Mudrick Capital (MUDS) Announces Shareholders Approve Combination


Mudrick Capital (MUDS) Announces Shareholders Approve Combination

May 29, 2020 INTEL by Kristi Marvin

Mudrick Capital Acquisition Corp. (MUDS), released the results of their shareholder vote this morning to complete their business combination with Hycroft Mining Corporation, and as expected, this combination was approved.  Unfortunately, the most important information, the redemption results, were not included in the filing.  However, the good news is, we get to move another SPAC to the “completed” column with Mudrick marking the 14th combination to complete in 2020.

Keep in mind that Mudrick did not include a right in its IPO unit.  Rights tends to provide much needed liquidity if there are significant redemptions of the share at the completion vote.  So if (big IF) Mudrick did have a lot of redemptions, watch out for a low float situation.

No word yet on a closing date, but look for a press release shortly.
