Delwinds Insurance (DWIN) Shareholders Approve FOXO Deal

Delwinds Insurance (NYSE:DWIN) announced in an 8-K this morning that its shareholders approved its combination with insurtech firm FOXO at a special meeting September 14.

The SPAC had already tipped on Tuesday that 99.5% of its shares were redeemed in connection with the vote. But, this will not interfere with its deal’s closing as the transaction includes $22.5 million in convertible debt, a $40 million committed equity facility and an FPA to purchase up to 3,000,000 shares.

The parties now expect to close the transaction later today, after which the combined company’s shares are expected to trade under the symbol “FOXO” beginning on September 16.

The parties announced their $297 million combination earlier this year on February 24. Minneapolis, Minnesota-based FOXO Technologies utilizes AI-driven bioinformatics and technologies to develop and commercialize epigenetic biomarkers of health and aging for the life insurance industry.
