VANCOUVER, BC, April 13, 2021 /CNW/ - Anacott Acquisition Corporation (the "Company" or "Anacott") is pleased to announce that on April 13, 2021, it successfully completed its initial public offering ("IPO") to raise gross proceeds of $200,000 pursuant to the final prospectus ("Prospectus") dated March 17, 2021. A total of 2,000,000 common shares of the Company ("Shares") were subscribed for at a price of $0.10 per Share. After completion of the IPO, the Company now has 4,400,000 Shares issued and outstanding, with the directors and officers of the Company, in aggregate, holding 2,000,000 Shares, which Shares are subject to escrow restrictions pursuant to the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV").

Canaccord Genuity Corp.
