Aldel Financial Inc. (the "Company"), a newly organized blank check company formed as a Delaware corporation and led by Chairman and CEO Robert Kauffman (former co-founder of Fortress Investment Group, LLC), today announced the closing of its initial public offering of 11,500,000 units at an offering price of $10.00 per unit. This includes the exercise in full by the underwriters of their over-allotment option to purchase up to an additional 1,500,000 units. Each unit consists of one share of common stock and one-half of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of common stock at $11.50 per share. The units are listed on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") and trade under the ticker symbol "ADF.U". Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the common stock and the warrants are expected to be traded on the NYSE under the symbols "ADF" and "ADF WS," respectively.
The Company intends to use the net proceeds from the offering, and the simultaneous private placements of units and warrants, to consummate the Company’s initial business combination.
ThinkEquity, a division of Fordham Financial Management, Inc., acted as sole book-running manager for the offering.
The offering was made only by means of a prospectus.
