MEXICO CITY, Dec. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DD3 Acquisition Corp. II (the "Company"), today announced the pricing of its initial public offering of 11,000,000 units upsized from 10,000,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market and trade under the ticker symbol "DDMXU" beginning December 8, 2020. Each unit consists of one share of the Company's Class A common stock and one-half of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Company expects that its Class A common stock and warrants will be listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbols "DDMX" and "DDMXW," respectively.
The Company has also entered into forward purchase agreements for the purchase of an aggregate of up to 5,000,000 shares of Class A common stock with certain funds affiliated with Baron Capital Group, Inc. and MG Partners Multi-Strategy Fund LP. Any such purchases will take place in a private placement that will close substantially concurrently with the closing of the Company's initial business combination.
The Company was formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, recapitalization, reorganization or other similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities. The Company's efforts to identify a prospective target business will not be limited to a particular industry or geographic region, although it intends to focus on businesses in Mexico and Hispanic businesses in the United States.
EarlyBirdCapital, Inc. is acting as sole book-running manager of the offering. The Company has granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 1,650,000 units at the initial public offering price to cover over-allotments, if any.
