PROXY STATEMENT SUPPLEMENT FOR THE

SPECIAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS TO

BE HELD NOVEMBER 9, 2018

 

 

 

        On September 19, 2018, I-AM Capital Acquisition Company (“I-AM Capital”) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) and commenced mailing of its definitive proxy statement (as amended and supplemented, the “Proxy Statement”) related to the special meeting of stockholders in lieu of an annual meeting (the “special meeting”) to consider and vote upon, among other things, a proposal (the “Business Combination Proposal”) to approve a share subscription agreement, dated May 3, 2018, by and among Smaaash Entertainment Private Limited (“Smaaash”), I-AM Capital and the other parties thereto (as amended, the “Subscription Agreement”). If the Business Combination Proposal is approved and I-AM Capital consummates the transactions contemplated thereby, I-AM Capital will invest in Smaaash the funds held in the trust account that holds the proceeds of its initial public offering, less certain transaction expenses and amounts used to pay I-AM Capital stockholders who properly exercise their redemption rights and amounts set aside for Forward Stock Purchase Agreements (the “Investment Amount”), in exchange for equity shares of Smaaash. I-AM Capital estimates that the equity shares issued by Smaaash in exchange for the Investment Amount (assuming an Investment Amount of $49.0 million) will constitute up to approximately 27.53% of the issued share capital of Smaaash, provided that such percentage shall decrease proportionately depending on the number of shares redeemed by I-AM Capital’s public stockholders. The Proxy Statement was mailed to I-AM Capital’s stockholders of record as of September 10, 2018 (the “Record Date”).

 

WHEREAS, pursuant to the terms of the Subscription Agreement, certain of the Smaaash Founders (the “Transferring Smaaash Founders”) agreed to transfer all of their ownership interest in Smaaash (equal to 33.6% of the share capital of Smaaash on a fully-diluted basis) (the “Additional Smaaash Shares”) to I-AM Capital in exchange for newly issued shares of I-AM Capital common stock (the “Additional I-AM Shares”) that will enable such Smaaash Founders to retain their 33.6% ownership interest of Smaaash through their interest in I-AM Capital, within six months of the consummation of the Business Combination; and

 

WHEREAS, the board of directors of I-AM Capital has determined to issue 2,000,000 shares of I-AM Capital common stock, upon consummation of the Business Combination, to the Transferring Smaaash Founders as an upfront portion of the Additional I-AM Shares (the “Upfront I-AM Shares”), which shares shall be held in escrow until the transfer of the Additional Smaaash Shares to I-AM Capital; and

 

WHEREAS, the Proxy Statement referenced that I-AM Capital intended to issue a common stock dividend of an aggregate of 600,000 shares on all shares of I-AM Capital common stock that are outstanding at the end of the day immediately prior to the date of the closing of the Transaction, to each stockholder who beneficially owns such shares as of such time, on the condition that the holder of any such shares remains a stockholder immediately after the closing (the “Special Dividend”); and

 

WHEREAS, the board of directors of I-AM Capital has determined to cancel the Special Dividend.

 

 

 

NOW, THEREFORE, the purpose of this proxy statement supplement (this “Proxy Supplement”) is to inform the stockholders of I-AM Capital that:

 

the board of directors of I-AM Capital has set November 9, 2018 as the revised date of the special meeting;

the Subscription Agreement has been amended to allow for the issuance of the Upfront I-AM Shares to the Transferring Smaaash Founders;

the board of directors of I-AM Capital has decided to cancel the Special Dividend;

I-AM Capital has entered into a forward stock purchase agreement for approximately $5,500,000; and

the Smaaash Founders may, but are not obligated to, engage in private purchases and open market purchases of outstanding shares of I-AM Capital common stock.

 

This Proxy Supplement should be read in conjunction with the Proxy Statement. Capitalized terms used in this Proxy Supplement and not otherwise defined herein shall have the meanings set forth in the Proxy Statement.

 

Revised Date for the Special Meeting

 

As previously announced, the date for the special meeting, which was originally scheduled for October 4, 2018, was postponed to a to-be-determined later date.

 

The board of directors of I-AM Capital has determined that the special meeting will now be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, November 9, 2018, at the same location, namely the law offices of Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP, 1345 Avenue of the Americas, 11th Floor, New York, New York 10105. The Record Date for the special meeting is unchanged.

