Beijing, Feb. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TKK Symphony Acquisition Corporation (Nasdaq: TKKS) (“TKK” or the “Company”) today announced that it has further extended the expiration date of its previously announced tender offer to purchase up to 25,000,000 ordinary shares at a purchase price of $10.28 per share in cash plus a contingent cash payment equal to a pro rata portion of any additional accrued interest remaining in the Company’s trust account in excess of $10.28 per share. The offer is being made in connection with the Company’s previously announced share exchange with Glory Star New Media Group Limited, a Cayman Islands exempted company. The purpose of the extension is to provide additional time for the parties to close the transaction. As amended, the tender offer will now expire at 5:00 p.m. New York City time, on Thursday, February 13, 2020, unless further extended or earlier terminated.

If the parties are unable to close the transaction on or prior to February 20, 2020, TKK intends to issue a dividend of one warrant to purchase one-half of one ordinary share for each public ordinary share of TKK issued and outstanding as of February 21, 2020, for a total of 25,000,000 warrants to purchase an aggregate of 12,500,000 ordinary shares of TKK. Each such warrant will be identical to the warrants included in the units sold in the Company’s initial public offering. TKK will not issue such dividend if the parties close the transaction on or prior to February 20, 2020.

Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the depositary for the tender offer, has advised TKK that, as of 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Wednesday, February 12, 2020, an aggregate of 24,986,491 ordinary shares were properly tendered and not properly withdrawn.
