NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TLGY Acquisition Corporation (NASDAQ: TLGYU) (the “Company” or “TLGY”) announced today that commencing January 21, 2022 (the “Unit Separation Date”), holders of the units sold in the Company’s initial public offering of 23,000,000 units (the “Units”) may elect to separately trade the Company’s Class A ordinary shares (the “Class A Ordinary Shares”) and the Company’s detachable redeemable warrants (the “Detachable Redeemable Warrants”) included in the Units. The Units not separated will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “NASDAQ”) under the symbol “TLGYU,” and the Class A Ordinary Shares and the Detachable Redeemable Warrants that are separated will trade on the NASDAQ under the symbols “TLGY” and “TLGYW,” respectively. No fractional Detachable Redeemable Warrants will be issued upon separation of the Units and only whole Detachable Redeemable Warrants will trade. Holders of the Units will need to have their brokers contact Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent, in order to separate the Units into Class A Ordinary Shares and Detachable Redeemable Warrants.
Each Unit consists of one Class A Ordinary Share, one-half of one Detachable Redeemable Warrant and a contingent right to receive at least one-fourth of one redeemable warrant following the initial business combination redemption time (the “Distributable Redeemable Warrants”).
In the separation, holders of Units will receive the number of shares of Class A Ordinary Shares underlying their Units, with the right to receive any Distributable Redeemable Warrants remaining attached to such shares of Class A Ordinary Shares, and the number of Detachable Redeemable Warrants underlying such Units.
Any holder of Units whose ownership includes a fractional number of underlying Detachable Redeemable Warrants, will be issued a number of Detachable Redeemable Warrants that is rounded down to the nearest whole number. Accordingly, any owner of Units that does not own a multiple of two Units will lose some amount of fractional Detachable Redeemable Warrants upon separation.
Upon the Company’s consummation of an initial business combination, 5,750,000 Distributable Redeemable Warrants will be distributed on a pro-rata basis to holders of record of the Class A Ordinary Shares issued in the initial public offering (whether acquired in the initial public offering or afterward) and that the holders thereof have not elected to redeem. Following the separation of the Units, the Class A Ordinary Shares will continue to trade with the right to receive these additional Distributable Redeemable Warrants, and such right will not be separately tradable.
