NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–EG Acquisition Corp. (the “Company” or “EG”) (NYSE: EGGF), a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) sponsored by EnTrust Global and GMF Capital, today announced that at a special meeting of EG stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) held yesterday, EG’s stockholders voted in favor of the proposed business combination (the “Business Combination”) with LGM Enterprises, LLC (dba flyExclusive) (“flyExclusive” or “LGM”), a leading provider of premium private jet charter experiences, and the related proposals. Approximately 97% of the shares that voted on the Business Combination voted in favor of it, representing approximately 90% of the outstanding shares of EG’s common stock. EG also announced that its intention to transfer (the “Transfer”) the listing of its Class A common stock and public warrants from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) to the NYSE American LLC (the “NYSE American”) in connection with the Business Combination has been delayed, subject to ongoing review by the NYSE American of its listing application. The Company had previously announced that the Transfer would occur on or about December 20, 2023, subject to the satisfaction or waiver, as applicable, of all closing conditions in connection with the Business Combination (including the fulfillment of all applicable NYSE American listing requirements) and the authorization from NYSE to list the shares of flyExclusive (the post-combination company) on the NYSE American, in connection the Business Combination. That timing has been delayed pending satisfaction or waiver of the aforementioned closing conditions. The Company’s Class A common stock and public warrants will continue to trade on the NYSE under the symbols “EGGF” and “EGGFW,” respectively, until and subject to the consummation of the Business Combination.
In light of the foregoing, the Company also announced today that its previously announced annual meeting (the “Annual Meeting”), for the purpose of considering and voting on, among other proposals, a proposal to extend the date (the “Extension Amendment Proposal”) by which it must consummate an initial business combination, will be postponed from 12:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 22, 2023 to 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 27, 2023 (the “Postponement”).
The record date for determining the Company stockholders entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the Annual Meeting remains the close of business on December 4, 2023 (the “Record Date”). Stockholders as of the Record Date can vote, even if they have subsequently sold their shares. Stockholders who have previously submitted their proxies or otherwise voted and who do not want to change their vote need not take any action. Stockholders who have not yet done so are encouraged to vote as soon as possible.
As a result of the Postponement, the previously disclosed deadline of December 20, 2023 (two business days before the Annual Meeting, as originally scheduled) for delivery of redemption requests from the Company’s stockholders to the Company’s transfer agent has been extended to December 22, 2023 (two business days before the postponed Annual Meeting). Stockholders who wish to withdraw their previously submitted redemption requests may ask to do so prior to the postponed Annual Meeting by requesting that the Company’s transfer agent return such shares by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 22, 2023. Stockholders who do not wish to withdraw their previously submitted redemption requests (either in connection with the Special Meeting or the upcoming Annual Meeting) need not take any further action. If any stockholder previously tendered its EG shares for redemption in connection with the Special Meeting held on December 18, 2023, such stockholder’s shares will automatically be deemed to have been tendered for redemption in connection with the Annual Meeting, and no further action will be required for you to redeem your shares in connection with the Annual Meeting.
