BYNORDIC ACQUISITION CORPORATION CONFIRMS FUNDING AND EXTENSION OF DEADLINE TO COMPLETE INITIAL BUSINESS COMBINATION
New York/Malmö, Aug. 10, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — byNordic Acquisition Corporation (NASDAQ: BYNO) (the “Company”) today announced that its stockholders approved the proposals at the previously announced special meeting of stockholders of the Company (the “Special Meeting”), held at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time on August 10, 2023.
The Special Meeting was held for the purpose of considering and voting on, among other proposals, a proposal to extend (the “Extension”) the date by which the Company must consummate an initial business combination from August 11, 2023 (the “Original Termination Date”) to February 12, 2024 (the “Initial Extended Date”) or such earlier date as determined by the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”), in its sole discretion, and to allow the Company by resolution of the Board without another stockholder vote, to elect to extend the Initial Extended Date by one additional month, for a total of six additional months, until August 12, 2024 (each such monthly extension, the “Additional Extension Month” and the final termination date the “Final Termination Date”), unless the closing of a business combination shall have occurred prior thereto.
In connection with the the Special Meeting, holders of 13,663,728 publicly held shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “public shares”) of BYNO properly exercised their right to redeem their shares (and did not withdraw their redemption) for cash at a redemption price of approximately $10.61 per share, for an aggregate redemption amount of approximately $144,972,154.08, subject to final calculation by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company.
Additional Sponsor Contributions to Trust Account
In connection with the approval of the Extension at the Special Meeting, the Company’s sponsor, Water by Nordic AB, a Swedish limited liability company (the “Sponsor”), or its designees deposited into the trust $625,000 (a “Contribution”, and the Sponsor or its designee making such Contribution, a “Contributor”).
If the Initial Extended Date is extended at the sole discretion of the Board, beyond February 12, 2024, the Contributor will deposit into the trust account $105,000 for each Additional Extension Month. The initial Contribution will occur on the Original Termination Date. The Contribution for the initial Additional Extension Month will occur on the Initial Extended Date and the Contribution for each Additional Extension Month thereafter will occur on the 11th day of each subsequent calendar month until (but excluding) the Final Termination Date (each such date, a “Contribution Date”).
The Company has not asked the Sponsor to reserve for, nor has the Company independently verified whether the Sponsor will have sufficient funds to satisfy, any such Contributions.
If a Contributor fails to make a Contribution by the applicable Contribution Date, the Company will liquidate and dissolve as soon as practicable after such date and in accordance with the Company’s charter. The Contributions will constitute loans to the Company evidenced by one or more non-interest bearing, unsecured promissory notes issued by the Company to the Contributor and will be repayable by the Company upon consummation of an initial business combination. If the Company does not consummate an initial business combination by the Final Termination Date, any such promissory notes will be repaid only from funds held outside of the trust account or will be forfeited, eliminated or otherwise forgiven. Any Contribution is conditioned on the approval of the requisite proposals at the Special Meeting and the implementation of the Extension, and with respect to any Additional Extension Month, on the approval of such extension by the Board. No Contribution will occur if such proposals are not approved or the Extension is not implemented. If the Company has consummated an initial business combination or announced its intention to wind up prior to any Contribution Date, any obligation to make Contributions will terminate.
