LanzaTech NZ, Inc is reaching a milestone as part of its mission to realize its merger and become a publicly traded company. The carbon capture and utilization company announced that AMCI Acquisition Corp. II (Nasdaq: AMCI) has scheduled a special meeting of its stockholders for February 1, 2023 at 11:00 a.m., Eastern Time, to approve the proposed business combination with LanzaTech.
Back in March 2022, LanzaTech announced it entered into a definitive merger agreement with AMCI Acquisition Corp. II – a publicly-traded special purpose acquisition company, and the merged company is expected to trade on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “LNZA”.
“We are thrilled to reach this important milestone in our journey towards becoming a public company via our partnership with AMCI. This transaction will enable a significant acceleration in the deployment of our CCT technology, bringing us as a society, one step closer to achieving a circular carbon economy and finding a solution for the challenges of decarbonizing modern heavy industry,” said Dr. Jennifer Holmgren, Chief Executive Officer of LanzaTech.
Now the next step of closing the Business Combination is approval by AMCI’s and LanzaTech’s stockholders and the satisfaction of other customary closing conditions. The combined company will be renamed LanzaTech Global, Inc.
AMCI shareholders are encouraged by the company to submit their votes as soon as possible. According to AMCI’s instructions, if they hold their shares in “street name,” meaning that the shares are held in an account at a brokerage firm, bank or other similar agent, they may vote prior to the Special Meeting by using their voting control number and instructions provided by the brokerage firm, bank or other similar agent.
