PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–GigCapital2, Inc. (NYSE: GIX.U) (www.GigCapital2.com)
(the “Company”) today announced that the underwriters, pursuant to the
terms of the underwriting agreement, exercised in full their previously
announced option to purchase 2,250,000 newly issued units to cover
over-allotments, and on June 13, 2019, purchased these additional units,
generating additional gross proceeds of $22,500,000. Following the
exercise of the over-allotment option, the total aggregate issuance by
the Company of 17,250,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit resulted
in total gross proceeds of $172,500,000.

Each unit consists of one share of common stock, one right and one
warrant to purchase one share of common stock at a price of $11.50 per
share. Each right entitles the holder thereof to receive one-twentieth
(1/20) of one share of common stock upon the consummation of the
Company’s initial business combination. The units are listed on the New
York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) under the symbol “GIX.U”. Once the
securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the shares,
rights and warrants are expected to be traded on the NYSE under the
symbols “GIX”, “GIX RT”, and “GIX WS”, respectively.

The Company is a Private-to-Public Equity (PPE)™ company, also known as
a blank check company or special purpose acquisition company (SPAC). It
was sponsored by GigAcquisitions2, LLC, which was founded by
