Houston, TX, Dec. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Delwinds Insurance Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) announced today that it closed its initial public offering of 20,125,000 units (including 2,625,000 units sold upon exercise of the underwriters’ over-allotment option in full) at $10.00 per unit. The units are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“the NYSE”) and trade under the ticker symbol “DWIN.U.” Each unit consists of one share of the Company’s Class A common stock and one-half of one redeemable warrant.
