DevvStream Enters into LOI to Pursue Combination with Special Purpose Acquisition Company
DevvStream would be the first pure-play carbon credit generator listed on the NASDAQ
VANCOUVER, BC, July 13, 2023 — DevvStream Holdings Inc. (“DevvStream” or the “Company”) (CBOE:DESG)(OTCQB:DSTRF)(FSE:CQ0) today announced the signing of a non-binding letter of intent (the "LOI") for a proposed business combination (the “Transaction”). The terms of the LOI provide that a Special Purpose Acquisition Corporation (the “SPAC”) will acquire DevvStream.

DevvStream expects to announce additional details regarding the proposed business combination when a definitive agreement is executed.

"We believe this Transaction will increase DevvStream’s visibility in the marketplace, provide heightened access to capital, improve liquidity and diversify our shareholder base. Our next step is to negotiate and execute a definitive agreement, a process which is already underway."
Completion of the Transaction is subject to, among other matters, the completion of due diligence, the negotiation of a definitive agreement providing for the Transaction, satisfaction of the conditions negotiated therein, applicable regulatory approvals and approval of the Transaction by the board and stockholders of both DevvStream and the SPAC.
