Athena Consumer Acquisition Corp. Announces Closing of $230 Million Initial Public Offering Including Full Exercise of the Over-Allotment Option
NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Athena Consumer Acquisition Corp. ("Athena Consumer" or the "Company"), a newly incorporated blank check company, today announced the closing of its initial public offering of 23,000,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit, including 3,000,000 units pursuant to the full exercise of the underwriters' overallotment option. The offering was priced at $10.00 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds of $230,000,000. The units began trading on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") and trade under the ticker symbol "ACAQ.U " on October 20, 2021.
Athena Consumer is the second all-women Athena SPAC founded by Isabelle Freidheim following Athena Technology Acquisition Corp., which was the first all-women SPAC to announce a business combination.
The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. While the Company may pursue an initial business combination target in any industry, it currently intends to concentrate its search for a target business operating in the technology and consumer sectors.
Each unit consists of one share of Class A common stock and one-half of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. Only whole warrants are exercisable. Once the securities comprising the units begin trading separately, the Company expects that the shares of Class A common stock and redeemable warrants will be listed on the NYSE under the symbols "ACAQ" and "ACAQ WS," respectively.
Citigroup Global Markets Inc. ("Citigroup") served as sole bookrunner and representative of the underwriters, and Ladenburg Thalmann & Co. Inc. acted as co-manager of the offering.
The offering was made only by means of a prospectus, copies of which may be obtained by contacting Citigroup, Attention Broadridge Financial Solutions, 1155 Long Island Avenue, Edgewood, NY, 11717, or by phone at 800-831-9146.
