Cactus Acquisition Corp. 1 Limited Announces Closing of Upsized $126.5 Million Initial Public Offering, Including Fully-Exercised Over-Allotment Option
NEW YORK, Nov. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cactus Acquisition Corp. 1 Limited (the “Company”) announced today the closing of its upsized initial public offering of 12,650,000 units at a public offering price of $10.00 per unit, with each unit consisting of one Class A ordinary share of the Company and one-half of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder thereof to purchase one Class A ordinary share at $11.50 per share. That offering amount reflects both an increase of the overall offering size, as well as the full exercise by the underwriters of their over-allotment option, each of which was previously announced by the Company. As a result, the aggregate offering size, including full exercise of the over-allotment option, is $126,500,000.
The units have commenced trading on the Nasdaq Global Market (“Nasdaq”) under the symbol “CCTSU”. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A ordinary shares and redeemable warrants are expected to be listed on Nasdaq under the symbols “CCTS” and “CCTSW,” respectively.
The Company is a blank check company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, amalgamation, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. The Company intends to focus its search on Israel-related technology-based healthcare companies. The Company is led by Nachum (Homi) Shamir, Chairman of the Board of the Company, Ofer Gonen, CEO of the Company, and Stephen T. Wills, CFO of the Company.
