Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On September 19-21, 2023, Yotta Acquisition Corporation (the “Company”) and Yotta Investment, LLC (the “Sponsor”) entered into non-redemption agreements (“Non-Redemption Agreement”) with certain unaffiliated third parties in exchange for such third parties agreeing not to redeem an aggregate of 598,680 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Common Stock”) sold in its initial public offering (“Non-Redeemed Shares”) in connection with the special meeting of the stockholders called by the Company to be held on September 22, 2023 (the “Meeting”) to consider and approve, among other things, an amendment to the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, which was previously amended on April 19, 2023, (the “Extension Amendment Proposal”), and an amendment to the Company’s investment management trust agreement dated April 19, 2022, as amended on April 19, 2023, (the “Trust Amendment Proposal”), to extend the time for the Company to complete its initial business combination by August 22, 2024 without having to make any payment to the trust account established in connection with the Company’s initial public offering. In exchange for the foregoing commitments not to redeem such Non-Redeemed Shares, the Sponsor has agreed to transfer to such third parties an aggregate of up to 300,000 shares of the Common Stock held by the Sponsor following the escrow period as determined by the Stock Escrow Agreement entered by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer and Trust Company dated April 19, 2022, if they continue to hold such Non-Redeemed Shares through the Meeting.
The Non-Redemption Agreements are not expected to increase the likelihood that the Extension Amendment Proposal and the Trust Amendment Proposal is approved by the Company’s stockholders but are expected to increase the amount of funds that remain in the Company’s trust account following the Meeting.
The foregoing summary of the Non-Redemption Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Non-Redemption Agreement filed herein as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
Participants in the Solicitation
The Company and its directors and executive officers and other persons may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from the Company’s stockholders in respect of the Meeting. Information regarding the Company’s directors and executive officers is available in its definitive proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 11, 2023, for the Meeting (the “Proxy Statement”). Additional information regarding the participants in the proxy solicitation and a description of their direct and indirect interests are contained in the Proxy Statement (defined below).
No Offer or Solicitation
This communication shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. No offering of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
The Company has filed the Proxy Statement with the SEC for the Meeting to consider and vote upon the Trust Amendment Proposal and other matters and, beginning on or about September 12, 2023, mailed the Proxy Statement and other relevant documents to its stockholders as of the August 7, 2023 record date for the Meeting. The Company’s stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read the Proxy Statement and any other relevant documents that have been or will be filed with the SEC in connection with the Company’s solicitation of proxies for the Meeting because these documents will contain important information about the Company, the Trust Amendment Proposal and related matters. Stockholders may also obtain a free copy of the Proxy Statement, as well as other relevant documents that have been or will be filed with the SEC, without charge, at the SEC’s website located at www.sec.gov or by directing a request to Advantage Proxy, P.O. Box 13581, Des Moines, WA 98198 Attention: Karen Smith, Telephone: 877-870-8565.
