Each Unit consists of one share of Class A common stock of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”), and one-fourth of one redeemable warrant of the Company (“Warrant”), with each whole Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock for $11.50 per share.

On January 20, 2021, simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale (the “Private Placement”) of an aggregate of 6,933,333 warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to Hennessy Capital Partners V LLC at a purchase price of $1.50 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $10,400,000.


A total of $345,000,000 of the proceeds from the IPO (which amount includes $12,075,000 of the deferred underwriting commissions) and the sale of the Private Placement Warrants, was placed in a U.S.-based trust account at J.P.
