The units are expected to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”) and trade under the ticker symbol “BGSX.U” beginning on March 17, 2021.

Cowen and Company LLC and Allen & Company LLC are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering. The Company has granted the underwriters a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 3,000,000 units at the initial public offering price to cover over-allotments, if any.
