Li-Cycle Announces “Redemption Fair Market Value” in Connection with Redemption of its Outstanding Warrants

Holders who elect to surrender their Warrants on a “Make-Whole Exercise” prior to the Redemption Date of January 26, 2022 will receive 0.253 Common Shares per Warrant

Li-Cycle Holdings Corp. (NYSE: LICY) (“Li-Cycle” or the “Company”), an industry leader in lithium-ion battery resource recovery and recycling in North America, today announced the “Redemption Fair Market Value” in connection with its previously announced redemption of its outstanding warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase common shares of the Company (the “Common Shares”) that remain outstanding at 5:00 p.m. New York City time on January 26, 2022 (the “Redemption Date”). Based on the Redemption Fair Market Value, Warrant holders who surrender their Warrants on a “Make-Whole Exercise” prior to the Redemption Date will receive 0.253 Common Shares per Warrant.

On December 27, 2021, the Company announced that it will redeem all of the outstanding Warrants on the Redemption Date, for a redemption price of $0.10 per Warrant. At the direction of the Company, the Company’s warrant agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company (“CST”), delivered a notice of redemption (the “Redemption Notice”) to each of the registered holders of the outstanding Warrants. At any time prior to 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date, the Warrants may be: (1) exercised by the Warrant holders for cash, at an exercise price of $11.50 per Common Share, or (2) surrendered by the Warrant holders on a “cashless basis” (a “Make-Whole Exercise”), in which case the surrendering holder will receive a number of Common Shares determined in accordance with the terms of the Warrant Agreement and based on: (i) the period of time between the Redemption Date and the expiration of the Warrants, and (ii) the “redemption fair market value” (being the volume-weighted average price of the Common Shares for the ten trading days immediately following the date of the Redemption Notice) (the “Redemption Fair Market Value”). Today, CST delivered a notice (the “Redemption Fair Market Value Notice”) to the registered holders of the outstanding Warrants informing them that: (i) the Redemption Fair Market Value is $9.45, and (ii) as a result, holders who surrender their Warrants on a “cashless basis” will receive 0.253 Common Shares per Warrant.

Any Warrants that have not been exercised for cash or surrendered pursuant to a Make-Whole Exercise by 5:00 p.m. New York City time on the Redemption Date (being January 26, 2022) will be void and no longer exercisable, and the holders of those Warrants will be entitled to receive only the redemption price of $0.10 per Warrant.
