NEW YORK, Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Empeiria Acquisition Corp. (OTC BB: EPAQ; EPAQW; EPAQU) ("EAC" or the "Company") today announced that its previously announced tender offer, as amended (the "Tender Offer"), has been extended until 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on Thursday, December 13, 2012. Except for such extension, all of the terms and conditions set forth in the Tender Offer materials remain unchanged.
Stockholders who desire to own shares of the Company's common stock subsequent to the proposed acquisition of Integrated Drilling Equipment Company Holdings Inc. ("IDE") should NOT tender their shares of common stock in the Tender Offer. Stockholders who have previously tendered their shares of common stock do not need to take any other actions unless they desire to withdraw their shares, which they may do in accordance with the procedures described in the letter of transmittal and other related Tender Offer documents that EAC has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). As of December 11, 2012, based on information provided by the depositary for the Tender Offer, a total of 4,436,983 shares of the Company's common stock have been tendered and not withdrawn.
Morrow & Co., LLC is acting as the information agent, and the depositary is Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company. For questions and information, call the information agent toll free at (800) 607-0088 (banks and brokers call collect at (203) 658-9400).
This press release is neither an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell shares of EAC common stock. The solicitation of offers to buy shares of EAC common stock will only be made pursuant to the Offer to Purchase, dated October 19, 2012 (as may be amended or supplemented), the related Letter of Transmittal, and other related documents that EAC has sent to its securityholders. The Tender Offer materials contain important information that should be read carefully before any decision is made with respect to the tender offer. Those materials have been distributed by EAC to EAC's securityholders at no expense to them. In addition, all of those materials (and all other offer documents filed with the SEC) are available at no charge on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov and from the information agent. Security holders of EAC are urged to read the Tender Offer documents and the other relevant materials before making any investment decision with respect to the tender offer because they will contain important information about the Tender Offer, the merger with IDE and the parties to the merger.
