Patria Latin American Opportunity Acquisition Corp. Announces Closing of $230 Million Initial Public Offering and Exercise of Full Over-Allotment Option
Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands – March 14, 2022 – Patria Latin American Opportunity Acquisition Corp. (“Patria” or the “Company”) announced the closing today of its initial public offering of 23,000,000 units at $10.00 per unit, including the exercise in full by the underwriters to purchase an additional 3,000,000 units to cover over-allotments. The units began trading on the Nasdaq Global Market (“Nasdaq”) under the ticker symbol “PLAOU” on March 10, 2022. Each unit consists of one Class A ordinary share and one-half of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Class A ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share. Only whole warrants are exercisable. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A ordinary shares and redeemable warrants are expected to be listed on Nasdaq under the symbols “PLAO” and “PLAOW,” respectively.
The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. While the Company may pursue an initial business combination target in any industry or sector, geography, or stage, the Company intends to focus its search in Latin America and in sectors where Patria has developed investment expertise (including but not limited to healthcare, food and beverage, logistics, agribusiness, education, and financial services). The Company’s sponsor is associated with the Brazilian asset management firm Patria Investimentos Ltda.
J.P. Morgan Securities LLC and Citigroup Global Markets Inc. are acting as global coordinators and representatives of the offering’s underwriters.
The offering is being made only by means of a final prospectus. When available, copies of the final prospectus may be obtained from J.P.
