The filing did not include final redemption figures or a timeline for close, but as of yesterday the SPAC faced 66.2% redemptions. Northern Lights said at the time that it intends to close the business combination by June 30, but it made a $0.10 per share contribution to its trust in order to extend its transaction deadline to September 28, so it has flexibility.
Post-close, the combined company is expected to trade under the ticker symbol “SHFS”. The SPAC initially announced its $327 million deal earlier this year on February 22. Arvada, Colorado-based Safe Harbor provides commercial banking and other financial services to the cannabis industry.
All other measures on Northern Lights’ ballot passed nearly unanimously but investors representing about 7% of shares objected to measures concerning the proportion of votes required by the post-combination company to make additional governance changes.
