Athena Consumer Acquisition Corp. to Transfer Listing To NYSE American
New York, NY, Feb. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Athena Consumer Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: ACAQ.U, ACAQ, ACAQ WS) (“Athena”), announced today that it will transfer its listing from the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) to the NYSE American LLC (the “NYSE American”). Athena received written confirmation that it has been cleared to file an initial listing application with the NYSE American on February 6, 2023, and received the final approval for listing from the staff of NYSE American on February 9, 2023.
In connection with the transfer, Athena will voluntarily delist from the New York Stock Exchange, and expects to begin trading on the NYSE American on or about February 14, 2023. Athena’s decision to transfer to the NYSE American was made to permit the continued listing of its securities following recent redemptions of Athena’s Class A common stock in connection with the vote to extend the deadline by which Athena must complete its initial business combination. Following the transfer to the NYSE American, Athena intends to continue to file the same types of periodic reports and other information it currently files with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
