SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. and LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Snapfish, LLC (“Snapfish”), premier personalized photo service, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Snapfish Merger Sub, Inc. (“Purchaser”), successfully completed its tender offer for all the outstanding shares of common stock (“Shares”) of CafePress Inc. (NASDAQ: PRSS) (“CafePress” or the “Company”) at a price of $1.48 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest but subject to any required withholding taxes. CafePress is a leading retailer of engaging merchandise and personalized gifts.
As of the expiration of the tender offer at one minute after 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on November 8, 2018, the depositary for the tender offer advised Purchaser that 14,235,152 Shares were validly tendered and not withdrawn in the tender offer, representing approximately 82.9% of the currently outstanding Shares (not including 90,620 Shares delivered through Notices of Guaranteed Delivery, representing approximately 0.5% of the Shares outstanding). The minimum tender condition as well as all other conditions to the tender offer were satisfied. As a result, Purchaser has accepted for payment and will promptly pay for all validly tendered Shares.
Snapfish intends to cause Purchaser to be merged with and into CafePress under Section 251(h) of the General Corporation Law as promptly as practicable today, with CafePress continuing as the surviving corporation. As a result of the completion of the merger, all remaining eligible Shares will be canceled and converted into the right to receive $1.48 per share in cash, without interest but subject to any required withholding taxes, the same price that was paid in the tender offer (eligible Shares exclude those for which holders properly demanded appraisal under Delaware law and those held by CafePress, Snapfish, Purchaser or any other subsidiary of Snapfish). As a result of the merger, CafePress common stock will no longer be traded on The Nasdaq Global Select Market or any other public market.
