EdtechX Holdings Re-Files Prospectus with a Change

Sep 25, 2018 INTEL by SPACInsider

EdtechX Holdings Acquisition Corp., re-filed their $55 million SPAC IPO today, with one change to their Crescent Term.

Previously, EdtechX’s term, regarding adjustment to the per-share redemption trigger, stated they would adjust the price to be equal to 240% of the market value of their common stock based on the 20-day trading period prior to the day on which they consummate their business combination.  This has been adjusted to 165%.

If you recall, EdtechX’s redemption trigger for the warrants to be sold in the IPO is $16.50, so now the 165% adjustment for any new capital raises done at combination below $9.50, will reflect an equal value to the original trigger.

If you would like a more detailed explanation of how the Crescent Term works, you can read about it here in the original post regarding EdtechX’s initial filing.

The rest of EdtechX’s terms remain the same, but as a reminder, a summary has been provided below.
