MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Safe & Green Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SGBX) (“SG Holdings” or the “Company”), a leading developer, designer, and fabricator of modular structures for residential, commercial, and point-of-care medicine, today announced that Nasdaq has approved the Company’s application to list the common stock of Safe and Green Development Corporation (“SG DevCo”), the Company’s real estate development subsidiary, on the Nasdaq Stock Market under the symbol “SGD”.
Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO, stated, “Our team has dedicated over a year to reach this significant milestone and we are now approaching the finish line. Considering that a third-party analysis has set SG DevCo's fair market value at $74 million, significantly surpassing SG Holdings' market cap, we believe that this spin-off will create significant value for our investors. The spin-off will effectively provide current SG Holdings stockholders with two separate opportunities to participate in the value created by SG DevCo as they will now own approximately 30% of SG DevCo, while still maintaining their pro rata ownership in SG Holdings.”
David Villarreal, President & CEO of Safe and Green Development Corporation, commented, “SG DevCo’s outlook is exceptionally bright, with a current project pipeline exceeding $800 million and plans to develop over 4,000 units. The spin-off of SG DevCo will create a pivotal moment for the Company.”
Stockholders who hold SG Holdings common stock at the close of business on the record date, today, September 8th, 2023, will be eligible to receive a distribution of 0.930886 shares of SG DevCo for every 5 shares of SG Holdings common stock held. No action is required by SG Holdings stockholders to receive shares of SG DevCo’s common stock in the distribution. More detailed information on the distribution can be found in the section entitled “Distribution Information.”
As previously announced, the separation will occur by means of a pro rata distribution by the Company of approximately thirty percent of the outstanding shares of SG DevCo common stock to the Company’s current stockholders (the “Distribution”). SG Holdings will retain approximately seventy percent of SG DevCo common stock immediately following the Distribution.
SG Holdings plans to set a new date to distribute (the “Distribution Date”) the shares of SG DevCo to holders of record as of the close of business on the record date, September 8, 2023. Each SG Holdings stockholder will receive precisely 0.930886 shares of SG DevCo common stock for every five (5) shares of SG Holdings common stock held as of the close of business on the record date. No fractional shares of SG DevCo common stock will be issued in the Distribution, and stockholders will receive cash in lieu of fractional shares. SG 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. The Company will provide further updates regarding the Distribution Date when available.
The Distribution remains subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions described in SG DevCo’s Registration Statement on Form 10, as amended, including the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) having declared effective the Form 10. The Form 10 has been filed by SG DevCo with the SEC and is publicly available at www.sec.gov.
SG Holdings expects to make available an information statement to all stockholders entitled to receive the distribution of shares of SG DevCo’s common stock. The information statement is filed as an exhibit to SG DevCo’s Registration Statement on Form 10 and describes SG DevCo and certain risks of owning SG DevCo common stock and provides other information regarding the spin-off.
SG Holdings stockholders who hold shares of common stock on the record date of September 8, 2023, and decide to sell any of those shares before the Distribution Date, should consult their stockbroker, bank, or other nominee to understand whether the shares of SG Holdings common stock will be sold with or without entitlement to SG DevCo common stock pursuant to the Distribution.
The Company will provide further updates, including the Distribution Date and the date that the SG DevCo shares will begin trading on Nasdaq when that information is available.
