Mr. Harris added, “We look forward to entering the second half of the year as a public company with our business combination with TCAC expected to close imminently. Moving ahead, the additional funding and access to the capital markets enables us to continue our strong organic growth trajectory through further enhancing our industry-leading SaaS platform with additional functionality to drive highly focused and effective loyalty programs and marketing communication campaigns. We also intend to pursue strategic M&A opportunities as we execute on our vision of building out a leading technology business that plays a pivotal role across the cannabis ecosystem.”

Enhanced Terms of the Business Combination

As previously announced, TCAC and springbig agreed to amend the terms of the proposed merger agreement that was initially announced on November 9, 2021 to reflect current market conditions.

The amended and restated merger agreement reduces the total enterprise value of springbig to $275 million, representing an 8% reduction in valuation from the initial agreement. In addition, a bonus pool of up to 1 million shares of TCAC common stock will be allocated pro-rata to non-redeeming public stockholders up to a maximum of one bonus share for each share held, effectively reducing their cost basis. TCAC’s sponsor will forfeit 1 million shares of TCAC common stock in connection with the proposed business combination.

Special Meeting Details

The Special Meeting of TCAC shareholders will be held at the offices of Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP, located at 450 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10017, or shareholders can attend online via live webcast. Shareholders of record as of March 21, 2022 are entitled to receive notice of and to vote at the Special Meeting. Shareholders are encouraged to vote before 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday, June 8, 2022.

If the proposals at the Special Meeting are approved, the parties anticipate that the business combination will close shortly thereafter, subject to the satisfaction of other closing conditions. Upon consummation of the business combination, TCAC intends to change its name to SpringBig Holdings, Inc. and expects its common stock and warrants to remain listed on the NASDAQ Global Select stock market under the new ticker symbols of “SBIG” and “SBIGW” respectively.
