NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PWP Forward Acquisition Corp. I (“PFAC” or the “Company”), a blank check company led by women and sponsored by Perella Weinberg Partners and its partners and employees, today announced the pricing of its initial public offering of 20,000,000 units at a price of $10 per unit. The units will be listed for trading on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Nasdaq”) under the ticker symbol “FRWAU” beginning March 10, 2021.
Each unit consists of one share of the Company’s Class A common stock and one-fifth 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. Only whole warrants are exercisable. 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 “FRW” and “FRWAW,” respectively. The offering is expected to close on March 12, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.
PFAC was formed as a Delaware corporation for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. Although the Company’s efforts to identify a prospective business combination opportunity will not be limited to a particular industry, it intends to focus on enhancing access to public financing for companies that are founded by, led by or enrich the lives of women.
Citigroup is acting as the book-running manager, and Siebert Williams Shank & Co., Telsey Advisory Group and Tigress Financial Partners are acting as co-managers for the offering. The Company has granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 3,000,000 units at the initial public offering price to cover over-allotments, if any.
The offering is being made only by means of a prospectus. When available, copies of the prospectus may be obtained from Citigroup Global Markets Inc., c/o Broadridge Financial Solutions, 1155 Long Island Avenue, Edgewood, NY 11717 or by telephone at 1-800-831-9146.
