On June 17, 2021, TradeUP Global Corporation (the “Company”) announced that the holders of the Company’s units (the “Units”) may elect to separately trade the Class A ordinary shares, par value $0.0001 per share (the “Class A ordinary shares”), and warrants included in the Units commencing on June 21, 2021 (which date is the next succeeding business day following June 19, 2021, the 52nd day following April 28, 2021, the date of the Company’s prospectus in connection with its initial public offering). Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share and one-half of one redeemable warrant to purchase one Class A ordinary share.

Any underlying Class A ordinary shares and warrants that are separated will trade on the Nasdaq under the symbols “TUGC” and “TUGCW,” 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 the Company’s transfer agent, VStock Transfer, LLC, in order to separate the holders’ Units into Class A ordinary shares and warrants.
