Seanergy: Approval of Listing on Nasdaq for Spin-Off

Seanergy announced that the application of United Maritime Corporation (“United”) to list its common shares on the Nasdaq Capital Market has been approved.

In addition, the registration statement on Form 20-F filed by United in connection with its spin-off from Seanergy has been declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).

Through United, Seanergy intends to effect a spin-off of the Company’s oldest Capesize vessel, the M/V Gloriuship. United is expected to adopt a diversified business model, with investments across various maritime sectors.

Seanergy shareholders do not need to take any action to receive United shares to which they are entitled, and do not need to pay any consideration or surrender or exchange Seanergy common shares. Seanergy common shareholders will receive one United common share for every 118 Seanergy common shares held at the close of business on June 28, 2022, the record date for the distribution which coincides with the previously-announced record date for Seanergy’s cash dividend of $0.025 per share for the first quarter of 2022. The distribution of United common shares is expected to be made on or around July 5, 2022. United common shares are expected to commence trading on a standalone basis on the Nasdaq Capital Market on the first trading day after the date of distribution, under the ticker “USEA”.

Nasdaq has established an ex-distribution date for the distribution of United common shares of June 27, 2022. Beginning on that date, Seanergy shares will trade without an entitlement by the purchaser of such shares to United common shares distributed in connection with the spin-off. A “when-issued” trading market in United common shares will not be established, and United common shares will not begin trading on a standalone basis until the trading day following the date of distribution.

Fractional common shares of United will not be distributed. Instead, the distribution agent will aggregate fractional common shares into whole shares, sell such whole shares in the open market at prevailing rates promptly after United’s common shares commence trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market, and distribute the net cash proceeds from the sales pro rata to each holder who would otherwise have been entitled to receive fractional common shares in the distribution.

United has filed a registration statement on Form 20-F pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 with the SEC, which includes a more detailed description of the terms of the spin-off. A copy of the registration statement on Form 20-F is available at www.sec.gov.
