ACBA Extends Merger Vote

Ace Global Business Acquisition Ltd. (ACBA) announces extension and has added  $0.099 per share to trust. This is the first of three possible extensions from April 9, 2022 to July 8, 2022. The SPAC has a deal announcement with Hong Kong-based DayDayCook,  a recipe hub founded by former HSBC banker-turned-online influencer Norma Chu.

FMAC Closes Starry Merger after Some Major Tweaks

FirstMark Horizon Acquisition Corp. (FMAC) closed its merger with Starry, which will trade tomorrow on the NYSE as STRY. The transaction implies a pro forma enterprise value of $1.76 billion–up from $1.65 billion at the time of the original announcement–with gross proceeds of $176 million. FMAC made significant changes to the deal. The deal’s $130 million PIPE is now priced at $7.50 per share and Tiger Global agreed to invest an additional $10 million at this price, bringing the total PIPE to $140 million made up of 18.7M shares. The $300M minimum cash condition was also waived.

Reducing the PIPE price post-vote is a move we don’t see very often, but likely necessary given redemptions (~91%) and waiver of the indebtedness condition, meaning that PIPE investors were no longer obligated to participate in the original PIPE.

Starry provides wireless internet to consumers at gigabit speeds using narrow-wave technology.
