Upon closing, and assuming no redemptions of any public shares of Quantum FinTech, the transaction will provide TradeStation with approximately $326 million of cash prior to payment of expenses, consisting of the contribution of approximately $201 million of cash distributed from Quantum FinTech’s trust account and $125 million of additional capital raised through a fully-committed private placement of common stock by Quantum FinTech (“PIPE”). The PIPE includes, as co-anchor investments, $50 million from TradeStation’s sole shareholder, Monex Group, Inc. (“Monex”), and $50 million from Galaxy Digital LP, an affiliate of Galaxy Digital Holdings Ltd., one of the world’s leading technology-driven financial services and investment management firms. Monex is not selling any of its TradeStation stock in the transaction and, assuming no redemptions of Quantum FinTech public shares, will own approximately 81% of TradeStation at closing. Net proceeds from the transaction are intended to be used to help fund TradeStation’s plans to accelerate account and revenue growth through substantially increased brand-awareness and performance-based marketing spend, as well as increased product development and IT headcount for completion of certain new product feature initiatives, and to add liquidity to support an anticipated larger customer base.
