When will this change be effective?
Effective December 29, 2021, New Era Cap Co., Inc. will merge into New Era Cap, LLC by operation of law.
Why did New Era change its name?

This is part of a multi-year effort to bring better alignment and simplification amongst its various affiliates and reflects the ongoing global expansion of the New Era brand across multiple markets.
Has ownership of New Era changed?
The business operations of New Era, its management, and its current majority ownership will be materially unchanged with all existing controlling owners and management remaining the same.
