Item 8.01 Other Events.
As previously reported, on February 2, 2021, Mason Industrial Technology, Inc. (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 50,000,000 units (the “Units”), including the issuance of 5,000,000 Units as a result of the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option. Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value of $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”), and one-third of one redeemable warrant of the Company (a “Warrant”), with each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $500,000,000.
On March 18, 2021, the Company issued a press release, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, announcing that the holders of the Units may elect to separately trade shares of the Class A Common Stock and Warrants comprising the Units commencing on March 22, 2021. Those Units not separated will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “MIT.U,” and the Class A Common Stock and Warrants that are separated will trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbols “MIT” and “MIT.W,” respectively. Holders of Units will need to have their brokers contact Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent, in order to separate Units into shares of Class A Common Stock and Warrants.
