I have old OrNda stock certificates. Do I need to exchange them for Tenet shares?

Q:

I have old OrNda stock certificates. Do I need to exchange them for Tenet shares?

A:

In January 1997, OrNda was acquired by Tenet Healthcare Corporation. As a result of that acquisition, each share of OrNda was converted into the right to receive 1.35 shares of Tenet stock. There is no longer a market for your OrNda shares.

The cash and Tenet stock to which you are entitled was turned over to the appropriate state authorities under the abandoned property laws.

Please contact the states in which you resided in prior to 1997.
