Mercer Park Brand Acquisition Corp. Announces June 2, 2021 Shareholder Meeting to Approve Qualifying Transaction and Highlights Upcoming Deadlines for Corporate Actions
TORONTO, April 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mercer Park Brand Acquisition Corp. (NEO: BRND.A.U; OTCQX: MRCQF; “Mercer Park Brand” or the “Company”), a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC) which has entered into a definitive agreement to merge with GH Group, Inc. (the “Glass House Group Transaction”), California’s leading fully-integrated cannabis business, announced that it expects to hold a shareholder meeting on June 2, 2021 to approve the Glass House Group Transaction. It is anticipated that the Glass House Group Transaction will close shortly thereafter, subject to the satisfaction or waiver of all closing conditions.
“We believe the brand-building potential of the Glass House Group Transaction is exceptional,” said Mercer Park Brand Chairman Jonathan Sandelman. “This is an incredible portfolio of assets and talent, and Glass House has a proven track record of excellence. Glass House Group is poised to become the largest vertically integrated brand-building platform in California, the world’s largest cannabis market.”
In order to facilitate the closing of the Glass House Group Transaction, on May 5, 2021 there will be a shareholder meeting to vote in support of a brief extension of the May 13, 2021 deadline of the Company’s permitted timeline (the “Extension”). Votes by proxy must be received by 10 a.m. (Toronto time) on May 3, 2021.
Following the extension, investors will have an additional opportunity to redeem their shares for cash before the closing of the Glass House Group Transaction by depositing their shares for redemption before the close of business on June 2, 2021.
The Company encourages shareholders to vote in favor of the extension and to remain fully invested through the closing of the Glass House Group Transaction.
