IWB Acquisitions LLC Announces Expiration Date of Offer
Tuesday January 28, 8:05 am ET
NEW YORK, Jan. 28 /Businesswire/ — IWB Acquisitions LLC (“IWB”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Zackfoot Investments LLC (“ZI”), announced today that its offer to acquire Register.com, Inc. (the “Company”) for $5.55 per common share expired at the close of business yesterday, as per the offer letter delivered to the Company’s Board of Directors on January 22nd , 2003.
Regarding the expiration, Mr. Prensky stated today: “We are disappointed that the Company did not respond to our offer, which they have had in their possession for over 5 days, since January 22nd. We believe that we gave them more than adequate time to respond to our offer. We made numerous phone calls to the Company and to individual Board members. Quite frankly, we are baffled as to why the Company did not contact us, particularly given the fact that, as a former member of the Company’s Board of Directors, I have had a longstanding interest in the domain name registration industry.”
Mr. Prensky also added, “We noted that an article that appeared in Crain’s New York Business on January 27th stated that the Company’s Board is hiring an investment banker. Should the circumstances warrant, we would be interested in re-engaging with the Company in the near future.”
