DiamondHead Holdings Corp. (DHHC) Shareholders Approve Great Southern Homes Deal
DiamondHead Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:DHHC) announced in an 8-K this morning that its shareholders approved its combination with Great Southern Homes at a special meeting March 23.
Only 109,426 shares were redeemed in the connection with the vote, but DiamondHead has seen about 87% redemptions in total across all previous votes, leaving it with about $43.9 million in its trust.
The parties have not yet released a proposed timeline for closing the transaction, but DiamondHead announced on March 22 that it had secured up to $155 million in PIPE and convertible note financing that could have gotten it over the top of its $125 million minimum cash condition.

The combined company is expected to trade on the Nasdaq under the name United Homes Group and the new ticker symbol “UHG” following close.
