Mallard Also Receives Expected Notice from Nasdaq Regarding Delayed Annual Report
New York, NY, April 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Mallard Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ: MACU) (the “Company”) announced today that, due to its inability to consummate an initial business combination within the time period required by its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, the Company intends to dissolve and liquidate in accordance with the provisions of its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation and will redeem all of the outstanding shares of common stock that were included in the units issued in its initial public offering (the “Public Shares”), at a per-share redemption price of approximately $10.10.
As of the close of business on April 29, 2022, the Public Shares will be deemed cancelled and will represent only the right to receive the redemption amount.
In order to provide for the disbursement of funds from the trust account, the Company has instructed the trustee of the trust account to take all necessary actions to immediately liquidate the trust account. The proceeds of the trust account will be held in a non-interest bearing account while awaiting disbursement to the holders of the Public Shares. Record holders may redeem their shares for their pro rata portion of the proceeds of the trust account by delivering their Public Shares to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent. Beneficial owners of Public Shares held in “street name,” however, will not need to take any action in order to receive the redemption amount. The redemption of the Public Shares is expected to be completed within ten business days after April 29, 2022.
The Company’s initial stockholders have waived their redemption rights with respect to its outstanding common stock issued prior to the Company’s initial public offering.
There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Company’s warrants, which will expire worthless.
The Company also announced today that it received a notice (“Notice”) from the Listing Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) stating that the Company is not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1) because the Company failed to timely file its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended December 31, 2021 (the “Form 10-K”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The Notice has no immediate effect on the listing or trading of the Company’s securities on the Nasdaq Capital Market. The Company intends to file its Form 10-K with the SEC as soon as practicable. However, the Company plans to liquidate, and its securities will not continue to be listed on Nasdaq subsequent to such liquidation.
