NEW YORK, Aug. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- International Media Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: IMAQU) (the "Company" or "IMAC") today announced the underwriters of its previously announced public offering of units have exercised their over-allotment option resulting in the issuance of an additional 3,000,000 units.
The units began trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market ("Nasdaq") under the ticker symbol "IMAQU" on July 29, 2021.
