CIIG Merger Corp. (CIIC) Shareholders Approve Arrival Deal

CIIG Merger Corp. (NASDAQ:LOAC) announced that its shareholders had approved its combination with EV-maker Arrival at a special meeting earlier today.

The parties expect to close the transaction on March 24. The shares and warrants of the combined entity are expected to trade on the Nasdaq under the symbols “ARVL” and “ARVLW” on March 25.

CIIG did not disclose redemption figures in its release, but they are highly unlikely to be significant given that Arrival was one of the more popular EV deals on the market and the SPAC opened ahead of the vote at $25.34.

The two sides initially announced their $5.4 billion combination on November 18. UK-based Arrival makes zero-emission buses and vans designed for public transit and commercial fleets, such as that of parcel delivery service UPS, which has ordered 10,000.
