Corner Growth Acquisition Corp. (the "Company"), a special purpose acquisition company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses, today announced the closing of its upsized initial public offering of 40,000,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit, including an additional 5,000,000 units sold pursuant to the partial exercise of the underwriter’s over-allotment option. Total gross proceeds from the offering were $400 million before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses payable by the Company.
The units began trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market (the "Nasdaq") under the ticker symbol "COOLU" on December 17, 2020. Each unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company and one-third of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Class A ordinary share of the Company at a price of $11.50 per share. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A ordinary shares and warrants are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq under the symbols "COOL" and "COOLW," respectively.
Led by Co-Chairman John Cadeddu, Co-Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Marvin Tien and a team of venture capital investors, the Company expects to focus on the technology industry in the United States and other developed countries.
