Let’s take in all that news below!

  • The agreement will have Triller and SeaChange International enacting a reverse merger.

  • That means that once the merger is complete, the new company will operate as TrillerVerz.

  • To go along with that, the ticker for the company’s stock will switch from SEAC to ILLR.

  • This has the two companies expecting a value of $5 billion for the combined company.

  • TrillerVerz is looking to create a business focused on the Web3.0 movement.

  • This has it looking to become the voice of users in the 18- to the 34-year-old age group.

  • That would have it challenging TikTok as a social media platform for creators and influencers.

  • When the deal closes, the new company will be led by TrillerVerz CEO Mahi de Silva.

  • Peter Aquino, current president and CEO of SeaChange International, will stick around as part of the new company’s team.

  • The Boards of Directors at both companies have given their support to the deal.

  • This has the two companies expecting the reverse merger to close sometime in the first quarter of 2022.

  • Rumors of a deal between the two companies kicked off last week.

  • SEAC stock is experiencing heavy trading on today’s news.

  • That has some 137 million shares of the stock changing hands.

  • For the record, its daily average trading volume is closer to 7 million shares.

SEAC stock is up 48.5% as of Wednesday morning.
