Welsbach Technology Metals Acquisition Corp. Announces Extension to Business Combination Deadline; Working Capital Loan from Sponsor

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New York, NY, Aug. 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Welsbach Technology Metals Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”), a blank check company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses (a “Business Combination”), announced today that it has approved an extension of the time period to consummate a Business Combination, in accordance with Article G of the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, to and including August 30, 2023.

In connection therewith, the Company has also approved the issuance and sale, to Welsbach Acquisition Holdings LLC (the “Sponsor”), of a non-interest bearing, unsecured promissory note equal to $125,000 (the “Proceeds”) that will not be repaid in the event that the Company is unable to close a business combination unless there are funds available outside the trust account to do so. Such note would either be paid upon consummation of the initial business combination out of the proceeds of the Trust Account released to the Company or, at the Sponsor’s discretion, converted, in full or in part, upon consummation of our business combination into additional private units at a price of $10.00 per unit. The Company confirms that such Proceeds were placed on deposit in the Company’s Trust Account. As such, in accordance with Article G of the Company’s amended and restated certificate of incorporation, the Company’s time period to consummate a Business Combination has been extended to and including August 30, 2023.

In addition, the Sponsor has made an initial working capital loan to the Company, in the amount of $84,000 concurrently with the deposit of the Proceeds. In connection with the extension process, the Company’s independent directors were informed that certain amounts of restricted cash had been used to make payments to certain vendors for services provided to the Company. The proceeds of the working capital loan are sufficient to replenish the Company’s restricted cash level as of the date hereof.
