Diamond Eagle (DEAC) Releases Shareholder Vote Results
by Kristi Marvin on 2020-04-23 at 12:14am

Diamond Eagle Acquisition Corp. (DEAC), just released an 8-K detailing the results of their shareholder vote to combine with DraftKings and SBTech, and naturally, this combination was overwhelmingly approved. However, even though DEAC has been trading in the $17.00 range, there were still a few redemptions.


Per the filing, 8,928 shares exercised their right to redeem for cash at a redemption price of approximately $10.1245397 per share, for an aggregate amount of $90,391.89.  Although, if those redeemed shares were sold into the market at an average price of $17.00 instead, holders could have made approximately $61,000 more than $90K they got by redeeming.  Nobody likes leaving money on the table, so it sort of implies those redemptions were a mistake.

Regardless, no matter how you slice it, this is great result.  And even more noteworthy given the current economic climate.  I wonder if the team made any “bets” on that result…
