ALTIW,” respectively. As of April 28, 2023, a total of 19,892,387 Warrants were outstanding, consisting of 10,992,453 Public Warrants and 8,899,934 Private Placement Warrants.
