OneSpaWorld Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: OSW), the pre-eminent global provider of health and wellness products and services on board cruise ships and in destination resorts around the world, today issued a statement in response to a correction published today by Stifel to a research report it had issued yesterday. The inaccurate report was referenced by Deep Field Asset Management LLC in a press release issued earlier today:
"We are pleased Stifel has issued a correction to clarify material inaccuracies and misunderstandings in their report published June 8. Stifel now acknowledges that OneSpaWorld does not have enough cash to pay down its revolver at June 30 and remain solvent. Their updated report also states that the roughly 70 days of cash available on OSW’s balance sheet exists assuming no pay down of our revolver to remain in compliance with our loan agreements. Stifel also acknowledges that while OSW has considered alternative financing options, it does not have any alternative financing in place. Stifel concludes that they encourage the approval of the private placement given the current environment versus an alternative plan that could take too long to execute. The $75 million equity financing is the best financing option available and Deep Field’s unfounded claim that it would be easy to vote down this funding and quickly raise the required capital on improved terms remains reckless given the circumstances."
Headquartered in Nassau, Bahamas, OneSpaWorld is one of the largest health and wellness services companies in the world. OneSpaWorld’s distinguished spas offer guests a comprehensive suite of premium health, wellness, fitness and beauty services, treatments, and products currently onboard 175 cruise ships and at 68 destination resorts around the world.
