Steel's obligation to complete the tender offer is subject to the tender of at least 30.0% of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock on a fully-diluted basis. If at least 30.0%, but less than 44.0%, of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock on a fully-diluted basis are tendered in the tender offer, Steel is obligated to purchase from the Company newly issued shares of the Company's common stock at the same price as paid in the tender offer so that Steel's interest in the Company following such transaction will constitute the 44.0% threshold. Upon completion of the tender offer, Steel will be able to appoint two of the Company's four directors. Further, a new president and chief executive officer will be appointed to replace Michael D. Heil, who currently holds the position.
