Shares of Digital World Acquisition Corp. DWAC are tumbling in premarket trading on Tuesday.
Shareholders have rejected the special purpose acquisition company’s proposal to extend by a year the deadline for its merger with former President Donald Trump’s Trump Media & Technology, which operates the Truth Social platform, Reuters reported.
When the votes garnered until Monday were tallied, it appears that Digital World may not succeed in getting the 65% threshold required to implement the proposal, the report noted, citing sources. The company is toying with a couple of options in the eventuality of a majority ‘no vote.’ including extending the voting deadline or unilaterally going ahead with a six-month extension.
The extension sought would help the company get SEC approval for the proposed combination.
In premarket trading on Tuesday, DWAC shares are plummeting 20.77% to $19.80, according to Benzinga Pro data.
