Approval marks a significant milestone in the process to spin-off SG DevCo
Awaits final Nasdaq approval for independent listing
Safe & Green Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: SGBX) (“Safe & Green Holdings” or the “Company”), a leading developer, designer, and fabricator of modular structures for residential, commercial, and point-of-care medicine, today announced that the Company received the SEC approval of its Form 10, the General Form for Registration of Securities, used to register a class of securities for potential trading on U.S. exchanges necessary to spin-off of its real estate development subsidiary, SG DevCo.
The Company is now awaiting final review and approval of the transaction by Nasdaq, which it expects to receive early in the third quarter of 2023. Once the transaction receives Nasdaq approval, the Company will move forward with its plan to list SG DevCo on the Nasdaq exchange by announcing a record date and anticipated listing date, within approximately 30 days of Nasdaq’s approval of the transaction. The spin-off and subsequent listing on the Nasdaq exchange are expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2023.
The Company plans to distribute thirty percent of SG DevCo to its current shareholders, with Safe & Green Holdings retaining seventy percent, creating significant value for existing shareholders. This spin-off lets current Safe & Green shareholders automatically own shares in SG DevCo without having to take any action. A third-party assessment of fairness has valued SG DevCo's fair market value at an impressive $74 million.
“This approval is significant for SG DevCo as it moves us one step closer to becoming a standalone, publicly traded company,” David Villarreal, CEO of SG DevCo noted. “This spin-off will only further fuel SG DevCo’s growth and unique position within the real estate development ecosphere.”
“The process to spinout SG DevCo began 18 months ago and thanks to the hard work of the Safe & Green Holdings team, we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel,” commented Paul Galvin, Chairman and CEO of Safe & Green Holdings. “I strongly believe SG DevCo will operate as a leader in the space. As we have discussed in the past, we hold over 4,000 units in various stages of development within the Company, and our outlook could not be brighter.”
“The SEC approval is certainly a milestone in the process that should be celebrated,” commented Nicolai Brune, CFO of SG DevCo. “While the work is of course ongoing, we are confident that this strategy will lead to further growth and success, for both SG DevCo and Safe & Green Holdings.”
The Company will provide further updates regarding the anticipated Nasdaq record and listing dates when available.
