HONG KONG, March 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Magnum Opus Acquisition Limited (the "Company") today announced the pricing of its initial public offering of 20,000,000 units at a price of US$10.00 per unit. The units are expected to be listed for trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol "OPA.U" beginning March 23, 2021. Each unit consists of one of the Company's Class A ordinary shares and one-half of one redeemable warrant.

Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Company expects that its Class A ordinary shares and warrants will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbols "OPA" and "OPA WS," respectively.
The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. Although the Company's efforts to identify a prospective business combination opportunity will not be limited to a particular industry, it intends to search globally for a target with operations or prospects focusing on global consumer, technology or media sectors with disruptive growth potential through the use of technology that can benefit from operations in Asia. It intends to seek proprietary and unique targets that can benefit from its large addressable markets underpinned by strong consumer-driven shifts. It also aims to identify proven business models that can be tailored to the Asian market and benefit from accelerated growth.
