“It’s our belief that terminating the follow-on offering will put BMG in a better position to explore strategic alternatives,” reported Ramin Kamfar, BMG’s Chairman. “Our Board remains committed to pursuing opportunities to reduce current expenses and facilitate the preservation and potential increase in value for our shareholders.”
In connection with pursuing strategic alternatives, the Company also announced that the Board of Directors has authorized BMG’s advisor to negotiate an engagement letter with a nationally-recognized investment bank for financial advisory services.
“Throughout our strategic alternatives review process, we’ve seen overwhelming interest from the investment banking community,” said Dr. Randy Anderson, BMG’s CEO. “This positive feedback has been attributed to several factors, specifically: the strength of the management team, the Company’s successful regional operating partner strategy, the quality and diversity of the existing assets, and our proven capability to create value repeatedly across projects.”
In conjunction with the termination of the follow-on offering, the Company’s Board of Directors also voted to terminate the distribution reinvestment plan (DRIP), the Company’s share repurchase plan, and the Company’s automatic investment plan effective September 9, 2013.
Due to limitations under federal securities laws, BMG is unable to provide further detail regarding possible strategic alternatives until further notice. There is no set timetable for the Board of Directors to review alternatives and there can be no assurances that the review process will result in any transaction(s) being announced or completed.
