GRAND CAYMAN / ACCESSWIRE / March 14, 2023 / Rocket Internet Growth Opportunities Corp. (the "Company") (NYSE:RKTA, RKTA.U), a special purpose acquisition company, announced today that it will be unable to consummate an initial business combination on or prior to March 25, 2023, the time period required by its Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association (the "Articles"). Accordingly, the Company intends to redeem all of the outstanding Class A ordinary shares that were included in the units issued in the Company's initial public offering (the "Public Shares") at a per-share redemption price of approximately $10.22, and thereafter will dissolve and liquidate in accordance with the Articles.
In order to provide for the disbursement of funds from the Company's trust account, the Company will instruct Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, as trustee (the "Trustee"), to take all necessary actions to liquidate the securities held in the trust account. The proceeds from such liquidation will be held in a non-interest bearing account while awaiting disbursement to the holders of the Public Shares. Holders of record must deliver their Public Shares to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company's transfer agent, to receive their pro rata portion of such proceeds. Beneficial owners of Public Shares held in "street name" will not need to take any action in order to receive the redemption amount. The redemption of the Public Shares is expected to occur on or about March 29, 2023.
In connection with the Company's initial public offering, the Company's sponsor, Rocket Internet Growth Opportunities Sponsor GmbH, agreed to waive any redemption rights with respect to its outstanding Class B common shares 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 expects that the last day of trading of the Public Shares on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") will be March 24, 2023, and that NYSE will thereafter file a Form 25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") to delist the Company's securities. The Company expects to file a Form 15 with the SEC to terminate the registration of its securities under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
