August 11, 2016 -- /MARKETWIRED/ -- Snap Interactive, Inc. ("SNAP") (OTCQB: STVI) today announced that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent with A.V.M. Software, Inc. (d/b/a "Paltalk") ("Paltalk"), dated June 17, 2016, which describes the general terms and conditions of a proposed merger between Paltalk and Snap. Pursuant to the letter of intent, Paltalk would merge into a newly formed wholly owned subsidiary of SNAP, with Paltalk surviving as SNAP's wholly owned subsidiary. As consideration for the merger, SNAP would issue Paltalk's stockholders a number of shares of SNAP's common stock such that, following the completion of the transaction, Paltalk's stockholders would own a majority of SNAP's outstanding common stock on a fully-diluted basis.
The purpose of the proposed merger is to enlarge SNAP's product portfolio and scale of operations and to enhance liquidity to facilitate future growth. The consummation of the proposed merger is subject to, among other things, due diligence, the execution of a definitive agreement, necessary Board of Directors and stockholder approvals and other customary conditions. There can be no assurance that SNAP and Paltalk will consummate, or fulfill the necessary conditions to consummate, the proposed merger.
If the proposed merger is consummated, the issuance of the shares of SNAP's common stock would be made in accordance with an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) thereof and Regulation D thereunder. Such shares of SNAP common stock would not be registered under the Securities Act and could not be offered or sold without registration unless an exemption from such registration is available.
The information disclosed in this press release is being issued pursuant to and limited by Rule 135c promulgated under the Securities Act and does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, any shares of SNAP common stock.
