On April 30, 2021, ESM Acquisition Corporation (the “Company”) announced that the holders of the Company’s units sold in the Company’s initial public offering (the “Units”) may elect to separately trade the Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A ordinary shares”), and redeemable warrants included in the Units commencing on April 30, 2021. Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (an “Ordinary Share”), and one-third of one redeemable warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share of the Company. Any Units not separated will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) under the symbol “ESM.U.” Any underlying Class A ordinary shares and redeemable warrants that are separated will trade on the NYSE under the symbols “ESM” and “ESM WS,” respectively. No fractional warrants will be issued upon separation of the Units and only whole warrants will trade. Holders of Units will need to have their brokers contact Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company, the Company’s transfer agent, in order to separate such holders’ Units into Class A ordinary shares and redeemable warrants.
A copy of the press release issued by the Company announcing the separate trading of the securities underlying the Units is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
