Under the terms of the merger agreement, Proginet's stockholders will receive $1.15 in cash, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes, for each share of Proginet common stock they hold. Outstanding options will be canceled at closing, and the option holders will receive the amount by which the per share merger price exceeds the option exercise price, if any, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes.
Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of certain conditions set forth in the merger agreement attached as Annex A to the Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed by Proginet with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 9, 2010 and summarized in such Definitive Proxy Statement, Proginet expects the merger contemplated by the merger agreement to close on or about September 15, 2010.
