Mercato Partners (NASDAQ:MPRA) closed its combination with Brazilian software firm Nuvini this afternoon and its shares and warrants are expected to begin trading on the Nasdaq under the symbols “NVNI” and “NVNIW” on October 2.

The combined company will continue to be led by its existing CEO and a seven-member Board including Mercato CEO Dr. Greg Warnock and CFO Scott Klossner. The parties have yet to release redemption figures, but Mercato expanded the deal’s PIPE to $12.8 million this week.
