MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Riverview Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: RVACU) (the “Company”), a blank check company whose business purpose is to effect a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses, announced today the closing of its previously announced initial public offering of 25,000,000 units. The units were sold at a price of $10.00 per unit. The Company’s units began trading on August 6, 2021 on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “RVACU”. Each unit consists of one share of Class A common stock and one-half of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant is exercisable to purchase one share of Class A common stock of the Company at a price of $11.50 per share. Only whole warrants are exercisable and will trade. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A common stock and warrants are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker symbols “RVAC” and “RVACW,” respectively.
While the Company may pursue an initial business combination target in any industry or geographic region, the Company intends to focus on combining with consumer-focused enterprises, including e-commerce, on the energy services and renewables sector and on the insurance and financial services sector. The Company’s efforts will be focused on finding companies which we believe have significant growth prospects. The Company is led by R. Brad Martin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer; Charles K. Slatery, President and Chief Investment Officer; and William V. Thompson III, Treasurer, Secretary and Chief Financial Officer.
