Item 8.01. Other Events.


On February 11, 2021, Crown PropTech Acquisitions (the “Company”) consummated its initial public offering (“IPO”) of 27,600,000 units (the “Units”), which included the exercise of the underwriters’ option to purchase an additional 3,600,000 Units at the initial public offering price to cover over-allotments. Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A Ordinary Shares”), and one-third of one redeemable warrant of the Company (“Warrant”), each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one Class A Ordinary Share for $11.50 per share. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $276,000,000.


Substantially concurrently with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale of 5,013,333 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to Crown PropTech Sponsor, LLC and certain funds and accounts managed by subsidiaries of BlackRock, Inc. at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $7,520,000.


A total of $276,000,000, comprised of $270,480,000 of the net proceeds from the IPO, including $9,660,000 of the underwriters’ deferred discount, and $5,520,000 of the proceeds of the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, was placed in a U.S.-based trust account at J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., maintained by Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, acting as trustee. An audited balance sheet as of February 11, 2021 reflecting receipt of the proceeds upon consummation of the IPO and the Private Placement has been issued by the Company and is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
