Epiphany Technology Acquisition Corp. Announces Intent to Liquidate

December 17, 2022

Palo Alto, California, Dec. 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Epiphany Technology Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) announced today that it will be unable to consummate an initial business combination and intends to dissolve and liquidate in accordance with the provisions of its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation, as amended (“Liquidation”). On November 29, 2022, the Company filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission a definitive proxy statement (the “Proxy Statement”) in connection with a special meeting in lieu of an annual meeting of the stockholders (the “Meeting”) to consider and vote on certain proposals, including an extension of the date by which the Company has to complete an initial business combination from January 12, 2023 to July 12, 2023 (the “Extension”), as supplemented on December 13, 2022. At the time of filing of the Proxy Statement, the Company was in active discussions with partner companies and believed it could complete a business combination if the Extension were to be approved by the stockholders. However, after careful consideration, the Company has determined it would be unable to deliver a high quality transaction to stockholders even with an Extension (we previously reported that no contribution to its trust account being made in connection with the Extension). Therefore, due to the recent developments and the current uncertainty surrounding the implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, which provides for, among other things, a new U.S. federal 1% excise tax on certain repurchases (including redemptions) of stock by publicly traded domestic corporations that occur after December 31, 2022, the Company intends to proceed with the Liquidation following the Meeting. The Company expects to hold the Meeting as originally planned on December 20, 2022 and will continue to accept redemption requests until 2:00 p.m. Eastern time on December 20, 2022. In connection with the Meeting, the Company anticipates that the per share price at which public shares will be redeemed from cash held in the trust account will be approximately $10.10. The redemption price paid to stockholders not electing to redeem their shares in connection with the Meeting but in connection with the Liquidation may be subject to the 1% excise tax on redemptions after January 1, 2023.
