|Includes: Premier Exhibitions, Inc. (PRXI)

Premier Exhibitions (NASDAQ:PRXI)

From the 10-Q, dated 10/15/2012:

On October 15, 2012, the Company announced that it had entered into a non-binding letter of intent with an entity representing a group of individuals (the "Consortium") working to effect a purchase of the stock of RMS Titanic, Inc., for educational, regional economic development and cultural purposes for a price of $189 million. The letter of intent is confidential, and is subject to the parties negotiating binding purchase agreements, obtaining requisite financing commitments and other approvals. The letter of intent represents the first formalization of the process in which the Company and the Consortium seek to combine efforts to place the Titanic assets in a permanent home and to monetize the assets for the benefit of the Company's shareholders. The execution of the letter of intent does not guarantee that a purchase will be consummated with the Consortium. The letter of intent is designed to allow the Consortium the opportunity to secure its financing sources, prepare to handle and house the collection of artifacts and to continue its efforts to establish public and private support for the venture.

The number of shares outstanding of the registrant's common stock on October 11, 2012 was 48,017,413
