AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE/AMEX: FPP) today announced that after consultation with the NYSE Amex exchange (the "Exchange"), it has elected to rescind the previously announced record date for the pending Warrant Dividend until such time that the previously filed registration statement for the new warrants is declared effective.
In order for FieldPoint to complete the distribution of the Warrant Dividend, a registration statement covering the exercise of the Warrant and issuance of the underlying common stock must first be declared effective by the SEC. The Company filed its registration statement on Form S-3 on December 29, 2011; however, it appears that the registration statement will be reviewed by the SEC, and no prediction can be made when it might be declared effective by the Commission.
As a result of the uncertainty surrounding when the distribution of the Warrant Dividend will be completed, the Exchange has requested that the Company rescind the previously set record date, which the Company has done today.
A new record date for the Warrant Dividend will be set and announced once the registration statement has been declared effective by the SEC and the distribution of the Warrant Dividend can be completed.
