Miami, FL, Nov. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Maquia Capital Acquisition Corporation (“Maquia” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: “MAQC”, “MAQCU”, “MAQCW”) announced today that Maquia Investments North America, LLC (the “Sponsor”) will increase its contribution to Maquia’s trust account from $0.0333 to $0.045 for each share of Class A common stock (as further detailed below), in connection with the stockholder vote to approve an amendment to its charter to extend the date by which Maquia has to complete an initial business combination from November 7, 2022 to May 7, 2023, or such earlier date as determined by the Company’s board of directors (the “Charter Extension”).

As a result of the above change, if the Charter Extension is approved and implemented, the Sponsor or its designees will contribute to the Company as a loan an aggregate of $ 0.045 for each share of Class A commons stock that is not redeemed, for each calendar month (commencing on November 7, 2022 and on the 7th day of each subsequent month) until May 7, 2023 (each, an “Extension Period”), or portion thereof, that is needed to complete an initial business combination (the “Contribution”).   For example, if the Company take until February 7, 2023, to complete its initial business combination, which would represent three calendar months, the Sponsor or its designees would make aggregate Contributions resulting in a redemption amount of approximately $10.485 per unredeemed share, in comparison to the current redemption amount of $10.35 per share.

Each Contribution will be deposited in the trust account within five (5) business days from the beginning of such calendar month (or portion thereof). Accordingly, if the Charter Extension is approved and the Company needs until May 7, 2023, which is the full amount of time permitted by the Charter Extension, to complete its initial business combination, the redemption amount per share at the meeting for such business combination or the Company’s subsequent liquidation will be approximately $10.62 per share, in comparison to the current redemption amount of $10.35 per share (assuming no public shares are redeemed).


Any Contribution is conditioned upon the implementation of the Charter Extension. No Contribution will occur if the Charter Extension is not approved or is not completed. The amount of each Contribution will not bear interest and will be repayable by the Company to the Sponsor or its designees upon consummation of its initial business combination. The Company will have the sole discretion whether to continue extending for additional calendar months until May 7, 2023. If the Company opts not to utilize any remaining portion of the Extension Period, then the Company will liquidate and dissolve promptly in accordance with its charter, and its Sponsor’s obligation to make additional contributions will terminate.
