NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Cartica Acquisition Corp (“Cartica” or the “Company”), a blank check company formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses, today announced the closing of its initial public offering of 23,000,000 units, at a price of $10.00 per unit. The number of units sold reflected the full exercise by the underwriter of its over-allotment option. Potential business combination partners may be in any industry or sector and incorporated in any jurisdiction, but are likely to have an operational or business focus in India, to serve the large and growing Indian market, and preferably with an ambition to grow and expand internationally.
The units are listed on the Nasdaq Global Market (“Nasdaq”) and trade under the ticker symbol “CITEU.” Each unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company and one-half of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Class A ordinary share of the Company 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 warrants are expected to trade on Nasdaq under the symbols “CITE” and “CITEW”, respectively.
J.P. Morgan Securities LLC acted as sole book running manager for the offering. A registration statement relating to the securities was declared effective by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on January 4, 2022.
