Israeli company HUB Cyber Security, which develops confidential computing cybersecurity solutions, announced on Wednesday that it will be merging with Mount Rainier Acquisition Corp., a Nasdaq traded SPAC (special purpose acquisition company). Upon closing of the proposed transaction, the combined company will operate under the "HUB Security" name and is expected to be listed on Nasdaq under the new ticker symbol "HUBC."

The deal will provide HUB with up to approximately $176 million in additional cash, assuming no redemptions by Mount Rainier's public stockholders. HUB also announced that it entered into Subscription Agreements with Israeli and American institutional investors for gross proceeds of approximately $50 million through a private placement.
