CareCloud Proposes Amendment to the Terms of its Series A Preferred Stock

SOMERSET, N.J., July 09, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareCloud, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CCLD CCLDO, CCLDP), a leader in healthcare technology solutions for medical practices and health systems nationwide, today announced that it has begun soliciting proxies from the holders (the “Series A Preferred Shareholders”) of its 11% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock”) to approve an amendment to the Company’s Certificate of Designations, Preferences and Rights of 11% Series A Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Stock Proposal”). Under the Preferred Stock Proposal, holders of Series A Preferred Stock would receive similar change of control protections to those afforded to holders of the Company’s 8.75% Series B Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred Stock (the “Series B Preferred Stock”). The future dividends of the Series A Preferred Stock would mirror that of the Series B Preferred Stock, and the Company would, going forward, have the right to exchange the shares of Series A Preferred Stock for shares of common stock at the liquidation preference value of $25 per share, plus any accrued and unpaid dividends.

Mahmud Haq, Founder and Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of CareCloud, stated, “We are confident that the changes we have proposed to the terms of our Series A Preferred Stock are in the best interest of our company and all classes of shareholders. These changes would best position our shareholders for a future transaction, if any, and enable us to continue to add value as we grow CareCloud.”

The Proxy. On July 8, 2024, the Company filed a Definitive Proxy Statement (the “Proxy”) relative to a Special Meeting of Series A Preferred Shareholders (the “Special Meeting”). This Proxy, in turn, is the result of the capital structure analysis that was performed by Citizens JMP, which was prompted by the Board’s exercise of its fiduciary duty in response to an unsolicited indication of interest to acquire the Company (as more fully discussed in our press releases dated May 9 and May 13, 2024).

The Proxy seeks approval of the Preferred Stock Proposal which, if approved by holders of two-thirds (66 2/3%) of the Series A Preferred Stock, would modify the terms of the Series A Preferred Stock by:

  (i) Change of Control Rights. Adding a change of control provision, as presently afforded to holders of Series B Preferred Stock, that would require an acquirer of a controlling interest in the Company’s common stock to redeem (if requested) the Series A Preferred Stock in exchange for shares of the Company’s common stock based on a $25 per share liquidation preference plus any accumulated and unpaid dividends (as opposed to the current terms which would permit an acquirer of the Company to leave the Series A Preferred Stock outstanding after a transaction as a security of a public reporting entity after paying any accumulated and unpaid dividends);
  (ii) Equivalent Dividend Rate. Changing the dividend to 8.75% per annum (consistent with the dividend of the Series B Preferred Stock); and
  (iii) Exchangeability. Introducing an exchange feature that would enable the Company, at its option, to cause the outstanding shares of the Series A Preferred Stock, at any time, to be automatically exchanged for a number of shares of common stock equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (1) the sum of (a) the $25.00 per share liquidation preference, and (b) the amount of any accumulated and unpaid dividends on such share of Series A Preferred Stock being exchanged by (2) the volume weighted average price of the shares of the Company’s common stock.

Ownership Interest of Directors and Named Officers. Directors and named executive officers of the Company beneficially owned the following percentages of the below listed classes of shares as of June 30, 2023 and 2024, respectively, and during this period, the ownership interests increased by the following percentages year-over-year:

Class 6/30/2023 6/30/2024 YoY % increase
Common Stock 34.7 % 38.3 % 10 %
Series A Preferred Stock 0 % 0 % 0 %
Series B Preferred Stock 1.8 % 2.7 % 50 %

Date and Timing.
The Special Meeting date is August 23, 2024. This is consistent with the minimum timeline required by the Securities and Exchange Commission, while affording approximately 40 days for the solicitation of proxies.
