Item 8.01 Other Events.
Access Plans, Inc. (OTCBB: APNC), a leading membership benefits marketing company, announced that the estimated amount of its previously announced special dividend is $0.08 per share. The special dividend will be payable on May 31, 2012 to the record holders of Access Plans common stock on May 30, 2012, prior to the closing of Access Plans merger with Affinity Insurance Services, Inc., a subsidiary of Aon Corporation. The Ex-dividend date will be May 25, 2012. The exact amount of the special dividend will be determined on May 29, 2012. As previously disclosed, the merger is expected to close during the second quarter of 2012 and is subject to various closing conditions.
Access Plans also announced that the estimated per share merger consideration that will be payable to Access Plans shareholders in connection with the merger is $3.28. The exercise of previously issued options to acquire Access Plans Stock increased the number of shares outstanding and, as a result, lowered the per share estimated merger consideration from the previously announced estimate of $3.30, while the $360,000 in cash received as a result of the option exercises increased the amount available for the special dividend. The press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein in its entirety.
