- What occurred in the DEAC-WILLIAMS SCOTSMAN business combination?
- In June 2015, Double Eagle Acquisition Corp. (“DEAC”) was formed as a “blank check” company to pursue a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition or other business combination. The special purpose acquisition company completed an initial public offering in September 2015, raising approximately $500 million for the purpose of consummating an acquisition or other business combination prior to December 31, 2017. In August 2017, DEAC and affiliates of TDR Capital, LLP (“Algeco”), entered into a stock purchase agreement under which DEAC agreed to acquire 100 percent of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of Williams Scotsman International, Inc. (“WSII”), for an aggregate purchase price of $1.1 billion, of which $1.0215 billion was payable in cash, and the remaining $78.5 million was payable to Algeco as a 10 percent equity interest in a holding company formed by DEAC to own WSII’s common stock. In conjunction with the closing thereof,
The business combination was completed on November 29, 2017.
- DEAC, a Cayman Islands exempted company, converted itself into a Delaware corporation and changed its name to WillScot Corporation;
- the company’s Class A ordinary shares (NASDAQ: EAGL) were converted into WSC common stock (NASDAQ: WSC);
- the Nasdaq ticker symbol for the company’s public warrants was changed from “EAGLW” to “WSCWW”; and
- the company’s units (NASDAQ: EAGLU) were separated into two components (common stock and warrants) and, therefore, effectively extinguished.
- If I owned Class A ordinary units and warrants of DEAC before the business combination, what happened to my securities at the closing of the transaction?
- If you owned Class A ordinary units as of the closing of the business combination, then your Class A ordinary units (NASDAQ: EAGL) were converted, on a one-for-one basis, into WSC Class A common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. To the extent you owned any publicly listed warrants issued by DEAC as of the closing, the Nasdaq ticker symbol for the warrants changed from “EAGLW” to “WSCWW” – the business combination changed only the warrants’ ticker symbol.
