Thrive Acquisition Corporation Announces it will Redeem its Public Shares and will not Consummate an Initial Business Combination

NEWTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Thrive Acquisition Corporation (NASDAQ: THAC) (the “Company”) announced today that, because the Company will not consummate an initial business combination within the time period required by its Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association (the “Amended Articles”), the Company intends to liquidate and dissolve in accordance with the provisions of the Amended Articles, effective as of the close of business on January 25, 2023, and will redeem all of the outstanding Class A ordinary shares that were included in the units issued in its initial public offering (the “Public Shares”), at an anticipated per-share redemption price of approximately $10.36.

As of the close of business on January 25, 2023, the Public Shares will be deemed cancelled and will represent only the right to receive the redemption amount.

In order to provide for the disbursement of funds from the trust account, the Company will instruct the trustee of the trust account to take all necessary actions to liquidate the securities held in the trust account. The proceeds of the trust account will be held in a non-interest bearing account while awaiting disbursement to the holders of the Public Shares. Record holders will receive their pro rata portion of the proceeds of the trust account by delivering their Public Shares to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent. Beneficial owners of Public Shares held in “street name,” however, will not need to take any action in order to receive the redemption amount. The redemption of the Public Shares is expected to be completed within ten business days after January 25, 2023.

The Company’s sponsor, officers and directors have agreed to waive their redemption rights with respect to their outstanding Class B ordinary shares issued prior to the Company’s initial public offering. There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Company’s warrants, which will expire worthless.

The Company expects that The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC will file a Form 25 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) to delist the Company’s securities. The Company thereafter expects to file a Form 15 with the Commission to terminate the registration of its securities under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The Company anticipates that the Public Shares will cease trading as of the close of business on January 25, 2023.
