Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the shares of Class A common stock and warrants are expected to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbols “AAQC” and “AAQC WS,” respectively. No fractional warrants will be issued upon separation of the units and only whole warrants will trade.

The offering is expected to close on March 22, 2021, subject to customary closing conditions.
