Ready Capital and Owens Realty Mortgage Announce Completion of Merger
07/27/2018

New York, New York, March 29, 2019 / PRNewswire / – Ready Capital Corporation (NYSE: RC) (“Ready Capital”) and Owens Realty Mortgage, Inc. (NYSE American: ORM) (“ORM”) jointly announced today that they have completed the previously announced merger pursuant to the terms of the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of November 7, 2018, by and among Ready Capital, ORM and ReadyCap Merger Sub, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly owned subsidiary of Ready Capital (the “Merger Agreement”). As of this morning, ORM ceased to be publicly traded and its common stock was suspended from trading on the NYSE American. The combined company will conduct business under the name “Ready Capital Corporation” and will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “RC.”

Each outstanding share of common stock, par value $0.01 per share, of ORM (“ORM Common Stock”) (other than shares held by Ready Capital or Merger Sub or by any wholly owned subsidiary of Ready Capital, Merger Sub or ORM, which were automatically cancelled and retired and ceased to exist) was converted into the right to receive from Ready Capital 1.441 newly issued shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of Ready Capital (the “Ready Capital Common Stock”). No fractional shares of Ready Capital Common Stock were issued in the merger, and the value of any fractional interests to which a former holder of ORM Common Stock is otherwise entitled will be paid in cash.

 

In addition, pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the size of Ready Capital’s board of directors was increased from six to seven members upon the closing of the merger, and Gilbert E. Nathan, an independent director of ORM, was appointed to Ready Capital’s board of directors.

“With today’s closing, we reach another important milestone toward our vision of building a full service platform with scale.  The growing breadth of the combined businesses will continue to allow us to effectively deploy capital across attractive asset classes and economic cycles.  This investment approach, which emphasizes return consistency and downside protection, will provide all our shareholders with the most attractive risk-adjusted returns over the long-term,” stated Thomas Capasse, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.
