SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matterport, Inc. (“Matterport” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: MTTR), the leading spatial data company driving the digital transformation of the built world, today announced that the Company will redeem all of its outstanding warrants (the “Public Warrants”) to purchase shares of the Company’s Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), that were issued under the Warrant Agreement entered into between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (“Continental”) on December 15, 2020, as amended by that certain First Amendment to Warrant Agreement, by and among the Company, Continental and American Stock Transfer & Trust Company (“AST”), dated as of July 22, 2021 (as amended, the “Warrant Agreement”), as part of the units sold in the Company’s initial public offering (the “IPO”) and that remain outstanding at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on January 14, 2022 (the “Redemption Date”) for a redemption price of $0.01 per Public Warrant (the “Redemption Price”). As of December 15, 2021, there were 6,900,000 Public Warrants issued and outstanding. Warrants to purchase Common Stock that were issued under the Warrant Agreement in a private placement simultaneously with the IPO and that are still held by the initial holders thereof or their permitted transferees are not subject to this redemption.
Under the terms of the Warrant Agreement, Matterport is entitled to redeem all of the outstanding Public Warrants if the last sales price of shares of Common Stock has been at least $18.00 per share on each of twenty trading days within a thirty-day trading period ending on the third business day prior to the date on which notice of a redemption is given. At the direction of the Company, AST has delivered a notice of redemption to each of the registered holders of the outstanding Public Warrants.
The Public Warrants may be exercised by the holders thereof until 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date to purchase fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock underlying such warrants, at the exercise price of $11.50 per share. Any Public Warrants that remain unexercised at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date will be void and no longer exercisable, and the holders of those Public Warrants will be entitled to receive only the redemption price of $0.01 per warrant.
“We are pleased to complete another step in the merger transaction with Gores Holdings VI, which is the call for redemption of the publicly held warrants,” said JD Fay, Chief Financial Officer of Matterport. “If all of the Public Warrants are exercised on or prior to the Redemption Date, we will add approximately $79 million to the balance sheet, which is additive to the $640 million of gross proceeds raised in the closing of the merger in July 2021.”
None of the Company, its board of directors or employees has made or is making any representation or recommendation to any holder of the Public Warrants as to whether to exercise or refrain from exercising any Public Warrants.
The shares of Common Stock underlying the Public Warrants have been registered by the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and are covered by a registration statement filed on Form S-1 with, and declared effective by, the Securities and Exchange Commission (Registration No. 333-258936).
