NEWARK, Calif., September 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Lucid group, which sets new standards with its advanced luxury electric vehicles, today announced that the company will repurchase all of its outstanding public warrants (the “public warrants”) to purchase Class A common shares of the company that were issued under the warrant agreement dated July 29, 2020 by and between the Company and Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company as agent for warrants (as assigned to and borne by the Company and Equiniti Trust Company, as transfer agent and agent for warrants), within the framework of the units sold within the framework of the initial public offering of the Company (the “IPO”), for a repurchase price of $ 0.01 by Public subscription warrant (the “Redemption Price”) which remain in circulation at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time to October 8, 2021 (the “Redemption Date”).

“We are pleased to announce the cashless redemption of our public warrants,” said Peter Rawlinson, CEO and CTO of Lucid Group. “This is an important step in streamlining our capital structure to eliminate outstanding public mandates as we see growing confidence in Lucid’s groundbreaking in-house electric vehicle technology, which will soon hit the market in Lucid Air. Lucid has elected in part to require the cashless exercise of public warrants to allow warrant holders, including our retail investors, to hold shares of Lucid without cash exercise. We also expect that this action will reduce the dilution of these public warrants. “

The public warrants are listed on the Nasdaq under the symbol “LCIDW”. Each public warrant entitles its holder to purchase one class A common share for a purchase price of $ 11.50 per share, subject to adjustments (the “Strike Price”). Under the Warrants Agreement, Lucid has the right to redeem all outstanding public warrants if the last sale price of the Class A common shares is at least $ 18.00 per share on each of the twenty trading days during any thirty trading day period ending on the third trading day preceding the date on which a redemption notice is given. Lucid has instructed the Warrant Agent to deliver a redemption notice to each of the registered holders of the outstanding Public Warrants. Class A common share purchase warrants that were issued under the private placement warrant agreement simultaneously with the IPO and still held by the original holders thereof or their authorized assignees are not subject to this redemption notice.

The public warrants will cease trading on the Nasdaq at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the Redemption Date. All public warrants that have not been exercised at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the Redemption Date will be delisted, void and no longer exercisable, and their holders will have no rights with respect to such public warrants, except to receive the redemption price or as otherwise described in the Redemption Notice for Holders who hold their Public Warrants in “street name.”

In addition, in accordance with the warrant agreement, the board of directors of Lucid has elected to require that upon delivery of the redemption notice, all public warrants be exercised only on a “free basis.” numerary “. As a result, holders can no longer exercise the public warrants and receive Class A common shares in exchange for a cash payment of the shares. $ 11.50 by exercise price of the warrants. Instead, a holder exercising a public warrant will be deemed to pay the $ 11.50 by the exercise price of the warrant by the delivery of 0.5542 of a class A ordinary share (the fraction determined as described below) that this holder would have been entitled to receive during the exercise in cash of a public warrant. Therefore, under the cash-free exercise of the public warrants, warrant holders who have exercised warrants will receive 0.4458 Class A common shares for each public warrant surrendered for the purpose of warrants. exercise.

The number of Class A common shares that each warrant holder who exercises their right will receive under the cashless exercise (instead of paying the $ 11.50 by cash exercise price of the public warrants) has been calculated in accordance with the terms of the warrants agreement and is equal to the quotient obtained by dividing (x) the product of the number of shares underlying the warrants. public warrants held by this holder of warrants, multiplied by the difference between $ 20,751, the last average selling price of the Class A common shares for the ten trading days ending on September 2, 2021, the third trading day preceding the date of the redemption notice (the “fair market value”) and $ 11.50, by (y) the fair market value. If a holder of public warrants, after taking into account all of that holder’s public warrants exercised at one time, would be entitled to receive a fraction of interest in a Class A common share, the number of The shares that the holder will be entitled to receive will be rounded down to the whole number of shares down.

Questions regarding the redemption and exercise of public warrants may be directed to Equiniti Trust Company, PO Box 64874, Saint-Paul, MN 55164-0874, Attention: EQ Shareowner Services, telephone number (833) 914-2119.

