GS Acquisition Holdings II (GSAH) Convinces 5M Shares to Un-Redeem
by Nicholas Alan Clayton on 2021-10-20 at 11:22am

GS Acquisition Holdings II (NYSE:GSAH) announced this morning that about 5 million shares that had previously been tendered for redemption in connection with the close of its merger with Mirion Technologies would now stay in the transaction.

This keeps about $50 million more in the deal and improves what was already a good completion result to about 20% of shares redeemed overall. As many SPACs have done recently, GS II pre-announced that just 26.1% of its shares had been redeemed the day before completion vote giving shareholders an additional day to reverse their redemption decisions.

This is generally done to remove any uncertainty about the health of the deal post-redemptions, and in this case it appears to have had a significant effect.

GS II shareholders approved the transaction yesterday and it expects to close the business combination later today, after which the combined company’s shares and warrants are expected to trade on the NYSE under the symbols “MIR” and “MIRW”, respectively.

The parties initially announced the $2.6 billion deal on June 17. San Ramon, California-based Mirion provides radiation detection equipment and services to sectors ranging from nuclear power generation to defense and nuclear medicine.
