As per the terms of the Merger Agreement, following the closing Fushi Copperweld stockholders will be entitled to receive $9.50 in cash for each share of Fushi Copperweld common stock that they hold, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes, except for shares held in treasury of the Company or owned by the buyer group, which will be cancelled without consideration.

The merger will result in Fushi Copperweld becoming a privately-held company, and its common stock will no longer be listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market.
