MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Safe & Green Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SGBX) (“Safe & Green Holdings” or the “Company”), a leading developer, designer, and fabricator of modular structures for residential, commercial, and point-of-care medicine, today provided an update on the planned spinoff of Safe & Green Development Corp (“SG DevCo”) to become a standalone company listed on Nasdaq, and the process for distribution of SG DevCo shares to Safe & Green Holdings shareholders.
As previously announced, the Company plans to distribute thirty percent of SG DevCo to its current shareholders, with Safe & Green Holdings retaining seventy percent. A third-party fairness opinion has valued SG DevCo's fair market value at $74 million.
The Company is awaiting final review and approval of the transaction by Nasdaq, which it expects to receive in the coming weeks. Once the transaction receives Nasdaq approval, the Company will move forward with its plan to list SG DevCo on the Nasdaq exchange by announcing the Record Date and anticipated listing date, within approximately 30 days of Nasdaq’s approval of the transaction.
Safe & Green Holdings plans to distribute the shares of SG DevCo on the Distribution Date to holders of record as of the close of business on the yet-to-be-announced Record Date (“Distribution”). The Distribution is expected to be completed following the Nasdaq market closing on the Distribution Date. Safe & Green Holdings’ transfer agent and registrar, American Stock Transfer and Trust Company, LLC, will serve as transfer agent and registrar for SG DevCo as well, and act as distribution agent in connection with the Distribution.
For investors that own Safe & Green Holdings common stock as of the close of business on the Record Date, and are registered owner of the shares, the shares of common stock will be issued electronically, as of the Distribution Date, to investor accounts by way of direct registration in book-entry form. Book-entry form is a method of recording stock ownership when no physical paper share certificates are distributed to stockholders, as is the case with the Distribution.
For beneficial stockholders of the shares that hold Safe & Green Holdings common stock beneficially through a bank or brokerage firm, the bank or brokerage firm will credit stockholders’ accounts with the shares of common stock in connection with the Distribution. Beneficial stockholders with questions concerning the mechanics of shares of common stock held in “street name,” are encouraged to contact their bank or brokerage firm.
Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO stated. “The spinoff of SG DevCo and the subsequent distribution of 30% of the shares to our existing shareholders is yet another demonstration of the Company’s ongoing commitment to creating value for our shareholders.”
The Company will provide further updates regarding the anticipated Nasdaq record and listing dates when available.
