Colbeck Capital Management’s Education SPAC Edify Acquisition Corp. Announces Closing of Upsized $276 Million Initial Public Offering of Securities and Full Exercise of Overallotment Option

Edify Acquisition Corporation has closed an upsized initial public offering (IPO), pricing its 27,600,000 shares at $10 per unit, which includes 3,600,000 units issued pursuant to the underwriters’ exercise of their over-allotment option. Edify is a special-purpose acquisition company focused on opportunities in education, educational technology, human capital development, and workforce development.

Each unit consists of one share of Edify Acquisition Corporation’s Class A common stock and half of one redeemable warrant, with each whole warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one share of the Company’s Class A common stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share. Shares were offered on the NASDAQ beginning January 25, 2021, under the ticker symbol EACPU.
