FG Merger Corp. Announces Closing of Fully-Exercised Over-Allotment Option in Connection with Its Initial Public Offering
ITASCA, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- FG Merger Corp. (the “Company”), a newly organized blank check company formed as a Delaware corporation, announced today that the underwriters in its initial public offering (“IPO”), pursuant to the terms of the underwriting agreement, fully exercised their over-allotment option and, on March 3, 2022, purchased 1,050,000 units, generating additional gross proceeds of $10,500,000. Each unit consists of one share of common stock and three-quarters of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of common stock at $11.50 per share. The units are listed on the Nasdaq Global Market (“NASDAQ”) and trade under the ticker symbol “FGMCU”. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the common stock and the warrants are expected to be traded on NASDAQ under the symbols “FGMC” and “FGMCW,” respectively.
The total aggregate issuance by the Company of 8,050,000 units in the IPO, including the over-allotment option exercise, at a price of $10.00 per unit resulted in total gross proceeds of $80,500,000.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, and the simultaneous private placements of units and warrants, to consummate the Company’s initial business combination.
ThinkEquity acted as sole book-running manager for the offering.
The offering was made only by means of a prospectus.
