FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Metals Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) today announced that the underwriters of its previously announced initial public offering of 25,000,000 units, which closed on August 2, 2021, have partially exercised their option to purchase additional units, resulting in the issuance of an additional 1,514,780 units at a public offering price of $10.00 per unit. After giving effect to the partial exercise and close of the option, an aggregate of 26,514,780 units have been issued in the initial public offering and an aggregate of $265,147,800 has been deposited into the Company’s trust account. The underwriters have until September 10, 2021 to exercise the remainder of their option to purchase additional units.
Each unit consists of one share of the Company’s Class A ordinary shares and one-third of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of the Class A ordinary shares at a price of $11.50 per share. The units are listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “MTAL U.” Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Company expects that its Class A ordinary shares and warrants will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbols ‘‘MTAL’’ and ‘‘MTAL WS,’’ respectively.
The Company was formed 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 businesses in the metals and mining sector, including both upstream and downstream businesses, but excluding coal.
Citigroup is acting as sole book-running manager.
