America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. Announces 1-for-3 Reverse Unit Split

Omaha, Nebraska, UNITED STATES


OMAHA, Neb., March 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- America First Multifamily Investors, L.P. (NASDAQ: ATAX) (the “Partnership” or “ATAX”) announced today that the Board of Managers of Greystone AF Manager, LLC, which is the general partner of the general partner of ATAX, has approved a 1-for-3 reverse unit split (the “Reverse Unit Split”) of its beneficial unit certificates representing assigned limited partnership interests (“BUCs”).  The Reverse Unit Split will become effective after market close on April 1, 2022, and the BUCs will commence trading on a split-adjusted basis on April 4, 2022.

As a result of the Reverse Unit Split, holders of BUCs will receive one BUC for every three BUCs owned at the close of business on April 1, 2022. All fractional BUCs created by the Reverse Unit Split will be rounded to the nearest whole BUC, with any fraction equal to or above 0.5 BUC rounded up to the next higher BUC, as provided by the Partnership’s limited partnership agreement.

“We are pleased that the Board of Managers of Greystone AF Manager LLC, the general partner of the Partnership’s general partner, has approved the Reverse Unit Split,” said Ken Rogozinski, the Partnership’s Chief Executive Officer. “We believe that this action, which has no monetary impact on our unitholders, will help the Partnership continue to grow by expanding the universe of potential investors and enhancing the ability of unitholders to purchase or hold BUCs through margin accounts.”

There is not expected to be any direct economic consequence to the Partnership or its unitholders from the Reverse Unit Split. The Reverse Unit Split will affect all BUC holders proportionally and will not alter any BUC holder’s percentage interest in the Partnership’s capital, except to the extent that the Reverse Unit Split would result in some BUC holders owning a fractional BUC.

Following the Reverse Unit Split, the number of the Partnership’s issued and outstanding BUCs would decrease from 66,049,908 BUCs to approximately 22,016,636 BUCs on a post-split basis, with proportionate adjustments to the BUCs under the Partnership’s 2015 Equity Incentive Plan and outstanding awards thereunder. The BUCs will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol “ATAX,” but the BUCs will trade under a new CUSIP.

The Partnership’s transfer agent, America Stock Transfer & Trust Company (“AST”), will act as the exchange agent for the Reverse Unit Split. Unitholders holding their BUC in book-entry form or in brokerage accounts need not take any action in connection with the Reverse Unit Split. Beneficial holders are encouraged to contact their bank, broker or custodian with any procedural questions. Unitholders holding physical certificates will be required to surrender such certificates, together with a Letter of Transmittal, to AST. Unitholders will have post-split BUCs reflected in book-entry form. However, AST will issue new physical certificates to such holders who request a new certificate. Holders may contact AST by phone at (800) 937-5449 or by email at help@astfinancial.com.