A new art festival is making its way to Orange County next year. The Beacon will be a biennial, county-wide public art festival taking place in Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Hillsborough in the summer of 2022.

The Beacon aims to become a major destination for art festivals and generate spending at restaurants, shops and other local county services from visitors attending the festival.

Katie Murray is the Orange County Arts Commission director. She recently presented the plans for the Beacon to the Orange County Commissioners Council Meeting.

Murray said the festival has three goals: showcase artwork in addition to financially support the artists, support the struggling downtown community during the summer months, and provide a free festival accessible to all. community members.

“Of course I tend to think that the arts can solve almost any problem,” Murray said. “I’ve been thinking for a long time what event can we create that will really put Orange County on the map. [This festival could] Pulls us a bit out of the shadows, at least creatively, that we seem to fall into and in terms of being in the Triangle with Durham and Raleigh, and something to become a new signature event for our community.

Murray said there were 14 community partners involved in the festival, including the Orange County Arts Commission, the Tri-Towns, the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership and the Orange County Economic Development.

The festival focuses on three-dimensional art like sculpture, the art of installation and the art of projection. Murray said there will be a national call for artists to be judged by a panel of experts. Those accepted will receive an allowance for travel and installation costs.

Outdoor locations will be matched with artists according to their artistic medium. During the festival, the public can vote for their favorite works of art through an online portal. At the end of the festival, cash prizes will be awarded to the jury vote winners as well as the audience vote winner.

Murray said the Beacon is modeled after ArtPrize, a biennial festival in Grand Rapids that attracts 500,000 attendees and an estimated economic impact of $ 33 million.

“It’s obviously a goal, but I think if we can start our first year off on the right foot, I can see this event end up having the same impact as ArtPrize,” said Murray.

Orange County Commissioners Chair Renee Price said she believes the festival will not only have a creative impact for the county, but also a financial impact.

“It will have a ripple effect and I think it will pay off,” Price said. “It will bring happiness and joy, which we will need after this pandemic. We’re going to try to get everyone together, so it’s going to be very, very good.

The festival’s budget should be finalized by November and the call for artists will begin in December. The festival will start on July 15, 2022 and run until August 15, 2022.

WASHINGTON – Jill Biden, the first lady, quietly started another school year as an English teacher on Tuesday, returning to the physical classroom after a year of distance learning.

Dr Biden, with a doctorate in educational leadership, teaches writing at Northern Virginia Community College, where she taught full-time as a second lady throughout the Obama administration. As first lady, she is the first to balance her career with public office.

Those taking Dr. Biden’s classes will learn through a hybrid model, with at least half of the semester’s classes taking place in person, according to a schedule listed on the school’s website. All students are required to wear masks and practice social distancing.

Sending the first lady back into the classroom will reinforce President Biden’s promise that his administration can safely bring students back into in-person learning, even as the Delta variant spreads across the United States. It will also give one of the most influential people in the White House the chance to speak firsthand about the challenges facing administrators, teachers and students.

Over the spring and summer, the administration sent Dr Biden to US states – including several deeply conservative – to urge residents to wear masks and get vaccinated. During the short period that health officials recommended that vaccinated Americans remove their masks in public places, Dr Biden was the first administration official to do so in a high-profile manner: she removed her mask in leaving his plane to visit a pop-up vaccination clinic in West Virginia.

At stops in other states, including Tennessee, Mississippi, Michigan and Alabama, Dr Biden also pleaded with Americans to stop politicizing the virus.

“As we return to our classrooms this fall, it will take all of us together to keep our schools safe and open,” she said. wrote in an essay for Time magazine last week. “We have to remember that our enemy is the virus, not each other. “

But the rise of the Delta variant – and the country’s response to a further rise in the number of coronavirus deaths and illnesses – shows just how complicated it is to send students back to school. Children under 12 cannot yet receive the vaccine, and pediatric hospitalizations for Covid-19 have skyrocketed over the summer, although questions remain as to whether the Delta variant causes more illness. serious in children than the original virus.

The governors of several states, including Florida, where the virus has hit the most, have made it more difficult for school districts to impose the wearing of masks. In Arizona, where school mask warrants are banned, thousands of students and teachers have had to self-quarantine.

