Flame Acquisition Heads into Sable Offshore Vote with Minimal Redemptions

Flame Acquisition in an 8-K disclosed that only 2.47% of its outstanding shares were redeemed ahead of the upcoming vote on its merger deal with Sable Offshore, a Nova Scotia-based natural gas exploration consortium. The SPAC's shareholders will vote on the deal Feb. 12.

Flame said 150,823 shares were redeemed, removing $1,573,962.89 (approximately $10.44 per share) from the trust. That still leaves the SPAC with approximately $62.2 million.

The merger was announced in November 2022 at an $883 million enterprise value. At that time, the SPAC said it intended to pursue subscriptions totalling up to $400 million. Since then, PIPE subscriptions have increased to about $520 million — of the largest private investment packages put together by a SPAC in years.

Flame has also secured a $623 million five-year term loan at 10% annual interest. The loan requires a $19 million deposit up front.

Sable has an agreement to acquire the Santa Ynez oil field in Federal waters off the California coast and associated onshore processing and pipeline assets from Exxon Mobil and Mobil Pacific Pipeline Company for $625 million. Read more.
