Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure


As previously disclosed, ShoulderUp Technology Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) has called a special meeting of stockholders (the “Special Meeting”) to approve an amendment to the Company’s Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation (the “Charter”) to effect an extension of time for the Company to consummate an initial business combination (the “Charter Amendment Proposal”) from May 19, 2024 to November 19, 2024 or such earlier date as may be determined by the Company’s board of directors in its sole discretion.


In connection with the Special Meeting, the Company and ShoulderUp Technology Sponsor LLC (the “Sponsor”) intend to enter into one or more agreements (the “Non-Redemption Agreements”) with one or more stockholders pursuant to which, if such stockholders do not redeem (or validly rescind any redemption requests on) their shares of Class A common stock (the “Non-Redeemed Shares”) in connection with the Special Meeting, the Sponsor will agree to transfer to such investors shares of Class B common stock held by the Sponsor immediately following the consummation of an initial business combination if they continue to hold such Non-Redeemed Shares through the Special Meeting.


In addition, if the Charter Amendment Proposal is approved, the Sponsor will convert an aggregate of up to 10,450,000 of their shares of Class B common stock into Class A common stock. Upon conversion of Class B common stock to Class A common stock, such Class A common stock will not be entitled to receive funds from the trust account through redemptions or otherwise and will remain subject to the existing transfer restrictions.


The Non-Redemption Agreements are not expected to increase the likelihood that the Charter Amendment Proposal is approved by stockholders but is expected to increase the amount of funds that remain in the Company’s trust account following the Special Meeting.


As of May 7, 2024, there was approximately $21,342,377 on deposit in the trust account (including an amount of the interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account to be distributed to the Company in the future to pay taxes and which would not be included in the redemption amount and net of taxes payable). The funds in the trust account are currently maintained in cash in an interest-bearing demand deposit account at a bank until the earlier of consummation of a business combination and liquidation of the Company.




The foregoing summary of the Non-Redemption Agreements does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the form of Non-Redemption Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.


Participants in the Solicitation


The Company and its directors and executive officers and other persons may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from the Company’s shareholders in respect of the Special Meeting and the Charter Amendment Proposal and related matters. Information regarding the Company’s directors and executive officers is available in Company’s Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on April 26, 2024 (the “Proxy Statement”). Additional information regarding the participants in the proxy solicitation and a description of their direct and indirect interests are contained in the Proxy Statement (as defined further below).





No Offer or Solicitation


This communication shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy any securities, nor shall there be any sale of securities in any jurisdiction in which the offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to the registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. No offering of securities shall be made except by means of a prospectus meeting the requirements of Section 10 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.


Additional Information


The Company has filed a Proxy Statement with the SEC in connection with the Meeting to consider and vote upon the Charter Amendment Proposal and, beginning on or about April 29, 2024, mailed the Proxy Statement and other relevant documents to its stockholders as of the April 19, 2024 record date for the Special Meeting. The Company’s stockholders and other interested persons are advised to read the Proxy Statement and any other relevant documents that have been or will be filed with the SEC in connection with the Company’s solicitation of proxies for the Special Meeting because these documents contain important information about the Company, the Charter Amendment Proposal and related matters. Stockholders may also obtain a free copy of the Proxy Statement, as well as other relevant documents that have been or will be filed with the SEC, without charge, at the SEC’s website located at www.sec.gov or by directing a request to: ShoulderUp Technology Acquisition Corp, 125 Townpark Drive, Suite 300, Kennesaw, GA 30144, (650) 276-7040.
