NEW YORKDirect Selling Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) (New York Stock Exchange: DSAQ), announced today that it intends to adjourn, without conducting any business, the Company’s special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) originally scheduled to be held on March 22, 2023, and to reconvene the Special Meeting at 11:00 a.m., Eastern time, on March 24, 2023. In connection with the adjournment of the Special Meeting, the Company is extending the deadline for holders of its shares of Class A common stock to exercise their right to redeem their shares for their pro rata portion of the funds available in the Company’s trust account, or to withdraw any previously delivered demand for redemption, to 5:00 p.m., Eastern time, on March 22, 2023 (two business days before the adjourned Special Meeting).
The Special Meeting is being held to vote on the proposals described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 2, 2023, relating to its proposed extension of the deadline to complete its initial business combination (the “Extension”).
The Company also announced that DSAC Partners LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (or one or more of its affiliates, members or third-party designees) (the “Lender”), will make additional contributions to the Company’s trust account following the approval and implementation of the Extension. If the Extension is approved at the Special Meeting, the Lender will deposit $480,000 into the Company’s trust account in exchange for a non-interest bearing, unsecured promissory note issued by the Company to the Lender. Further, if the Extension is approved, and in the event that the Company has not consummated such initial business combination by June 28, 2023, the Company may extend the deadline by which to consummate such initial business combination by one additional month up to nine times, provided that the Lender deposits $160,000 into the Company’s trust account for each such monthly extension, for an aggregate deposit of up to $1,920,000 in exchange for a non-interest bearing, unsecured promissory note issued by the Company to the Lender. The Company will be able to effect each such monthly extension by resolution of its board of directors without a stockholder vote.
In addition, on March 17, 2023, the Company announced that it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent for a potential business combination with a private company in the urban mobility sector. No assurances can be made that the Company will successfully negotiate and enter into a definitive agreement for a business combination or that the Company will be successful in completing the business combination.
