Item 8.01 Other Events.
On April 21, 2021, TCW Special Purpose Acquisition Corp. (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 shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A Common Stock”), and redeemable warrants included in the Units commencing on April 22, 2021. Each Unit consists of one share of Class A Common Stock and one-third of one redeemable warrant to purchase one share of Class A Common Stock. Any Units not separated will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) under the symbol “TSPQ.U.” Any underlying shares of Class A Common Stock and redeemable warrants that are separated will trade on NYSE under the symbols “TSPQ” and “TSPQ 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 shares of Class A Common Stock 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.
This report includes certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including the trading on NYSE of the shares and warrants underlying the units. These forward-looking statements involve many risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such statements, including, without limitation, general market conditions. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this report, and the Company expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to disseminate any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statement contained herein to reflect any change in the expectations of the Company with regard thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based. Forward-looking statements are subject to numerous conditions, many of which are beyond the control of the Company, including those set forth in the Risk Factors section of the prospectus related to the Company’s initial public offering.
