(the “Company”), a newly incorporated blank check company, today announced the closing of its initial public offering of 10,120,000 units, including 1,320,000 units issued pursuant to the underwriters’ full exercise of the over-allotment option. The offering was priced at $10.00 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds of $101.2 million.

The Company is a blank check company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. While the Company may pursue an initial business combination target in any business or industry, it intends to focus on companies with operations in the vision sensing technologies (“VST”), including hardware chip solutions (such as chips, modules and systems), VST-related application software, artificial intelligence (“AI”) and other peripheral technologies that assist to integrate and/or supplement VST applications. There is no restriction in the geographic location of targets the Company can pursue, however, it expressly disclaims any intent to and will not consummate a business combination with a target business located in China or Hong Kong.
Each unit sold in the offering consists of one share of the Company’s Class A common stock and three-quarters of one warrant, each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. Only whole warrants are exercisable and will trade. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the shares of Class A common stock and warrants are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq under the symbols “VSAC” and “VSACW,” respectively.
EF Hutton, division of Benchmark Investments, LLC served as sole book-running manager on the offering.
