NEW YORK, Dec. 20, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- On December 16, 2022, the stockholders of KL Acquisition Corp (the “Company”) approved an amendment to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation (the “Charter Amendment”) to allow the Company to unwind and redeem all of its outstanding public shares prior to December 30, 2022. The Company filed the Charter Amendment with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware on December 16, 2022.

Following the implementation of the Charter Amendment, the Board of Directors of the Company set December 19, 2022 as the amended termination date.

The Company has also requested the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC to suspend trading of (i) its Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of the Company (“Class A Common Stock”), (ii) redeemable warrants to purchase shares of Class A Common Stock (the “Redeemable Warrants”) and (iii) units, each consisting of one share of Class A Common Stock and one-third of one Redeemable Warrant (the “Units” and together with the Class A Common Stock and the Redeemable Warrants, the “Securities”) effective after the closing of trading on December 16, 2022 and file with the Securities and Exchange Commission the forms necessary to delist the Company’s Securities.


Pursuant to the amended Charter, the public shares of Class A Common Stock will be redeemed at 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 (net of taxes payable, and less up to $100,000 of such net interest to pay dissolution expenses) (the “Redemption Amount”), by (B) the total number of then outstanding public shares of Class A Common Stock. The redemption will completely extinguish rights of holders of public shares of Class A Common Stock. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Redeemable Warrants, which will expire worthless upon the liquidation of the Company.

If stockholders hold Units, such stockholders do not need to separate the Units into their component parts in order to have their public shares of Class A Common Stock redeemed.

In connection with the approval and implementation of the Charter Amendment, the holders of 28,391,446 public shares of Class A Common Stock, exercised their right to redeem their shares for cash. The Company has instructed its trustee to promptly distribute payment of the redemption price to such holders. Following such redemptions, 358,554 public shares of Class A Common Stock remain outstanding. The Company expects to redeem all remaining public shares of the Company on December 22, 2022, following which the Company will be dissolved, liquidated and wound up.
