Item 5.03 Amendments to Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws; Change in Fiscal Year.

 

The disclosure contained in Item 5.07 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.03.

 

Item 5.07 Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders.

 

On February 29, 2024, Capitalworks Emerging Markets Acquisition Corp (the “Company”) held an extraordinary general meeting in lieu of an annual general meeting of shareholders (the “Meeting”). At the Meeting, the following proposals were considered and acted upon by the shareholders of the Company:

 

(i) a proposal to amend, by special resolution, the Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association, as amended (the “Extension Amendment”) (a) to extend the date by which the Company would be required to consummate a business combination from March 3, 2024 to March 3, 2025 and (b) to permit the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”), in its sole discretion, to elect to wind up the Company’s operations on an earlier date than March 3, 2025 (including prior to March 3, 2024) (the “Extension Amendment Proposal”);

 

(ii) a proposal to ratify, by ordinary resolution, the selection by the audit committee of the Board, Marcum LLP to serve as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2024 (the “Auditor Ratification Proposal”); and

 

(iii) a proposal to approve, by ordinary resolution of the sole holder of the Class B ordinary share of the Company, with a nominal or par value of $0.0001 per share, the re-appointment of each of Whitney Baker as a Class I Director until the 2027 annual general meeting of the Company (the “Director Appointment Proposal”).

 

The number of votes cast for or against, as well as the number of abstentions as to each proposal, are set forth below.

 

1. Extension Amendment Proposal

 

For  Against  Abstain
8,359,690  492,311  0

 

Accordingly, the Extension Amendment Proposal was approved.

 

2. Auditor Ratification Proposal

 

For  Against  Abstain
8,360,564  491,437  0

  

Accordingly, the Auditor Ratification Proposal was approved.

 

3. Director Appointment Proposal

 

   For  Withheld
Whitney Baker  1  0
       

As previously disclosed, Michael Faber was nominated for re-appointment under the Director Appointment Proposal. However, because of Mr. Faber’s resignation on February 23, 2024, only the re-appointment of Whitney Baker as a Class I Director was considered at the Meeting.

 

Accordingly, the re-appointment of Whitney Baker as a Class I director was approved.

 

 

 

 

As there were sufficient votes at the time of the Meeting to approve each of the above proposals, the Adjournment Proposal, which had been previously voted on by proxy, was not presented to shareholders at the Meeting.

  

Shareholders holding 3,036,666 shares of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares exercised their right to redeem such Class A ordinary shares for a pro rata portion of the funds in the Company’s trust account (the “Trust Account”) established in connection with its initial public offering (the “Redemption”). As a result, approximately $33,616,850 (approximately $11.07 per share) will be removed from the Trust Account to pay such holders.

 

Following the Redemption, there are 6,961,730 Class A ordinary shares and one Class B ordinary share issued and outstanding. As a result of the Redemption, CEMAC Sponsor LP, the sponsor of the Company, holds approximately 82.6% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Class A ordinary shares.

 

The Company filed the Extension Amendment with the Cayman Islands Registrar of Companies on February 29, 2024. A copy of the Extension Amendment is attached hereto as Exhibit 3.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

EXTRACT OF THE MINUTES OF AN EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING IN LIEU OF AN

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF SHAREHOLDERS OF THE COMPANY

HELD ON 29 FEBRUARY 2024

 

 

The Chairperson at the Extraordinary General Meeting in lieu of an Annual General Meeting of the Company held on 29 February 2024 (the "Meeting"), hereby certifies that this is a true extract of the minutes of the Meeting in respect of Proposal No.1:

 

1.PROPOSAL NO. 1 — THE EXTENSION AMENDMENT PROPOSAL

 

1.1RESOLVED, by special resolution, that the amended and restated memorandum of association and articles of association of the Company be amended by the deletion of the existing Article 162 and the insertion of the following language as a new Article 162:

 

"162 (a) In the event that the Company does not consummate a Business Combination within the thirty nine month period following the closing of the IPO (or such earlier date as determined by the Board, in its sole discretion, and included in a public announcement) (the “Termination Date”)

 

(i)the Company will cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up;

 

(ii)as promptly as reasonably possible but not more than ten business days thereafter, redeem the Public Shares, at a per-Share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Fund, including interest earned on the Trust Fund and not previously released to the Company to pay taxes, if any, (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay winding up and dissolution expenses), divided by the number of Public Shares then in issue, which redemption will completely extinguish public Members’ rights as Members (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any); and

 

(iii)as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the Company’s remaining Members and the Directors, liquidate and dissolve, subject in the case of sub-articles 162(a)(i) and 162(a)(ii), to its obligations under Cayman Islands law to provide for claims of creditors and in all cases subject to the other requirements of applicable law. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any Founders acquire Public Shares in or after the IPO, they will each be entitled to receive liquidation distributions from the Trust Fund with respect to such Public Shares if the Company fails to complete a Business Combination by the applicable Termination Date.

 

(b)    If any amendment is made to Article 162(a) that would modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to provide holders of the Class A Shares the right to have their shares redeemed in connection with the Company’s initial Business Combination or to redeem 100% of the Public Shares if the Company does not complete its initial Business Combination within the thirty nine month period following the closing of the IPO or with respect to any other provision relating to the rights of holders of the Class A Shares or pre-initial Business Combination activity, each holder of Public Shares shall be provided with the opportunity to redeem their Public Shares upon the approval of any such amendment at a per-Share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the Trust Fund, including interest earned on the Trust Fund and not previously released to the Company to pay its taxes, if any, divided by the number of Public Shares then in issue. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company shall not redeem Public Shares in connection with such amendment that would cause the Company’s net tangible assets to be less than US$5,000,001 following such redemptions."
