Story continues below

On May25, 2018, Fairmount Santrol Holdings Inc. (“Fairmount Santrol”) held a special meeting of stockholders to consider and vote upon the following matters:

(1) a proposal to adopt the Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of December11, 2017, by and among Fairmount Santrol, SCR-Sibelco NV, a privately-owned Belgian company, Unimin Corporation, a Delaware corporation (“Unimin”), Bison Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and direct wholly owned subsidiary of Unimin (“Merger Sub”), and Bison Merger Sub I, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and direct wholly owned subsidiary of Unimin (as it may be amended from time to time, the “Merger Agreement”), providing for, among other things, the merger (the “merger”) of Merger Sub into Fairmount Santrol with Fairmount Santrol continuing as the surviving corporation and a direct wholly owned subsidiary of Unimin (the “Merger Proposal”);
(2) a non-binding, advisory proposal to approve the compensation that may become payable to Fairmount Santrol’s named executive officers in connection with the closing of the merger (the “Compensation Proposal”); and
(3) a proposal to adjourn the special meeting, if necessary or appropriate, including to solicit additional proxies, if there are not sufficient votes to approve the Merger Proposal (the “Adjournment Proposal”).

At the special meeting 179,327,012 shares of Fairmount Santrol’s common stock, representing approximately 79.70% of the outstanding shares of Fairmount Santrol’s common stock entitled to vote as of the record date for the special meeting, were represented in person or by proxy, which constituted a quorum.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

This Current Report on Form 8-K contains statements which, to the extent they are not statements of historical or present fact, constitute “forward-looking” statements within the meaning of Section21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. All forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated or implied in forward looking statements are described in Unimin’s registration statement on Form S-4, as amended (File No. 333-224228), Fairmount Santrol’s Form 10-K under the heading “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information”, as well as the information included in Fairmount Santrol’s Current Reports on Form 8-K and other factors that are set forth in management’s discussion and analysis of Fairmount Santrol’s most recently filed reports with the SEC. Additional important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by forward-looking statements include risks and uncertainties relating to: the merger not being timely completed, if completed at all; prior to the completion of the merger, Fairmount Santrol’s and/or Unimin’s respective businesses experiencing disruptions due to transaction-related uncertainty or other factors making it more difficult to maintain relationships with employees, business partners or governmental entities; the industry may be subject to future regulatory or legislative actions that could adversely affect Fairmount Santrol’s and/or Unimin’s respective businesses; and the parties being unable to successfully implement integration strategies. While Fairmount Santrol and/or Unimin may elect to update forward-looking statements at some point in the future, Fairmount Santrol and Unimin specifically disclaim any obligation to do so, even if estimates change and, therefore, you should not rely on these forward-looking statements as representing our views as of any date subsequent to today.
