The Offer will expire at 12:00 midnight, Eastern Time on March 24, 2014, unless and until Purchaser, in their sole discretion, shall have extended the period of time for which an Offer is open (such date and time, as extended the "Expiration Date").
The Purchaser does not intend to provide a subsequent offering period, but reserves the right to do so. The Purchaser reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to extend the period of time during which the Offer is open.
Tenders of Shares made pursuant to the Offer may be withdrawn at any time prior to the Expiration Date or any subsequent expiration date and may be withdrawn at any time after the Expiration Date or subsequent expiration date if the conditions to the Offer are not satisfied on the Expiration Date or subsequent expiration date. If all conditions to the Offer have been satisfied on the Expiration Date, the Purchaser will deposit with the Depositary the proceeds required to consummate the Offer and will promptly accept for payment and pay for all properly tendered Shares that have not been withdrawn. The Purchaser will not accept Shares for payment unless all conditions to the Offer have been satisfied or waived. Section 14(d)(5) of the Exchange Act requires that Shares tendered pursuant to the Offer may be withdrawn at any time after sixty days following February 19, 2012, the date of the Offer to Purchase.
For a withdrawal of Shares tendered to be effective, a written, telegraphic, telex or facsimile transmission notice of withdrawal must be timely received by the Depositary at one of its addresses set forth on the back cover of the Offer to Purchase. Any notice of withdrawal must specify the name of the person who tendered the Shares to be withdrawn, the number of Shares to be withdrawn and the name(s) in which the certificate(s) representing such Shares are registered, if different from that of the person who tendered such Shares. If certificates for Shares to be withdrawn have been delivered or otherwise identified to the Depositary, the name of the registered holder and the serial numbers shown on the particular certificates evidencing such Shares to be withdrawn must also be furnished to the Depositary prior to the physical release of the Shares to be withdrawn. The signature(s) on the notice of withdrawal must be guaranteed by an Eligible Institution (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) (except in the case of Shares tendered by an Eligible Institution). If Shares have been tendered pursuant to the procedures for book-entry transfer set forth in Section 2 of the Offer to Purchase, any notice of withdrawal must specify the name and number of the account at The Depository Trust Company ("DTC") to be credited with such withdrawn Shares and must otherwise comply with DTC's procedures.
In order for Shares to be validly tendered pursuant to the Offer, the Letter of Transmittal (or a facsimile thereof), properly completed and duly executed, together with any required signature guarantees, or an Agent's Message (as defined in the Offer to Purchase) in connection with a book-entry transfer of Shares, and any other documents required by the Letter of Transmittal, must be received by the Depositary at one of its addresses set forth in the Offer to Purchase on or prior to the Expiration Date or subsequent expiration date, and either (i) certificates representing tendered Shares must be received by the Depositary, or such Shares must be tendered pursuant to the procedure for book-entry transfer set forth below (and confirmation of receipt of such delivery must be received by the Depositary), in each case on or prior to the Expiration Date or subsequent expiration date, or (ii) the guaranteed delivery procedures set forth in the Offer to Purchase must be complied with. No alternative, conditional or contingent tenders will be accepted.
For purposes of the Offer, the Purchaser will be deemed to have accepted for payment, and thereby purchased, Shares validly tendered and not properly withdrawn prior to the Expiration Date or any subsequent expiration date when, as and if the Purchaser gives oral or written notice to the Depositary, as agent for the tendering stockholders, of the Purchaser's acceptance for payment of such Shares. Payment for Shares so accepted for payment will be made by the deposit of the purchase price therefor with the Depositary, which will act as agent for the tendering stockholders for the purpose of receiving such payment from the Purchaser and transmitting such payment to tendering stockholders. Rule 14e-1(c) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act") requires the Purchaser to promptly pay the consideration offered or return the securities deposited by or on behalf of stockholders promptly after the termination or withdrawal of the Offer. The Purchaser does not intend to provide a subsequent offering period under Rule 14d-11 of the Exchange Act but reserves the right to do so. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL INTEREST BE PAID ON THE OFFER PRICE.
The Purchaser expressly reserves the right, in its sole discretion, at any time and from time to time: (i) to extend the period of time during which the Offer is open which may delay acceptance for payment of, and the payment for, any Shares; (ii) to waive any of the conditions to the Offer; or (iii) to amend the Offer, including by increasing the consideration offered, by giving oral or written notice of extension, waiver or amendment to the Depositary and making a public announcement thereof. In addition, the Purchaser may extend the Offer for any period required by any rule, regulation, interpretation or position of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") or its staff or as required by applicable law.
The rights reserved by the Purchaser in the preceding paragraphs are in addition to Purchaser's rights pursuant to Section 13 of the Offer to Purchase. Any extension, waiver or amendment of the Offer will be followed as promptly as practicable by public announcement thereof, such announcement in the case of an extension to be issued no later than 9:00 a.m., Eastern Time, on the next business day after the previously scheduled expiration date. If the Purchaser makes a material change in the terms of the Offer or the information concerning the Offer or if the Purchaser waives a material condition of the Offer, the Purchaser will disseminate additional tender offer materials and extend the Offer if and to the extent required by Rules 14d-4(c), 14d-4(d)(1), 14d-6(c) and 14e-1 under the Exchange Act. The minimum period during which an offer must remain open following material changes in the terms of the Offer or information concerning the Offer, other than a change in the Offer Price or a change in percentage of securities sought or a change in any dealer's solicitation, will depend upon the facts and circumstances, including the relative materiality of the term or information changes. In the SEC's view, an offer should remain open for a minimum of five (5) business days from the date the material change is first published, sent or given to stockholders, and with respect to a change in Offer Price or a change in percentage of securities sought (other than increases of not more than two percent of the class of securities that are subject to Offer) or a change in any dealer's solicitation fee, a minimum grace period, consisting of ten (10) business days, is generally is required to allow for adequate dissemination to stockholders and for investor response. Accordingly, if prior to the Expiration Date or any subsequent expiration date, the Purchaser changes the Offer Price or changes the number of Shares sought (other than increases of not more than two percent of the class of securities that are subject to Offer) or changes a dealer solicitation fee , and if the Offer is scheduled to expire at any time earlier than the tenth (10th) business day from the date that notice of such change is first published, sent or given to stockholders, the Offer will be extended at least until the expiration of such tenth (10th) business day. For purposes of the Offer, a "business day" means any day other than a Saturday, Sunday or a federal holiday and consists of the time period from 12:01 a.m. through 12:00 midnight, Eastern time.
If the number of Shares tendered exceeds the number of Shares that Purchaser seeks to purchase pursuant to the Offer for those Shares, the Purchaser will take into account the number of Shares so tendered and take up and pay for as nearly as may be pro rata, disregarding fractions, according to the number of Shares tendered by each holder of Shares during the period during which the Offer remains open.
The receipt of cash in the Offer will be a taxable transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Each holder of Shares should consult its tax advisor about the particular tax consequences to such holder of exchanging Shares in the Offer (including the application and effect of any state, local or foreign income and other tax laws).
The Offer is not being made for the purpose of acquiring or influencing control of the business of Dynacq Healthcare, Inc. Funding for the purchase of the Shares will be provided from the Purchaser's existing working capital.
