Duddell Street Acquisition Corp. (the "Company") announced the closing today of its initial public offering of 17,500,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units began trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market (the "Nasdaq") under the ticker symbol "DSACU" on October 29, 2020.

After the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A ordinary shares and the warrants are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq under the symbols "DSAC" and "DSACW," respectively.
The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses.
