(the "Company"), a special purpose acquisition company formed for the purpose of entering into a combination with one or more businesses, today announced that it closed its initial public offering of 40,250,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit, which includes the exercise in full by the underwriter of its option to purchase an additional 5,250,000 units. Total gross proceeds from the offering are $402,500,000, before deducing underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses. 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. The units are listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol "PACXU." Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A ordinary shares and warrants are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbols "PACX" and "PACXW," respectively.
