NEW YORK, April 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Medicus Sciences Acquisition Corp. (the "Company," or "MSAC") announced that, commencing April 5, 2021 (the "Unit Separation Date"), the units sold in the Company's initial public offering (the "Units") will no longer trade, and that the Company's Class A ordinary shares (the "Class A Ordinary Shares") and the Company's redeemable warrants (the "Redeemable Warrants") which together comprise the Units will commence trading separately. The Class A Ordinary Shares and the Redeemable Warrants will be listed on the Nasdaq Capital Market and trade under the ticker symbols, "MSAC" and "MSACW," respectively. This is a mandatory and automatic separation, and no action is required by the holders of the Units.
Each of the 92,000,000 Units sold in MSAC's initial public offering consists of one Class A Ordinary Share, one-ninth of a Redeemable Warrant, and a contingent right to receive a distribution of additional warrants (the "Distributable Medicus Redeemable Warrants").
In the separation, Unit owners will receive the number of Class A Ordinary Shares underlying their Units, with the right to receive any Distributable Medicus Redeemable Warrants remaining attached to such Class A Ordinary Shares, and the number of Redeemable Warrants underlying such Units; however, no fractional warrants will be issued.
Any holder of Units whose ownership includes a fractional number of underlying Redeemable Warrants, will be issued a number of Redeemable Warrants that is rounded down to the nearest whole number. Accordingly, any owner of Units that does not own a multiple of nine Units will lose some amount of fractional Redeemable Warrants upon separation.
Purchases of Units that are made after market close on April 1, 2021, may not settle prior to the Unit Separation Date and, accordingly, the number of Redeemable Warrants issued to such purchasers may not reflect the Redeemable Warrants underlying such recently purchased Units.
