New Era Helium and Accretion Acquisition Corp. Announce Letter of Intent for Proposed Business Combination

 

MIDLAND, Texas, and DENVER, Colorado, October 5, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – New Era Helium Corp. (“NEH”) and Accretion Acquisition Corp. (“Accretion”) (Nasdaq: ENER, ENERR, ENERU, and ENERW) are pleased to announce they have entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent (the “Letter of Intent”) for a proposed business combination (the “Business Combination”). Accretion is a special purpose acquisition company formed for the purpose of consummating a business combination with one or more businesses, and its securities are currently listed for trading on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“NASDAQ”). NEH is expected to hold a majority interest in the equity, on a fully diluted basis, of the combined company at the closing of the Business Combination. NEH and Accretion expect to announce additional details regarding the proposed Business Combination if a definitive business combination agreement is executed.

 

E. Will Gray II, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NEH, said, “New Era Helium was specifically formed as a scalable platform for the production of helium. The recent announcement of our off-take agreements for our produced Helium was a first step, in our longer-term strategy. This transaction creates an aggregation model for upstream helium and positions the company as one of the first to list on a major exchange. We have trademarked the term “Responsibly Sourced HeliumTM”, while management and the Board will look to further expand our business while focusing on our ESG credentials. The combination of our business with Accretion Acquisition Corp. will support this expansion as both management teams have extensive experience within the energy transition space. We have engaged ROTH Capital Partners as our financial advisor to help us execute on this strategy.”

 

Brad Morse, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Accretion, said, “We are excited about the transaction with New Era and look forward to supporting the evolution of its business, which is underpinned by growing demand for helium resulting predominantly from increasing consumption relating to the semiconductor and aerospace sectors.”

 

Under the terms of the Letter of Intent, the current management team of NEH is expected to be the management team of the combined company following the Business Combination. The Board of Directors of the combined company will consist of those members mutually agreed upon by the parties, subject to the terms of the definitive business combination agreement.

 

The Parties intend to transition directly to the negotiation of the definitive business combination agreement and other related agreements (the “Definitive Documents”) to effectuate the Business Combination, with the execution of the Definitive Documents expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2023.

 

The completion of the Business Combination is subject to, among other matters, the completion of due diligence, the negotiation of the Definitive Documents, satisfaction of the conditions negotiated therein and approval of the transaction by the Board of Directors and shareholders of Accretion. There is no guarantee that the Business Combination will be consummated under the terms of the Letter of Intent, or at all.
