Eve UAM, an Embraer company and a leader in the development of next-generation Urban Air Mobility (UAM) solutions, and Zanite Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company focused on the aviation sector, announced that Zanite has filed its definitive proxy statement on Form DEFM14A related to the companies’ previously announced proposed business combination.
The filing of the Definitive Proxy Statement is an important step to Eve becoming a publicly-traded company. Zanite stockholders are encouraged to read the Definitive Proxy Statement in its entirety and to vote “FOR” all the proposals described therein, Zanite said. If the business combination is approved by Zanite’s stockholders and all other closing conditions are satisfied, Zanite will change its name to “Eve Holding, Inc.” and the combined company’s common stock and public warrants will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbols “EVEX” and “EVEXW”, respectively.
Zanite will hold a special meeting of its stockholders at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Time on 6 May to approve, among other things, the business combination with Eve. Stockholders of record as of the close of business on 11 April will be entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the Special Meeting. The Special Meeting will be a virtual meeting conducted exclusively via live webcast, which stockholders may virtually attend by visiting https://www.cstproxy.com/zaniteacquisition/2022. Eve and Zanite expect that the business combination will close on 9 May subject to the approval of the business combination by Zanite’s stockholders and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions.
