ALPHARETTA, Ga. & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Priority Technology Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: PRTH) (“Priority” or the “Company”) today announces that its Registration Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) registering shares of common stock issuable as part of Priority’s previously announced offer to exchange newly issued shares of its common stock for its currently outstanding warrants (the “Exchange Offer”), and a related consent solicitation (the “Consent Solicitation”), has become effective.
The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation will be open until 11:59 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, on February 12, 2019 (as the same may be further extended, the “Expiration Date”). Tendered warrants may be withdrawn by holders at any time prior to the Expiration Date.

King & Co., Inc. has been appointed the Information Agent for the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation, and American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC has been appointed the Exchange Agent. Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP is serving as legal counsel to Priority and Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP is serving as legal counsel to Cowen.

A registration statement on Form S-4 relating to the securities to be issued in the Exchange Offer has become effective.
This announcement is for informational purposes only and shall not constitute an offer to purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell the Warrants or an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any shares of common stock in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful before registration or qualification under the laws of any such state. The Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation are being made only through the Schedule TO and Prospectus/Offer to Exchange, and the complete terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer and Consent Solicitation are set forth in the Schedule TO and Prospectus/Offer to Exchange.
