NEW YORK, March 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Jensyn Acquisition Corporation (the "Company"), an information technology consulting-focused special purpose entity formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses, today announced the closing of its initial public offering of 3,900,000 units. The offering was priced at $10.00 per unit, resulting in gross proceeds of $39,000,000, before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses payable by the Company.
The Company's units began trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker symbol "JSYNU" on March 3, 2016. Each unit consists of one share of the Company's common stock, one warrant and one right to receive one-tenth (1/10) of one share of Company's common stock automatically on the consummation of an initial business combination.

Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the common stock, warrants and rights are expected to be listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker symbols "JSYN" and "JSYNW" and "JSYNR," respectively.
