Here’s what investors need to know about the SPAC merger between Blade and Experience Investment.

  • Starting off, the merger will result in the newly-combined company taking on the Blade name.
  • It will also result in shares of EXPC stock continuing to trade on the Nasdaq Exchange.
  • It’s likely that the new combined will change EXPC stock over to a different ticker, but it hasn’t announced one yet.
  • The SPAC merger implies a pro forma equity value of $825 million for Blade once the deal is complete.
  • Blade will have $400 million in cash to work with once the deal closes.
  • That comes from $275 million in cash held in trust by Experience Investment.
  • The remaining $125 million comes from a private investment in public equity (PIPE).
  •  Both companies’ Boards of Directors have given their unanimous approval to the deal.
  • Now it just needs approval from EXPC and Blade shareholders, as well as completing other customary closing conditions.
  • So long as there is no trouble along the way, the two companies expect the deal to close in the first half of 2021.
  • Blade is a company focused on the creation of Electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (eVTOL) transportation routes.
  • It currently uses helicopters to offer quick transportation to people in urban areas.
  • However, it plans to switch over to eVTOL once they are ready.
  • This has it charging various rates to customers that are looking to move swiftly through cities and void the wait time that comes with ground-based transportation.
  • The urban air mobility market is expected to reach $125 billion by 2025 and increase to $650 billion over the next 10 years.

EXPC stock was up 7.3% as of Tuesday morning.
