NEW YORK, Oct. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Home Plate Acquisition Corporation (the “Company”) today announced the closing of its initial public offering of 20,000,000 units on October 4, 2021. The offering was priced at $10.00 per unit, generating total gross proceeds of $200,000,000.
The units are listed on the Nasdaq Global Market (the “Nasdaq”) and trade under the ticker symbol “HPLTU.” Each unit consists of one share of the Company’s 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. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Company expects that its Class A common stock and warrants will be listed on the Nasdaq under the symbols “HPLT” and “HPLTW,” respectively.
The Company was formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. While the Company may pursue a merger opportunity in any industry or sector, it intends to capitalize on the ability of its management team and sponsor to identify, acquire and manage a business in the FinTech and Embedded Finance sectors, including payments, digital assets, consumer finance, and other related areas.
