OVELAND, Colo. & PALO ALTO, Calif. – Lightning eMotors, a leading provider of commercial electric vehicles for fleets, and GigCapital3, Inc. (“GigCapital3”), today announced that they are completing their previously announced business combination. The business combination was approved by GigCapital3 stockholders on April 21, 2021. This closing happens less than a year after GigCapital Global closed the GigCapital3 SPAC IPO on May 18, 2020

The combined company has changed its name to Lightning eMotors, Inc. and its common stock and warrants will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the new symbols “ZEV” and “ZEV.WS”, respectively, on May 7, 2021. Each existing GigCapital3 unit will separate into its components consisting of one share of common stock under the new symbol “ZEV” and three-quarters of one warrant under the new symbol “ZEV.WS” and, as a result, the GigCapital3 units will no longer trade as a separate security.
