We are pleased to announce the successful completion of the business combination between Australian Oilseeds Holdings Limited and EDOC Acquisition Corp., a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company. This strategic transaction, approved by EDOC shareholders on March 5, 2024, marks a significant milestone in the evolution of Australian Oilseeds, positioning it as the largest cold pressing oil plant in Australia and the APAC region.

Under the terms of the merger, Australian Oilseeds Holdings Limited, operating as “Australian Oilseeds”, is now trading on Nasdaq under the ticker symbol “COOT”, effective March 22, 2024. The company’s warrants will also commence trading under the symbol “COOTW”. Gary Seaton, CEO of Australian Oilseeds, along with the existing management team, will continue to lead the company through its next phase of growth.

“We are thrilled to list Australian Oilseeds on the Nasdaq, particularly at this moment of burgeoning consumer demand for organic food ingredients globally,” commented Mr. Seaton. “With global demand for healthier, natural, and chemical-free food products, coupled with growing food shortages, we plan to capitalize on this increased global demand for sustainable premium cold-pressed and non-GMO products.”

Australian Oilseeds has demonstrated its commitment to sustainability and quality over the past two decades, becoming the largest cold pressing oil plant in the APAC region. The company’s expansion efforts include the construction of a multi-seed crushing plant in Queensland, further solidifying its position as a key player in the industry.

“This is an incredible milestone for the entire Australian Oilseeds team,” states Mr. Seaton. “Investors now have the opportunity to join us in our mission to become a global leader in providing chemical-free non-GMO feed ingredients into the food supply chain.”

“We are proud to have facilitated the successful business combination between Australian Oilseeds and EDOC, marking a significant step forward for both companies. This transaction underscores our commitment to driving growth and creating value for our clients in the ever-evolving landscape of mergers and acquisitions.” – Ian Hanna, Managing Director of ARC Group
