NEW YORK, September 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Mudrick Capital Acquisition Corporation II (“MUDS” or the “Company”; NASDAQ: MUDS, MUDSU, MUDSW), a special purpose acquisition company, today announced its intention to dissolve and liquidate in accordance with the provisions of its amended and restated certificate of incorporation (the “Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation”). MUDS has not completed a business combination opportunity within the time period required by its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation. The Company will redeem all of its outstanding Class A common shares issued pursuant to the units sold under the Company’s initial public offering (the “Public Shares”), effective at the close of business on September 12, 2022.

Cease all operations except with a view to liquidation.
As promptly as reasonably practicable, but not more than 10 business days thereafter, redeem the public shares, at a price per share, payable in cash, equal to the total amount then on deposit in the trust account, including interest earned on funds held in the trust account and not previously released to the company to pay its tax obligations (less up to $100,000 interest to pay dissolution costs), divided by the number of public shares then outstanding, the redemption of which will completely extinguish the rights of the public shareholders of MUDS as shareholders (and, therefore, the public shares will not be entitled to receive further liquidation distributions, if any).
As promptly as reasonably practicable after such redemption, subject to the approval of the remaining shareholders of MUDS and the board of directors of the company, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the obligations of the company under general law on corporations in the State of Delaware, to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.
Excluding taxes and up to $100,000 dissolution fee, MUDS currently expects the redemption price per share of the public shares to be approximately $10.16 (as ultimately determined, the “Redemption Amount”).
The Redemption Amount will be paid no later than September 23, 2022, to usufructuaries of public shares held in the name of the street without any action required on their part. The Redemption Amount will be paid to registered holders of public shares upon delivery of their public shares to the company’s transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, on or after September 12, 2022.
MUDS expects the public shares to cease trading before markets open on September 13, 2022. As soon as the offices close on September 12, 2022, the public shares will be deemed canceled and will represent only the right to receive the Redemption Amount. After September 12, 2022the company will cease all activities except those necessary for the liquidation of the company’s activity.
There will be no redemption rights or liquidation distributions with respect to the MUDS Warrants, which will expire worthless. The corporate sponsor, directors and each member of the management team of MUDS have waived their redemption rights with respect to all Founder Shares held by them.
