InterPrivate III Financial Partners Inc. Announces Amendment and Supplements to it Definitive Proxy Statement
New York, NY, Dec. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- InterPrivate III Financial Partners Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE: IPVF) today announced that in order to mitigate the current uncertainty surrounding the implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, in the event that the extension (the “Extension”) of the time period the Company has to complete an initial business combination (the “Business Combination”) is approved and implemented as described in the Definitive Proxy Statement (defined below) funds in trust, including any interest earned thereon, will not be used to pay any excise tax liabilities with respect to any future redemptions that occur after December 31, 2022 and prior to or in connection with a Business Combination or liquidation of the Company.
Additionally, the Company announced if the Extension is approved and implemented, (i) the Company plans to deposit the remaining amount of funds from its trust account into a variable interest bearing account currently expected to yield approximately 3.0% per annum following the 24 month anniversary of its IPO and (ii) the Company will contribute funds from its working capital account, or if such working capital account is depleted, then InterPrivate Acquisition Management III, LLC, the Company’s sponsor (the “Sponsor”) (or a designee), will deposit, in an amount determined by multiplying $0.06 by the number of public shares outstanding following any redemptions of public shares effected in connection with the Special Meeting, up to a maximum of $210,000 per month and $630,000 in the aggregate if all three extensions are implemented, instead of the fixed amount of $25,000 per month described in the Definitive Proxy Statement.
There can be no assurance that the Company’s stockholders will approve the Extension Amendment Proposal and/or the Liquidation Amendment Proposal (together, the “Proposals”) at the Special Meeting, and if such approvals are not obtained the Company will redeem the public shares pursuant to the terms of its amended and restated certificate of incorporation (the “Charter”) and its trust agreement.
Pursuant to the Charter, the Company has until March 9, 2023 to consummate an initial business combination. If the Company has not completed an initial business combination within the applicable required time, the Company will: (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter subject to lawfully available funds therefor, redeem 100% of the Offering Shares in consideration of a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (A) the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account, including interest not previously released to the Company to pay its taxes (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), by (B) the total number of then outstanding Offering Shares, which redemption will completely extinguish rights of the Public Stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), subject to applicable law, and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining stockholders and the Board in accordance with applicable law, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under the DGCL to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.
