Item 8.01Other Events.


On November 28, 2022, Oyster Enterprises Acquisition Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), filed a definitive proxy statement relating to a special meeting of stockholders to approve (i) an amendment (the “Charter Amendment”) to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Charter Amendment Proposal”) and (ii) an amendment to the Investment Management Trust Agreement, dated January 19, 2021, by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, a New York corporation, as trustee (together with the Charter Amendment Proposal, the “Proposals”), which would, if implemented, allow the Company to redeem all of its issued and outstanding shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Public Shares”), in advance of the Company’s original termination date of January 22, 2023 by changing the date by which the Company must cease all operations, except for the purpose of winding up, if it fails to consummate a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination (each, a “Business Combination”) from January 22, 2023 to the later of (x) December 19, 2022 or (y) the date of the effectiveness of the Charter Amendment pursuant to the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware (the “Amended Termination Date”).


If the Proposals are approved, and because the Company will not be able to complete an initial Business Combination by the Amended Termination Date, the Company will be obligated to redeem all of its issued and outstanding Public Shares as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days after the Amended Termination Date (the “Mandatory Redemption”). The Company expects to complete the Mandatory Redemption on or around December 22, 2022, if stockholders approve the Proposals. Additionally, the last day of trading of the Public Shares will be December 19, 2022, if stockholders approve the Proposals.


The virtual special meeting will be held on Monday, December 19, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time, and the record date for the meeting is the close of business on November 21, 2022.
