Item 3.01Notice of Delisting or Failure to Satisfy a Continued Listing Rule or Standard; Transfer of Listing.

The information under Item 8.01 regarding the delisting by the New York Stock Exchange (the "NYSE") is incorporated into this Item 3.01 by reference.

Item 8.01Other Events.

On July 12, 2023, Hawks Acquisition Corp (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing that the per-share redemption price for the Company’s public shares (as defined below) will be approximately $10.30 and that the Company will redeem all of its outstanding shares of Class A common stock, par value $0.0001 (the “Class A Common Stock”), other than shares of Class A Common Stock that have been converted from shares of Class B Common Stock, par value $0.0001 per share (such shares to be redeemed, the “public shares”), effective as of the close of business on July 14, 2023, because the Company will not consummate an initial business combination within the time period required by its Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.

The Company’s securities ceased trading on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) on July 12, 2023, following which the Company expects that the NYSE will file a Form 25 with the SEC to delist its securities on or about July 14, 2023. The Company thereafter expects to file a Form 15 with the SEC to terminate the registration of its securities under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
