Northern Star Investment Corp. II  (NYSE:NSTB) and Pivotal Investment Corp. III (NYSE:PICC) each announced this morning that they have signed non-redemption agreements a day after adjourning their extension votes.

The moves are functionally identical with each securing the agreement of third parties not to redeem a total of 200,000 shares in each SPAC that were previously purchased at the vehicles’ IPOs. In exchange, each SPAC’s investors are to receive a share of 50,000 promote shares from the respective sponsor.

Northern Star II and Pivotal III are both led by New York Islanders-owner Jonthan Ledecky and each punted their December 22 extension votes to December 28. Pivotal has slightly more time to work with, facing a deadline of February 11, 2023, while Northern Star II currently has until deadline of January 28, 2023.

Northern Star II originally entered into a $4.7 billion business combination with Apex Clearing Holdings in February but terminated it in December 2021. Pivotal Investment III has not yet announced a transaction but is listed with a stated focus on finding a digital technology target in North America.

Pivotal II combined with truck-electrification company XL Fleet (NYSE:SPRU), which changed its name to Spruce Power after pivoting to household solar and acquiring a company of this name. Pivotal I combined with governance solutions firm KLDiscovery (OTC:KLDI) in 2019.

The earlier iteration of Northern Star meanwhile combined with pet products ecommerce platform BarkBox (NYSE:BARK).
