Item 8.01 Other Events

 

As previously disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 20, 2020, Alberton Acquisition Corporation (the “Alberton”) had agreed that if the April 2020 extension is approved, it would issue, with respect to each public share that is not redeemed in connection with the April 2020 extension, by the earlier of the date of the completion of the business combination or the expiration of the April 2020 extension period, which was October 26, 2020, one dividend warrant to purchase one-half of one ordinary share. The dividend warrants are identical to the warrants included in the units sold in Alberton’s initial public offering.

 

In connection with the April 2020 extension, the Company received redemption request in the aggregated amount of 10,073,512 shares on April 21, 2020, the cut-off date for shareholders to submit their redemption request. Accordingly, 10,073,512 public shares were redeemed, resulting in a total of 1,414,480 remaining public shares issued and outstanding. On January 19, 2021, the board of the Company approved the issuance of 1,414,480 dividend warrants to those public shareholders who were shareholders on April 21, 2020 and did not exercise their right of redemption in connection with the April 2020 extension, and the Company instructed such issuance. The Company was advised the dividend warrants would be processed and delivered to public shareholders on or about February 5, 2021, although the date of delivery may be delayed as a result of processing time by DTC, broker and dealer, and other relevant parties.
