Weyland Tech Provides Update Regarding Its Spin-Off of Weyland AtoZ Pay

Weyland Tech Provides Update Regarding Its Spin-Off of Weyland AtoZ Pay

New York, NY, Dec. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE — Weyland Tech Inc. (OTCQX: WEYL) (“Weyland” or the “Company”) announced today that, after reviewing the beneficial owner lists submitted by banks/brokers in connection with its Weyland AtoZ Pay Inc. (“WAI”) spin-off, the company has decided to distribute the WAI spin-off shares via book-entry statement from its transfer agent, in lieu of stock certificate form as was originally intended. From a shareholder perspective, book-entry account statements from the transfer agent are the functional equivalent of stock certificates. The company believes that switching to a book-entry statement delivery method will expedite the delivery of the WAI spin-off shares to beneficial owners and bank/brokers, and also streamline the process for banks/brokers in connection with their handling of objecting beneficial owner (“OBO”) and retirement account spin-off shares, which they will receive directly.  

In light of the above change in issuance method, WAI spin-off shares are being issued and delivered as follows:

  1. All WAI spin-off shares are being issued via book-entry statements from the company’s transfer agent, Nevada Agency and Transfer Company (“Spin-Off Account Statements”).
  1. For registered shareholders (i.e., those that do not hold their shares in “street name” through a bank/broker) with a valid email address on record with the transfer agent, they shall receive their Spin-Off Account Statements from the transfer agent via email. U.S.-based registered shareholders who do not have a valid email address on file with the transfer agent will receive their account statements via U.S. mail. Non-U.S.-based registered shareholders who do not have a valid email address on record with the transfer agent will receive their Spin-Off Account Statements via suitable alternative delivery methods.
  1. Spin-off entitlements for OBOs reported by each bank/broker, are now being aggregated and, therefore, the transfer agent will issue a single Spin-Off Account Statement in the name of each bank/broker for the aggregate number of OBO shares reported in their respective beneficial owner list. These Spin-Off Account Statements will be delivered via email by the transfer agent directly to each bank/broker. 
  1. For retirement accounts reported by each bank/broker, the transfer agent will issue separate Spin-Off Account Statements for each retirement account reported in their respective beneficial owner lists. These Spin-Off Account Statements will likewise be delivered via email by the transfer agent directly to each bank/broker.
  1. For non-objecting beneficial owners (“NOBOs”) reported by each bank/broker, the transfer agent will issue a separate Spin-Off Account Statement in the name of each NOBO reported in each bank/broker beneficial owner list. U.S.-based NOBOs who do not have a valid email address associated with their account in their bank’s/broker’s beneficial owner list will receive their account statements via U.S. mail. Non-U.S.-based NOBOs who do not have a valid email address associated with their account in their bank’s/broker’s beneficial owner list will receive their Spin-Off Account Statements via suitable alternative delivery methods. The company is requesting that banks/brokers submit directly to the company, via email to spin-off@weyland-tech.com, the email addresses for NOBOs on their beneficial owner lists for which they have a valid email address, so the company can maximize the number of NOBOs who can receive their Spin-Off Account Statements via expedited email delivery. 

If you hold your WEYL shares in “street name” through a bank/broker and you do not receive your Spin-Off Account Statement by December 28, 2018, the Company will make available in the “Investor” section of its website a “Notice of Failure to Receive Spin-Off Account Statement” form which will allow you to notify the Company accordingly. We urge all such shareholders who do not receive their Spin-Off Account Statement to utilize this form when notifying the company. 

If any banks/brokers or shareholders have any questions regarding the above spin-off delivery procedures, they can direct those inquiries to the contact details below:
