VivoPower (NASDAQ:VVPR) stock is rocketing higher on Tuesday after the company announced plans for its Tembo subsidiary to go public via a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) merger.

That merger will see Tembo combine with SPAC Cactus Acquisition Corp. 1 (NASDAQ:CCTS). This combination will see Cactus Acquisition Corp. 1 issue 83.8 million shares in exchange for Tembo shares. This will be priced at $10 per CCTS share.

To go along with this, VivoPower will issue a dividend to shareholders once the SPAC merger closes. That will see it distribute 16.76 million Tembo shares to investors. That will represent 20% of the 83.8 million Tembo shares and will grant five Tembo shares for each share of VVPR stock.

Investors in VVPR stock will be eligible for the Tembo dividend stock payment if they are on record as of April 30, 2024. The company expects the business combination to close in May 2024 with the later transaction set for August 2024.
