illi News/10248431

WINNETKA, Ill. ~ Healthwell Acquisition Corp. I ("Healthwell") (Nasdaq: HWEL) announced today that its previously announced special meeting of stockholders, scheduled for December 4, 2023, has been cancelled. The board of directors of Healthwell (the "Board") has determined to cease all operations except for the purpose of winding up as soon as practicable and redeem the shares of its Class A common stock (the "Public Shares") that were included in the units issued in Healthwell's initial public offering (the "IPO").

The redemption will be at a per-share price, payable in cash, equal to the aggregate amount then on deposit in the trust account established in connection with the IPO (the "Trust Account") including interest earned on the funds held in the Trust Account and not previously released to Healthwell to pay its taxes (less up to $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses), divided by the number of outstanding Public Shares. This redemption will completely extinguish public stockholders' rights as stockholders (including the right to receive further liquidating distributions, if any), subject to applicable law.

Following this redemption, Healthwell intends to liquidate the funds held in the Trust Account and dissolve itself. The proceeds thereof, less $100,000 of interest to pay dissolution expenses and net of taxes payable, will be held in a trust operating account while awaiting disbursement to holders of Public Shares. Beneficial owners of Public Shares held in "street name" will not need to take any action in order to receive their pro rata portion of these proceeds. The Redemption Amount is expected to be paid out within ten business days after instruction is given for Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company ("Continental"), Healthwell's trustee, to commence with this process.

Healthwell Acquisition Corp. I Sponsor LLC has agreed to waive its redemption rights with respect to shares of Healthwell's Class B common stock issued prior to the IPO, including shares of Healthwell's Class A common stock issued upon conversion of such Class B common stock. All other costs and expenses associated with implementing this dissolution will be funded from proceeds held outside of the Trust Account.
