NEW YORK, NY, Jan. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Vickers Vantage Corp. I (Nasdaq: VCKAU, VCKA, VCKAW) (“Vickers” or the “Company”), a Cayman Islands exempted company, announced today that it has extended the time it has to consummate an initial business combination by an additional three months pursuant to the Company’s Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association. In connection with the extension, the Company’s sponsors have deposited an aggregate of $1,035,000 into the trust account established in connection with the Company’s initial public offering. The deposit was made in the form of a non-interest bearing loan. If the Company completes an initial business combination, the Company will, at the option of the sponsors, repay such loaned amounts or convert a portion or all of the total loan amount into warrants at a price of $0.75 per warrant, which warrants will be identical to the private warrants issued simultaneously with the Company’s initial public offering. If the Company does not complete a business combination, it will repay such loans only from funds held outside of the trust account.
The Company now has until April 11, 2022 to consummate an initial business combination. If the Company is unable to complete a business combination by such date (and the Company does not extend such date by an additional three months as provided for in the Company’s Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association), it will then liquidate.
