Switchback shares have quadrupled to nearly $40 since September when the SPAC announced a deal to merge with ChargePoint, a leading electric vehicle (EV) charging network. The deal is also anchored by a large PIPE investment from institutions including Baillie Gifford and Neuberger Berman, indicating the total cash requirement is almost certainly satisfied.

However, SwitchBack still needs to achieve a quorum of a majority of shares voted in order for the deal to close. As of Thursday last week, proxies had been submitted for only approximately 45{efe5d79870c08482e17ab0c97855f89429dac5f22c46026d3ca83573faec2208} of outstanding shares, which led SwitchBack to adjourn the meeting until February 25. Any investor who held shares on December 16 can still vote, even if the shares have since been sold, and SwitchBack has encouraged shareholders to vote to prevent any further delays.  For additional information regarding voting your shares see https://switchback-energy.com/vote/

Mr. McNeill and Mr. Mutrie will discussed:

  • Progress towards quorum since the meeting was adjourned
  • An overview of the merger with ChargePoint and investment highlights
  • The strong reception to the deal as measured in various ways
  • The recent evolution of the SPAC market and involvement of more individual investors
  • Why it is important for all shareholders to vote, regardless of how much stock they own
  • How investors vote shares through their brokers