Dr Biden, for her part, has long been a back-to-class advocate and has used her role as first lady to highlight the work of school districts that have remained open throughout the pandemic to educate students about the using a hybrid model. In March, she and Miguel Cardona, the secretary of education, visited classrooms in Connecticut and Pennsylvania where students wore masks and sat behind plastic dividers as they went about their day.

Beyond the many interviews and sanctioned appearances she gave on the subject, Dr Biden fiercely protected her life as a teacher. The East Wing made no comment on its first day back on Tuesday.

“I can confirm that Jill is teaching and I think she should be an inspiration to women around the world and a message that no matter what your spouse can do, you can have your own career,” Jimmie McClellan , dean of liberal arts at Northern Virginia Community College and supervisor of Dr Biden, wrote in an email this summer in response to a request to discuss the first lady’s work.

“Any spotlight should shine on what she does off campus,” he wrote. “Here she should have her peace.”

A longtime member of the National Education Association, Dr Biden also championed the administration’s efforts to push front-row teachers to receive vaccines earlier this year, a move that helped allay educators’ concerns, according to which they would be forced to return to work without adequate protection against the virus.

The president has promised to send the children back to school this fall, and many students have already returned to class. On Thursday, he is expected to give a speech on his administration’s efforts to “pull all the levers to bring the pandemic under control,” according to a statement released Tuesday by the White House. Mr Biden is expected to discuss the reopening of schools in detail in this speech.

Man wanted for murder of woman at local art studio connected to NoDa Crime Spree https://cjs-engraving.com/man-wanted-for-murder-of-woman-at-local-art-studio-connected-to-noda-crime-spree/ Tue, 07 Sep 2021 21:40:56 +0000 https://cjs-engraving.com/man-wanted-for-murder-of-woman-at-local-art-studio-connected-to-noda-crime-spree/ CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department are asking the public for help in locating the man charged with a wave of crimes that includes the murder of a 29-year-old woman at a studio art in NoDa, assaulting a woman along the Greenway, and breaking into The Exchange at 36th North Davidson […]]]>


CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department are asking the public for help in locating the man charged with a wave of crimes that includes the murder of a 29-year-old woman at a studio art in NoDa, assaulting a woman along the Greenway, and breaking into The Exchange at 36th North Davidson Street.

Malek Moore is currently wanted for the murder of Gabryelle Allnutt on East 22nd Street. Police also said Moore was linked to an investigation in Greensboro, North Carolina.

“There is a dangerous individual that we want to get off the street and we want to get him off the streets as fast as possible,” said CMPD captain Jim McNally.

Warrants for murder, first degree burglary, kidnapping, assault, break and enter and theft after break and enter have been issued against Moore. If anyone has seen him or has information about his whereabouts, 911 is immediately called.

Police said Moore cut his hair short and was known to travel via the rail system. He was last seen wearing black pants, a white shirt, a black skullcap and black Nike shoes. Police said Moore did not know any of the victims.

“It’s terrible. It’s sad that it must have happened,” said Kevin Samuel, owner of Exchange at 3e.

Police believe that after Allnutt’s murder Moore broke into the Exchange on 36th Street. Samuel posted surveillance footage on Instagram showing someone walking through the front door and stealing a cash register.

“Our door basically looked like what had happened on the street,” Samuel said.

Court records show Moore was just released from prison on August 20 after serving more than eight years on usual break and enter charges. Moore is on the run from parole, but now faces an additional murder charge and other crimes.

Allnutt was found unconscious just before 6 a.m. on September 6, according to CMPD. Allnutt was an art professor at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts, according to an Aug.15 Facebook post.

She was staying in Charlotte after she evacuated from Hurricane Ida. She posted a message on Instagram thanking the community for providing “shelter, friendship, employment and peace in such an unforeseen and financially devastating situation for most.”

The wave of crimes is impacting the narrow community of Noda.

“It’s horrible,” said Joey Hewell, co-owner of the Noda Company store, “it’s really one of those things that a tight-knit community known for its art and diversity, someone would come by. and do something like this. “

No other details have been released at this time.
