EX-99.1 2 ea172144ex99-1_sciontech2.htm PRESS RELEASE DATED JANUARY 24, 2023

Exhibit 99.1

 

ScION Tech Growth II Announces Redemption of Shares

 

January 24, 2023 — ScION Tech Growth II (Nasdaq:SCOB) today announced that its board of directors (the “Board”) has determined to redeem all of its outstanding Class A ordinary shares (the “Class A Shares”), effective as of February 13, 2023, because the Company will not consummate an initial business combination within the time period required by its amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (the “Articles”).

 

Pursuant to the Articles, if the Company does not consummate an initial business combination by February 12, 2023, the Company will: (i) cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up, (ii) as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the public shares, at a price payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account, including interest earned on the funds held in the trust account (less taxes payable and up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then outstanding public shares, which redemption will completely extinguish public shareholders’ rights as public shareholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any) and (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of our remaining shareholders and the Board, liquidate and dissolve, subject, in the case of clauses (ii) and (iii), to our obligations under Cayman Islands law to provide for claims of creditors and in all cases subject to other requirements of applicable law.

 

The Company anticipates that the last day of trading in the Company’s Class A Shares will be February 10, 2023 and that, as of the open of business on February 13, 2023, the Class A Shares will be suspended from trading, will be deemed cancelled and will represent only the right to receive the per-share redemption price for the public shares to be announced at a later date (the “Redemption Amount”).

 

The Redemption Amount will be payable to the holders of the Class A Shares upon presentation of their respective share or unit certificates or other delivery of their shares or units to the Company’s transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company. Beneficial owners of Class A Shares held in “street name,” however, will not need to take any action in order to receive the Redemption Amount.

 

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Company’s warrants. The Company’s initial shareholders have waived their redemption rights with respect to the outstanding Class B ordinary shares issued prior to the Company’s initial public offering.

 

The Company expects that Nasdaq will file a Form 25 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to delist its securities. The Company thereafter expects to file a Form 15 with the Commission to terminate the registration of its securities under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
