Under the revised merger agreement, each Halter share will be converted into 0.57 of a share of Friede Goldman. The closing under the revised merger agreement will also be subject to the arrangement o bank financing for the combined company on terms mutually agreeable to Halter and Friede Goldman.

The boards of directors of both companies have approved the revised merger terms, and the investment banking firms representing the two companies have delivered fairness opinions based on the revised terms.
