Item 8.01. Other Events.

 

On April 3, 2023, TPG Pace Beneficial II Corp. (the “Company”) announced that it will redeem all of its outstanding Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 (the “Public Shares”), effective as of April 17, 2023, because the Company will not consummate an initial business combination within the time period required by its Amended and Restated Memorandum and Articles of Association (the “Articles”).

 

As stated in the Company’s Form S-1 and in the Articles, if the Company is unable to complete an initial business combination within 24 months from the closing of its initial public offering on April 16, 2021, the Company will:

 

  (i) 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 account (“Trust Account”), including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to the Company to pay its taxes (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of then Public Shares in issue, which redemption will completely extinguish public shareholders’ rights as shareholders (including the right to receive further liquidation distributions, if any), subject to applicable law; and

 

  (iii) as promptly as reasonably possible following such redemption, subject to the approval of the Company’s remaining shareholders and the Company’s board of directors, dissolve and liquidate, subject in each case to the Company’s obligations under Cayman Islands law, to provide for claims of creditors and other requirements of applicable law.

 

The balance of the Trust Account as of March 31, 2023 was $400,000,000, which includes the $400,000,000 in funds deposited into the Trust Account at the time of the Company’s initial public offering. The Company currently expects the per-share redemption price for the Public Shares will be approximately $10.00 (as finally determined, the “Redemption Amount”). The Company anticipates that the last trading day for the Public Shares will be April 14, 2023. As of April 17, 2023, the Public Shares will be deemed cancelled and will represent only the right to receive the Redemption Amount. After April 17, 2023, the Company intends to cease all operations except for those required to wind up the Company’s business.

 

Because April 16, 2023 is a Sunday, the Redemption Amount will be paid on the next business day, April 17, 2023, to the beneficial owners of Public Shares held in street name without any required action on their part. The Redemption Amount will be paid to record holders of Public Shares after delivery of their Public Shares to the Company’s transfer agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, on or after April 17, 2023.

 

There will be no redemption rights or liquidating distributions with respect to the 1,000,000 Class A ordinary shares purchased by TPG Pace Beneficial II Sponsor, Series LLC, the Company’s sponsor, in a private placement concurrent with the close of the Company’s initial public offering (the “Private Placement Shares”). The Private Placement Shares will be surrendered and cancelled.

 

The Company expects that the New York Stock Exchange will file a Form 25 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to delist its securities. The Company thereafter expects to file a Form 15 with the SEC to terminate the registration of its securities under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
