Ackman SPAC Drops Universal Music Deal, Passes Rights to Pershing Square -- Update

07/19/2021 | 03:38am EDT

By Adria Calatayud

Pershing Square Tontine Holdings Ltd., a blank-check company led by hedge-fund manager William Ackman, said Monday that it has decided not to proceed with its proposed acquisition of a 10% stake in Universal Music Group and will assign its share-purchase deal to Pershing Square Holdings Ltd.

Vivendi SE --Universal's majority owner-- said it has approved Pershing Square Tontine's request to assign its rights and obligations under a June 20 agreement to investment funds with significant economic interests or management positions held by Mr. Ackman.

The French media company said the equity interest eventually acquired in UMG will now be between 5% and 10%. If it falls below 10%, Vivendi said it would still sell the additional interest to other investors before the planned spinoff of UMG into an Amsterdam-listed company in September.

On June 20, Pershing Square Tontine agreed to acquire 10% of the ordinary shares of UMG in a deal valuing the world's largest music company --home to stars including Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Queen and the Beatles-- at about $40 billion.

Pershing Square Tontine said its decision to withdraw from the deal was prompted by issues raised by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The company said its board didn't believe the deal could have been completed given the SEC's position.

The blank-check company said its board concluded that assigning its UMG stock-purchase deal to Pershing Square was in the best interest of shareholders. Pershing Square Tontine said Pershing Square intends to be a long-term UMG shareholder and work with management to create value.

Pershing Square Tontine said it will now seek a new transaction, which will be structured as a conventional SPAC merger. The company said it has 18 months remaining to close a deal.
