AMSTERDAM–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hedosophia European Growth (the “Company”) today announces that it will not conclude a Business Combination ahead of its Business Combination Deadline of 18 May 2023. To this end, the Company’s board has unanimously resolved that it is in the Company’s best interests to liquidate the Company and shall take all required steps for redemption and liquidation as soon as possible from the Business Combination Deadline.
In accordance with the Company’s Prospectus, the Company will cease all operations from 18 May 2023, except for the purpose of winding up. As promptly as possible but not more than 10 Trading Days afterwards, the Company will redeem all Units and Ordinary Shares.
