Following the closing, the ordinary shares of the combined company are expected to begin trading on the NASDAQ under the ticker symbols “AAGR” and “AAGRW”, respectively. Upon listing, African Agriculture will be the first pure-play U.S.-listed agriculture company operating in Africa.

The parties initially announced their $450 million deal on November 3. New York-based African Agriculture is developing alfalfa farms at two sites in Senegal and Niger.

African Agriculture will be led by CEO Alan Kessler, who brings over 25 years of experience as an operator, advisor, and investor in commodities and emerging markets.
