Closing bell

West Noble High School graduate Jeff Wysong recently traveled to New York City to attend the Nasdaq closing bell ceremony. He works for Sidley Austin, a Chicago-based law firm that was instrumental in the legal work for the new Nasdaq listing for Hennessy Capital Investment Corp. VI.

NEW YORK CITY — Jeff Wysong recently traveled to Times Square in New York City for the honor of helping to ring the closing bell at the Nasdaq stock market to celebrate his client’s initial public offering. The new public company, Hennessy Capital Investment Corp. VI, commenced trading under the ticker symbol “HCVIU” on Sept. 29, 2021.

Wysong, a 2008 West Noble High School graduate, works for Sidley Austin, a Chicago-based law firm that was instrumental in the legal work for the new Nasdaq listing.

Hennessy Capital Investment Corp. VI’s IPO ultimately raised total gross proceeds of approximately $341 million.

The company is a special purpose acquisition company, which are commonly called “SPACs”, founded by Daniel Hennessy. SPACs are formed for the purpose of acquiring or entering into a business combination with one or more businesses. The company intends to focus its search on target businesses in the industrial technology sector.

Following graduation from West Noble High School, Wysong, the son of Phil and Vi Wysong of Wawaka, graduated from Hillsdale College  in 2012 and Northwestern Law School in 2016. He and his wife, Jennifer, have three children.

“Never in a million years would I have thought I’d end up doing this type of work,” said Wysong. “Dream big and follow the doors God opens for you. It will take you to some amazing places.”
