(NEO: SCV.A.U, SCV.WT.U, OTCQX: SBVCF) ("SCAC"), a special purpose acquisition company, today announced renewed momentum ahead of the close of its proposed Qualifying Transaction.  Specifically, SCAC has finalized non-redemption agreements with certain equity holders representing approximately US$34.5 million of escrowed proceeds.  These proceeds will be released upon consummation of SCAC's Qualifying Transaction, pursuant to which SCAC will acquire, directly or indirectly, all of the equity of CMG Partners, Inc.

Michael Auerbach, SCAC's Chairman, said, "The last 10 days affirm shareholder support for The Parent Company and our vertically-integrated strategy which – alone among peers – will support robust organic growth as well as future mergers and acquisitions.  Just as importantly, these operational attributes will be underpinned by a brand strategy that leverages unparalleled cultural influence and consumer reach.We are grateful for these early, tangible signs of support and belief in our potential, and look forward to the anticipated close of TPCO later this week."

SCAC anticipates that the Transaction will close on or around January 15, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.
