Quinpario Acquisition Corp. 2 Realigns Ownership

ST. LOUIS, Missouri, January 28, 2015 /Globe Newswire/-- Quinpario Acquisition Corp. 2 (NASDAQ: QPACU) (the "Company" or “Issuer”), a blank-check company formed for the purpose of acquiring or merging with one or more businesses or entities, announced today that Jeffry N. Quinn, the managing member of Quinpario Partners 2, LLC, the Company’s sponsor, filed a Form-4 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on January 27, 2015 reporting that Quinpario Partners 2, LLC forfeited 1,312,500 shares of the Company to the Issuer at no cost. The forfeiture resulted from the underwriters’ election not to exercise the over-allotment option in connection with the Company’s initial public offering, as described in the Issuer's Registration Statement on Form S-1. Due to an external error regarding the Issuer’s ticker symbol, this forfeiture was erroneously reported by some external sources as being a forfeiture of shares of Jason Industries Inc. (NASDAQ: JASN).
