No payments will be made with respect to any of the Company's outstanding warrants or to the shares owned by the Company's initial stockholders prior to the initial public offering. The Company expects to make a second, final liquidating liquidation distribution to the public stockholders as soon as practicable.
Energy Infrastructure is a blank check company that was formed for the specific purpose of consummating a business combination. Energy Infrastructure raised net proceeds of approximately $209.3 million, after partial exercise of the underwriter's over-allotment option, through its initial public offering consummated in July 2006.
