Redemptions whittled Mobiv’s IPO share pool of 10,005,000 down to 195,992 through the vote. But, on September 27, Mobiv provided an update exhorting redeemers to change their decisions, noting that its ex-redemptions count was 142,992.
So, the call worked for 53,000 shares. These holders too will now be beneficiaries of the deal’s bonus pool of 2,500,000 shares that will now be distributed at a 12-to-1 ratio for each non-redeemed share.
This should help the combined company to avoid a low-float situation and the two sides further increased potential liquidity this week by releasing 100,000 of Mobiv’s promote shares from lock-up restrictions.
The combined company’s shares and warrants are expected to begin trading on the Nasdaq under the symbols “SVMH” and “SVMHW” after the deal closes next week. The two sides originally announced their $195 million combination in March.
