Capitol Investment Corp. V (NYSE:CAP) announced in an 8-K filing this morning that its shareholders approved its combination with proptech firm Doma along with all other proposals in a meeting held yesterday.
Capitol V, which raised $345 million at IPO, had a total of 29,484,128 shares redeemed in connection with the vote, meaning Doma lost approximately 85% of its trust value. The cash minimum condition required Capitol Investment Corp. V to have at least $450 million in cash available, but following the redemptions, only approximately $350 million remained. As a result, Doma is expected to waive this minimum cash condition in order to finalize the deal.
Holders of 32,472,407 shares of Capitol’s common stock, which represented 75.298% of the common stock outstanding, were present at the special meeting.
Capitol expects to close the transaction today July 28, 2021, and the combined entity’s common stock and warrants are expected to begin trading on the NYSE under the new symbols “DOMA” and “DOMA.WS,” respectively, on July 29, 2021.
The parties initially announced the $3 billion deal on March 3. Doma provides digital tools for clearing title, handling escrow and closing on home purchases through an app or online under the States Title brand.
