PROOF Acquisition Corp I Announces the Separate Trading of Its Class A Common Shares and Warrants
RESTON, Va., January 18, 2022 (Newswire.com) - PROOF Acquisition Corp I ("PAC I") announced today that, commencing Jan. 21, 2022, holders of the units sold in the PAC I's initial public offering may elect to separately trade the Class A common stock and warrants included in the units. Each unit consists of one share of Class A common stock and one-half of one redeemable warrant.
No fractional warrants will be issued upon separation of the units and only whole warrants will trade. The Class A common stock and warrants that are separated will trade on The New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") under the symbols "PACI" and "PACI.WS," respectively. Those units not separated will continue to trade on the NYSE under the symbol "PACI.U." Holders of units will need to have their brokers contact Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, PAC I's transfer agent, to separate the units into Class A common stock and warrants.
The units were initially offered by PAC I in an underwritten offering. BofA Securities served as the sole book-running manager for the offering.
A registration statement relating to the securities was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") on Nov. 30, 2021. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
