HumanCo Acquisition Corp. Announces Pricing of Upsized $250 Million Initial Public Offering
AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HumanCo Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) today announced the pricing of its upsized initial public offering of 25,000,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units are expected to be listed for trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) under the ticker symbol “HMCOU” beginning December 9, 2020. Each unit consists of one share of the Company’s Class A common stock and one-half of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. The Company is led by Jason H. Karp, its Executive Co-Chairman, Rohan Oza, its Co-Chairman, Ross Berman, its Chief Executive Officer, Brett Thomas, its President, and Amy Zipper, its Chief Operating Officer.
The Company has also entered into a unit purchase agreement with CAVU Venture Partners III, LP (“CAVU”) for the purchase of 2,500,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit, which purchase will take place in a private placement to close substantially concurrently with the closing of the Company’s initial public offering. The units to be sold to CAVU are identical to the units sold in the offering, except as described in this prospectus.
Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Company expects that its Class A common stock and warrants will be listed on Nasdaq under the symbols “HMCO” and “HMCOW,” respectively.
The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. Although the Company’s efforts to identify a prospective business combination opportunity will not be limited to a particular industry, it intends to focus on the industries that complement its management team’s background and to capitalize on their demonstrated ability to identify and acquire businesses focusing on Health and Wellness and related industries in the United States.
Citigroup is acting as sole book-running manager. The Company has granted the underwriter a 45-day option to purchase up to 3,750,000 additional units at the initial public offering price to cover over-allotments, if any.
The public offering is being made only by means of a prospectus. When available, copies of the prospectus relating to the offering may be obtained from Citigroup, c/o Broadridge Financial Solutions, 1155 Long Island Avenue, Edgewood, NY 11717, or by telephone at (800) 831-9146.
