Welsbach Technology Metals Acquisition Corp. (WTMA) Terminates WaveTech Deal

Welsbach Technology Metals Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:WTMA) announced this morning that it has jointly terminated its combination with battery-maker WaveTech, citing market conditions.

The short press release gave few further details, but the parties were past the merger’s outside date since March 31. Welsbach currently would have had enough cash from its trust to meet the deal’s $25 million minimum cash condition.

But, its trust had been reduced to $37.7 million with 53% of shares redeemed thus far and the transaction did not include other committed capital to provide more clarity into the final proceeds.

Welsbach also did not clarify in the release whether it intends to seek out a new combination target. It has time to consider its options, however, having secured an extension in May that would allow it to stretch to September 30 with monthly contributions to its trust of $125,000.

The SPAC has been searching for a combination target in the space of “energy transition metals” like rare earth miners or battery technology firms since its IPO in December 2021. It is led by CEO and Chairman Daniel Mamadou and COO Christopher Clower, both from Singapore-based energy investment firm Welsbach Holdings.
