Item 8.01.

Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On October 23, 2020, H.I.G. Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) consummated an initial public offering (the “IPO”) of 32,500,000 units (the “Units”) at $10.00 per Unit. The underwriters have 45 days to exercise an over-allotment option to purchase 4,875,000 additional Units. Additionally, the Company consummated a private placement with H.I.G. Acquisition Advisors, LLC of 5,666,667 private placement warrants at a price of $1.50 per warrant (the “Private Placement”). The net proceeds from the IPO together with certain of the proceeds from the Private Placement, $325,000,000 in the aggregate (the “Offering Proceeds”), were placed in a trust account established for the benefit of the Company’s public shareholders and the underwriters of the IPO with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee. Except with respect to interest earned on the Offering Proceeds held in the trust account that may be released to the Company to pay its income taxes, if any, the Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association will provide that the Offering Proceeds will not be released from the trust account (1) to the Company, until the completion of its initial business combination, or (2) to its public shareholders, until the earliest of (a) the completion of the its initial business combination, and then only in connection with those Class A ordinary shares that such shareholders properly elected to redeem, (b) the redemption of any public shares properly tendered in connection with a shareholder vote to amend the Company’s amended and restated memorandum and articles of association (A) to modify the substance or timing of the Company’s obligation to provide holders of its Class A ordinary shares the right to have their shares redeemed in connection with the Company’s initial business combination or to redeem 100% of its public shares if the Company does not complete its initial business combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO or (B) with respect to any other provision relating to the rights of holders of its Class A ordinary shares, and (c) the redemption of the public shares if the Company has not consummated its business combination within 24 months from the closing of the IPO, subject to applicable law.

An audited balance sheet as of October 23, 2020 reflecting receipt of the Offering Proceeds has been issued by the Company and is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