 

The bolded text in I-AM Capital’s letter to the stockholders and in the notice of the special meeting found in the Proxy Statement are hereby amended to read as follows:

 

Public stockholders who hold shares of I-AM Capital common stock on or before November 7, 2018 (two (2) business days before the special meeting) may elect to redeem their shares whether or not they are holders as of the record date, and whether or not they vote for the Business Combination Proposal.

 

All other references in the Proxy Statement to “October 2, 2018” with respect to providing a request for redemption are hereby amended to read as “November 7, 2018”, and the deadline for submitting such a request and for the delivery by stockholders of their I-AM Capital stock to I-AM Capital’s transfer agent in connection therewith shall now be on or before 4:30 p.m. Eastern time on November 7, 2018.

 

Issuance of Shares as Partial Payment

 

In order to incentivize the Transferring Smaaash Founders to comply with their obligation to transfer all of the Additional Smaaash Shares to I-AM Capital within six months of the closing of the Business Combination, I-AM Capital has further amended the Subscription Agreement (such addendum attached hereto as Annex A) to allow for I-AM Capital to issue the Upfront I-AM Shares to the Transferring Smaaash Founders upon the closing of the Business Combination. The issuance of such Upfront I-AM Shares will be held in escrow and shall be either, (i) if the Additional Smaaash Shares are not transferred in full to I-AM Capital within the designated six months, cancelled, or (ii) if the Additional Smaaash Shares are transferred in full to I-AM Capital within the designated six months, the Upfront I-AM Shares shall be released from Escrow and the number of Upfront I-AM Shares shall be deducted from the Additional I-AM Shares that will be issued to the Transferring Smaaash Founders upon the delivery of the Additional Smaaash Shares.

Cancellation of Special Dividend

 

Based on discussions with its bankers and other financial advisers, I-AM Capital no longer believes that the planned Special Dividend is necessary and, therefore, the board of directors of I-AM Capital has decided to cancel the Special Dividend. The Proxy Statement is hereby amended to remove all references to the Special Dividend. Consequently, the Sponsor shall not be required to cancel any of its shares as a result of the Transaction. The Company shall also withdraw its Registration Statement on Form S-1 for the registration of the shares that were to be issued in the Special Dividend, which Registration Statement was declared effective by the SEC on September 19, 2018.

 

Forward Stock Purchase Agreement

 

On November 2, 2018, I-AM Capital entered into a stock purchase agreement with Polar Asset Management Partners Inc. (“Seller”) pursuant to which Seller agreed to sell 490,000 shares of I-AM Capital common stock to I-AM Capital 30 days after the closing of the Business Combination (the “Polar Sale”). Seller has the right to sell such shares to third parties prior to the expiration of such 30-day period. In connection with the closing of the Polar Sale, I-AM Capital will pay Seller $11.23 for each of the shares of I-AM Capital common stock still held by Seller and I-AM Capital’s sponsor has agreed to transfer to Seller 150,000 restricted shares of I-AM Capital common stock currently held by I-AM Capital’s sponsor.

 

Privately Negotiated and Open Market Purchases

 

The Proxy Statement provides that in connection with the stockholder vote to approve the Transaction, our Sponsor, directors, executive officers, advisors or their affiliates may purchase shares of I-AM Capital common stock in privately negotiated transactions or in the open market either prior to or following the completion of the consummation of the Transaction; provided that none of the funds in the trust account will be used to purchase shares in such transactions and provided further that such persons will not make any such purchases when they are in possession of any material non-public information not disclosed to the seller of such shares or if such purchases would be prohibited by Regulation M under the Exchange Act.

 

The Proxy Statement is hereby amended to provide that the Smaaash Founders may, but have no current obligation to, also purchase shares of I-AM Capital common stock in privately negotiated transactions or in the open market either prior to or following the completion of the consummation of the Transaction, subject to the same conditions as our Sponsor, directors, executive officers, advisors or their affiliates.

 

Effect of this Proxy Supplement

 

Except as expressly set out in this Proxy Supplement, the Proxy Statement remains unchanged, continues to apply and should be considered (along with this Proxy Supplement) in casting your vote in connection with the special meeting. This Proxy Supplement does not change the proposals to be acted upon at the special meeting, which are described in the Proxy Statement.

 

No action in connection with this Proxy Supplement is required by any stockholder who has previously delivered a proxy and who does not wish to revoke or change the vote in that proxy.
