Universal Technical Institute Inc (UTI): Coliseum Capital Purchases Preferred Shares; Shackelton Appointed to Board

Page 1 of 15

A newly amended 13D filing with the US SEC revealed that Christopher Shackelton and Adam Gray‘s Coliseum Capital had signed a Securities Purchase Agreement with Universal Technical Institute Inc (NYSE:UTI), upon which the company agreed to sell to the fund 700,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock at a total purchase price of $70 million. Series A Preferred Stock can be converted into Common Shares, but only under certain conditions, such as stockholder approval (NYSE standards) and approval of the applicable educational regulatory agencies, without these conditions conversion is also possible if it would lead to the fund’s aggregate holding of no more than 4.99% of the outstanding stock. Universal Technical Institute (NYSE:UTI) also agreed to appoint Christopher Shackelton to its board of directors. After entering Securities Purchase Agreement, the company and the fund entered into Registration Rights Agreement, as well, in order to grant the fund certain piggyback registration rights covering the purchased shares. The new filing also showed that Coliseum Capital owns 4.86 million shares of Universal Technical Institute (NYSE:UTI), which account for 19% of the outstanding common stock, and include common shares “that are held directly by Christopher Shackelton, his spouse and trusts for the benefit of his descendants”. This represents an addition to the stake, as the fund previously held 3.6 million common shares as reported in its latest 13F filing (for the end of March).
