Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”), and one-third of one redeemable warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock for $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $115,000,000.
Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale of 405,000 units (the “Private Placement Units”) to HighCape Capital Acquisition LLC (the “Sponsor”) at a purchase price of $10.00 per Private Placement Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $4,050,000.
A total of $115,000,000, comprised of $112,700,000 of the proceeds from the IPO (which amount includes $4,025,000 of the underwriter’s deferred discount) and $2,300,000 of the proceeds of the sale of the Private Placement Units, was placed in a U.S.-based trust account at J.P.
