SHUAA Partners Acquisition Corp I (the “Company”) announced today that on March 1, 2021 it priced its initial public offering of 10,000,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units are expected to be listed on the NASDAQ Global Market (“Nasdaq”) and trade under the ticker symbol “SHUAU” beginning today. 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 will be exercisable. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A ordinary shares and redeemable warrants are expected to trade on Nasdaq under the symbols “SHUA” and “SHUAW,” respectively.
The Company is a blank check company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, amalgamation, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. The Company intends to search for a target within the technology or tech-enabled financial services (“fintech”) sectors, across the high growth markets of the Middle East, North Africa, and Turkey region (collectively, “MENAT”). The search for a target will be tech-focused and sector-agnostic, allowing the Company to fundamentally leverage new and growing trends within the tech sector and access potential targets that are targeting key areas for change within traditional business sectors in the MENAT region.
