In late June DeepGreen Metals shareholders approved the merger of DeepGreen and Sustainable Opportunities Acquisition Corporation (SOAC). The British Columbia Supreme Court has also approved the plan of arrangement between DeepGreen and SOAC. The merger needs to be approved by SOAC’s shareholders and needs to satisfy other customary closing conditions.
