Steel Partners Holdings L.P. Announces Extension of Effective Date for Reverse/Forward Unit Split
NEW YORK, NY—January 8, 2024—Steel Partners Holdings L.P. (NYSE: SPLP), a Delaware limited partnership (the “Company” or “Steel Partners”), announced today that it will extend the effective date of its previously announced 1-for-12,500 reverse unit split (“Reverse Unit Split”) of its common units, no par value (the “Company Common Units”), followed immediately by a 12,500-for-1 forward unit split of the Company Common Units (the “Forward Unit Split,” and, together with the Reverse Unit Split, the “Reverse/Forward Unit Split”). The Reverse Unit Split is now expected to become effective as of 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on January 11, 2024, and immediately thereafter, the Forward Unit Split is expected to become effective as of 5:01 p.m. Eastern Time on January 11, 2024 (as it may be further extended, the “Effective Date”). The Company reserves the right to abandon, modify or extend the Reverse/Forward Unit Split at any time prior to the Effective Date.
The Company Common Units are expected to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis when the market opens on January 12, 2024. Certain holders of the Company’s Common Units who are employees will have their Company Common Units excluded from the Reverse/Forward Unit Split. If the Company further extends the Effective Date to a later date, the Company will disclose such extension via press release and/or a current report on Form 8-K prior to the Effective Date.
No fractional units will be issued in connection with the Reverse/Forward Unit Split. Instead, the Company will pay cash (without interest) to any unitholder who would be entitled to receive a fractional unit as a result of the Reverse/Forward Unit Split. Unitholders who hold fewer than 12,500 units immediately prior to the Reverse Unit Split will be paid in cash (without interest) an amount equal to such number of Company Common Units held multiplied by volume-weighted average price for the ten consecutive trading days immediately preceding the effective date of the Reverse/Forward Unit Split.
The Company’s transfer agent, Equiniti Trust Company, LLC, will serve as exchange and paying agent for the Reverse/Forward Unit Split. Registered unitholders holding pre-split Company Common Units electronically in book-entry form are not required to take any action to receive post-split units. Unitholders owning Common Units via a broker, bank, trust or other nominee will have their positions automatically adjusted to reflect the Reverse/Forward Unit Split, subject to such broker’s particular processes, and will not be required to take any action in connection with the Reverse/Forward Unit Split.
