Switchback Energy (NYSE:SBE) announced that its shareholders approved its combination with electric vehicle (EV) charging network ChargePoint at a special meeting earlier today.

The deal is now expected to close tomorrow, February 26. The combined entity’s shares and warrants are set to begin trading on the NYSE under the ticker symbols “CHPT” and “CHPT WS,” respectively, beginning March 1.

Switchback Energy did not detail redemption figures in its initial press release, but they are bound to have been limited given the company opened trading this morning ahead of the vote at $34.34.

The deal has been among the most consistently appreciated EV SPAC combinations and has traded above $29 since late November.
