Special Holicity Shareholders Meeting Scheduled to Begin June 30 at 8:00 AM Eastern Time
NEW YORK, June 29, 2021– (BUSINESS WIRE) – Holicity Inc. (“Holicity” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: HOL) issued the following statement to Holicity shareholders reiterating the recommendation of Holicity’s Board of Directors in favor of the transaction with Astra Space, Inc. (“Astra”), pursuant to the Business Combination Agreement, dated February 2, 2021, between Astra, Holicity and Holicity Merger Sub Inc, a wholly owned subsidiary of Holicity (the “Combination Agreement of business”).
Holicity Inc. is scheduled to hold a special shareholders meeting at 8:00 am ET on June 30, 2021 to approve a business combination with Astra Space, Inc. We asked shareholders who owned shares in Holicity Inc on May 24, 2021 (the date of registration) who cast their vote so that their shares can be represented at the June 30 meeting. Your vote is extremely important; closing the business combination cannot be possible without your support. The deadline to vote online is today,, June 29, 11:59 p.m. ET.
Shareholder participation has been important; however, if a sufficient number of shares are not voted on before the deadline, a quorum may not be reached at the special meeting and therefore the business combination will be delayed. A higher percentage of retail investors presents a unique challenge for us to reach out to shareholders who may not be used to the voting process at special meetings. “Retail investors don’t always understand how important it can be to vote, even a small number of shares, to successfully complete a merger like this,” said Randy Russell, Chief Investment Officer at Holicity. “We believe this transaction is for the benefit of our shareholders, and it is critical that everyone has the opportunity to vote to meet this goal.”
If a shareholder wants to be part of this process, they should contact their brokers to learn how to cast their vote, or visit www.holicity.inc.
Shareholders may also contact Morrow Sodali LLC, Holicity’s authorized representative, by phone at (800) 662-5200 or by email at [email protected] for assistance with voting or if they have any question.
We want to thank you for your continued support towards Holicity.
