London, England, Aug. 30, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As previously disclosed, EdtechX Holdings Acquisition Corp. II (“EdtechX” or the “Company”) has commenced the process of liquidating the Company’s trust account established in connection with its initial public offering and redeeming the Company’s Class A ordinary shares issued in such offering (“Public Shares”), in accordance with the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation (“Charter”). In accordance with the Charter, all outstanding Public Shares will be redeemed at a per share redemption price of approximately $10.34 per Public Share.
The Company commenced the liquidation of its trust account on August 15, 2023 and expects that the redemption of the Public Shares will occur on or about August 31, 2023. As of the close of business on such date, the Public Shares will be deemed cancelled and will represent only the right to receive redemption payments. The Company’s officers, directors and other stockholders who hold shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Founder Shares”) issued prior to the Company’s initial public offering, and the purchasers of warrants of the Company (“Private Warrants”) sold in the private placement that occurred simultaneously with the Company’s initial public offering, will not receive any proceeds from the Company’s trust account with respect to the Founder Shares or Private Warrants. The Company’s public warrants will expire worthless.
Record holders of Public Shares may redeem their shares by delivering their Public Shares to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent. Beneficial owners of Public Shares held in “street name” will not need to take any action in order to receive the redemption payments.
