FOXO, a technology-powered life insurance firm, has signed a definitive merger agreement with Delwinds Insurance Acquisition to go public.

The merger with Delwinds, a special purpose acquisition company, will value the combined entity at $369m.

FOXO expects to raise up to $224m from the transaction, which includes up to $201m cash held in the trust account of Delwinds.
