Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share and one-fifth of one redeemable warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share. Any Units not separated will continue to trade on the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) under the symbol “ACQRU.” Any underlying Class A ordinary shares and warrants that are separated will trade on Nasdaq under the symbols “ACQR” and “ACQRW,” respectively.
