NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Orion Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”), a blank check company formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses, today announced that it closed its upsized initial public offering of 41,400,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit, which includes the exercise in full by the underwriter of its over-allotment option to purchase an additional 5,400,000 units.
Total gross proceeds from the offering were $414,000,000, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses. Each unit consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company and one-quarter of one warrant.

The units are listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”) under the symbol “OHPAU”. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the shares of Class A common stock and warrants are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq under the symbols “OHPA” and “OHPAW,” respectively.
While Orion Acquisition Corp. may pursue an initial business combination target in any business or industry, the Company intends to target companies in the healthcare industry in the U.S. or other developed countries.
