On August 9, 2022 the Company issued a press release announcing the results of the Special Meeting. A copy of the press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.


It is a condition to the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement that the Redbox Merger Proposal shall have been approved by the requisite vote of the Company’s stockholders as described in the proxy statement/information statement/prospectus. In light of the approval of the Redbox Merger Proposal at the Special Meeting, the Company anticipates that the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement (the “Transactions”) may occur on August 11, 2022, subject to the expiration or termination of the applicable waiting period under the Hart- Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the “HSR Act”) and the satisfaction or waiver of the other conditions to closing of the Transactions.
