Live Oak Acquisition Corp. (LOAK) Shareholders Approve Danimer Scientific Deal

Dec 28, 2020 INTEL by Kristi Marvin

Live Oak Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:LOAK) announced in an 8-K this afternoon that its shareholders approved its combination with Danimer Scientific, a company creating environmentally responsible and natural alternative solutions to traditional petroleum-based resins. The Company’s signature polymer, NodaxÔ PHA (polyhydroxyalkanoate), is a 100% biodegradable, renewable, and sustainable plastic produced using canola oil as a primary feedstock. NodaxÔ PHA is the first PHA polymer to be certified as marine degradable, the highest standard of biodegradability, which verifies the material will fully degrade in ocean water without leaving behind harmful microplastics.

Redemption details were not released, but upon completion of the transaction, the Company and Danimer expect the Business Combination to close on December 29, 2020. On December 30, 2020, the combined company’s common stock and warrants are expected to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the new ticker symbols “DNMR” and “DNMR.WS,” respectively.

Live Oak initially announced its $525 million combination with Danimer Scientific on October 5th. For a full list of measures on the ballot as well as vote tallies, click HERE.
