Black Spade Acquisition Co Announces Closing of $150 Million Initial Public Offering

HONG KONG, July 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Black Spade Acquisition Co (the "Company") today announced the closing of its initial public offering of 15,000,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units began trading on the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") under the ticker symbol "BSAQU" beginning July 16, 2021. Each unit consists of one of the Company's Class A ordinary shares 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. 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 NYSE under the symbols "BSAQ" and "BSAQWS," 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 or assets. Although the Company may pursue an initial business combination opportunity in any industry or any region, it is focused on identifying a business combination target that can benefit from the extensive collective network, knowledge and experience of the Company's founder and management team that is related to or in the entertainment industry, with a focus on enabling technology, lifestyle brands, products, or services and entertainment media. While the Company intends to pursue opportunities globally, it will focus on opportunities with existing or future growth potential underpinned by the transformative consumption forces in Asia, an area in which its founder and management team can contribute significantly with their extensive network, knowledge and experience.
