Quanergy, which provides lidar sensors and 3D perception software, has entered into a definitive business combination agreement with CITIC Capital Acquisition.

Quanergy Systems (Sunnyvale, CA), a provider of solid-state lidar sensors, and CITIC Capital Acquisition (CCAC; New York, NY) have entered into a definitive agreement that will result in Quanergy becoming a publicly listed company. Upon closing of the transaction, the combined company will be named Quanergy Systems, Inc. and is expected to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the ticker symbol “QNGY.”
