After the shareholder vote had been postponed six times in recent months, Digital World (DWAC) received some good news late last month when shareholders decided to give the company an extra year to finalize a transaction. By making their decision, the DWAC holders gave the SPAC until September 8, 2023 to close a contract.
Trump’s SPAC shareholders opted to give DWAC an additional year to complete the merger.
Holder clearance was announced via webcast by DWAC CEO Patrick Orlando. The deadline was extended to September 8, 2023, thanks to Digital World (DWAC).
Shareholders voted at noon on Tuesday to give Digital World (DWAC), Trump’s social media company, another year to reach a deal that would allow it to go public. This vote had been put off six times in the past few months.
Holder’s approval comes at the same time as Twitter CEO and billionaire Elon Musk’s decision to let Trump back on the social media site after users voted to do so in a poll Musk ran after the attack on the U.S. Capitol in January 2021 led to Trump’s suspension.
Trump hasn’t tweeted since being reinstated, despite having 4.62 million more Truth Social followers than he does on Twitter.
According to news reports, Trump told a gathering of the Republican Jewish Coalition on Saturday that he thinks Twitter has a lot of problems and that he plans to keep using his own platform.
