"Almost one year ago management made a commitment to the shareholders," declared Eric Swider, the Chief Executive Officer of Digital World.

Today we are humbled and grateful to be able to deliver on that commitment. We know it has been a long road for our shareholders and we are eternally grateful for your trust and patience." Swider continued, "I want to extend the sincerest of gratitude to TMTG for their absolute professionalism, confidence and trust they put in our organization to deliver this proxy.

I am excited to see what the future brings should the shareholders approve this merger."

We aim to protect Americans' voices and defend their freedom as tech oligarchs and corporate media enforcers struggle to impose their narratives."
