Rodgers Silicon Valley Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:RSVA) announced in a press release today that its shareholders approved its combination with next-generation 3D Silicon™ Lithium-ion battery manufacturer Enovix at a special meeting held on July 12.
The release did not include redemption numbers, but Rodgers Silicon Valley traded above $20 throughout July 8, the day of its redemption deadline, and opened today at $22.04.
The combined entity’s shares and warrants will start trading on the Nasdaq under the new symbols “ENVX” and “ENVXW”, respectively, on Thursday, July 15.
The transaction resulted in approximately $405 million of gross cash proceeds, before expenses, which will allow Enovix to build out its first two production facilities to support demand from blue chip customers in the global mobile computing market while continuing to develop cells for Electric Vehicles (EVs).
Rodgers Silicon Valley and Enovix initially announced the $1.128 billion deal on February 22. Enovix’s initial goal is to provide designers of category-leading mobile devices with a high-energy battery so they can create more innovative and effective portable products. The company is also developing its 3D cell technology and production process for the electric vehicle and energy storage markets to help enable widespread utilization of renewable energy.
Battery technology companies have been hot. Quantumscape (NYSE:QS), also a battery cell technology company, announced its $3.3 billion deal with Kensington (NYSE:KCAC) a few months prior to Evonix back in September where the markets soared in response to the news. RSVA struck while the iron was still hot as it was able to negotiate PIPE investors up to $14 per share in hopes that it would be next Quantumscape deal. QS’s deal successfully closed with low redemptions in late November and opened today at $24.28.
Enovix ramped up hiring last week with five new additions to its leadership team to accelerate expansion ahead of the closing of its deal.
