Each Unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share (“Class A ordinary shares”), and one-half of one redeemable warrant of the Company (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”), with each Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one Class A ordinary share for $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. The Units were sold at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $414,000,000.


Simultaneously with the closing of the IPO, the Company completed the private sale of 10,280,000 private placement warrants (the “Private Placement Warrants”) to HH&L Investment Co. (the “Sponsor”) at a purchase price of $1.00 per Private Placement Warrant, generating gross proceeds to the Company of $10,280,000.


A total of $414,000,000, comprised of $405,720,000 of the proceeds from the IPO (which amount includes $14,490,000 of the underwriters’ deferred discount) and $8,280,000 of the proceeds of the sale of the Private Placement Warrants to the Sponsor, was placed in a U.S.-based trust account at J.P.
