Altitude Acquisition Corp. Announces Liquidation of Trust Account

ATLANTA, March 12, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altitude Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: ALTUU, ALTU, ALTUW) (the “Company”), today announced that it will redeem all of its outstanding shares of Class A common stock initially issued as part of the units sold in its initial public offering (the “Public Shares”), effective as of March 12, 2024, because the Company will not consummate an initial business combination within the time period required by its amended and restated certificate of incorporation. The Company further announced that it will not proceed with the previously-announced hearing before a hearings panel of the Nasdaq Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) with respect to Nasdaq IM-5101-2, which requires that a special purpose acquisition company complete one or more business combinations within 36 months of the effectiveness of its initial public offering registration statement. Accordingly, the Company’s securities will be delisted from Nasdaq.

In connection with the liquidation of the trust account, as of the close of business on March 12, 2024, the Public Shares will be deemed cancelled and will represent only the right to receive the estimated per-share redemption price of approximately $10.1577 (after taking into account the removal of a portion of the accrued interest in the trust account to pay taxes and $100,000 for dissolution expenses).

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 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 may redeem their Public Shares for their pro rata portion of the proceeds of the trust account upon presentation of their respective share or unit certificates or other delivery of their Public Shares or units to Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent. Beneficial owners of Public Shares held in “street name” 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 March 12, 2024.

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the Company’s warrants. The Company’s sponsor, officers, and directors have waived their redemption rights with respect to the shares of common stock issued to them prior to the Company’s initial public offering.

The Company expects that Nasdaq will file a Form 25 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to delist its securities on or about March 12, 2024.
