Freehold, NJ, Feb. 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jensyn Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:JSYN) (“Jensyn” or the “Company”), a company formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition or other similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to enter into a business combination with Peck Electric Co., the largest commercial solar EPC (engineering - procurement - contracting) company in the Northeast and ranked 60th in the USA by Solar Power World.
At the closing of the business combination, the stockholders of Peck Electric Co. will exchange their shares in Peck Electric Co. for 3,234,501 shares of Jensyn common stock representing approximately 59% of Jensyn’s outstanding shares after giving effect to the business combination. In addition, the stockholders of Peck Electric Co. will be entitled to an additional 898,473 shares of Jensyn common stock if Jensyn’s adjusted EBITDA is $5,000,000 or more for the twelve-month period following the closing of the business combination or the closing price of Jensyn’s common stock is $12.00 or more at any time during such twelve-month period.
Upon the closing of the business combination, Peck Electric Co. will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company that will be named “The Peck Company, Inc.” (“Peck”) whose common stock is expected to be listed on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "PECK.”
Jeffrey Peck is the CEO and second-generation owner of the family business founded by his father Harvey Peck and business partner Bernie Taylor in 1972. Diane (Peck) Cone and Neil Cone owned and managed the business from 1982 until Jeffrey Peck joined the business in the early 1990s. Jeffrey Peck said, “Our 47-year legacy began as an electrical contracting company serving the needs of the Vermont community as the largest electrical contractor in the State. Solar construction was a natural extension of our capabilities and of our core values, but we strategically entered the solar market only after solar arrays became a profitable investment. Now that Wall Street is investing capital to construct and own solar arrays as an asset class, it is the perfect time for Peck to continue its journey as a public company in order to serve the growing needs for renewable energy in other states across the country.”
Fredrick (Kip) Myrick has been working at Peck for over 30 years. He is the VP of Solar and responsible for constructing the largest solar arrays in the State of Vermont. “Our teams employ industry-leading construction methods and continue to innovate and to increase efficiency. Our immediate and scalable access to skilled, Union workforce in other States at competitive rates is a unique advantage for our growth trajectory that allows us to control our operating costs.”
Peck is on target for record-breaking results this year with a pipeline of commercial solar projects across the Northeast. The growth strategy will also include M&A to expand capabilities, geographic reach, and cash-flow. “We are excited about new opportunities for growth as well as new relationships with investors as we now open our profitable family company to public shareholders that want to be a part of our journey.” said Jeffrey Peck.
The closing of the business combination is subject to a number of conditions, including the approval of Jensyn’s Board of Directors and stockholders, and Jensyn’s reasonable satisfaction with the results of its due diligence investigation of Peck.
The senior management of Peck will replace Jensyn’s existing management team following the closing of the business combination.
Exit Strategy Partners, LLC has acted as an advisor to Jensyn in connection with the proposed business combination and introduced Peck Electric Co. to Jensyn.
