Tuscan Holdings Corp. Adjourns Annual Meeting of Stockholders to May 10, 2021 to Allow Stockholders More Time to Vote on the Extension Amendment Proposal
Tuscan Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: THCB) (“Tuscan”) today announced that its 2021 Annual Meeting of stockholders was convened today at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time for purposes of considering the proposals to elect Amy Butte as a Class I Director and adjourn the Annual Meeting to allow more time for stockholders to vote their shares to approve the proposal to extend the date by which Tuscan must complete its initial business combination, from April 30, 2021 to July 31, 2021 (the “Extension Amendment Proposal”). The Annual Meeting has been adjourned until May 10, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern time, virtually, at https://www.cstproxy.com/tuscanholdingscorp/2021. Tuscan has also extended the deadline for stockholders requesting to convert their shares into a pro rata portion of the funds available in Tuscan’s trust account to May 6, 2021.
At the time the Annual Meeting was convened today, a quorum representing at least a majority of shares outstanding on the record date of March 17, 2021 was present in person or by proxy. However, Tuscan had not received the approval of holders of 65% of its shares outstanding on the record date then necessary to approve the Extension Amendment Proposal. According to Tuscan’s certificate of incorporation, as of May 1, 2021, the vote required for approval of the Extension Amendment Proposal will be reduced from 65% of the shares outstanding to a majority of the shares outstanding on the record date. As a result, Tuscan believes adjourning the Annual Meeting until May 10, 2021 will provide its stockholders the ability to approve the Extension Amendment Proposal and, if the Extension Amendment Proposal is so approved, the opportunity to vote to approve the proposed business combination with Microvast Inc. (“Microvast”) at a subsequent meeting, which Tuscan anticipates convening in June 2021.
Tuscan requests that any stockholder who held shares of stock in Tuscan as of the close of business on March 17, 2021, and has not yet voted, do so as soon as possible. When the Annual Meeting is reconvened, stockholders will be asked to approve the Extension Amendment Proposal to allow Tuscan more time to complete its proposed business combination with Microvast.
During the period of the adjournment, Tuscan will continue to solicit proxies from its stockholders with respect to the Extension Amendment Proposal. Proxies previously submitted in respect of the Annual Meeting will be voted at the reconvened meeting unless properly revoked. Proxies can be revoked by following the procedure for revocation described in the definitive Proxy Statement for the Annual Meeting.
