Tidjane Thiam’s blank check company has agreed to combine with solar company Complete Solaria, a rare recent deal of note for the troubled SPAC market.

Thiam’s Freedom Acquisition I has entered into a definitive business combination agreement with the newly formed US provider, according to a statement Monday. The combination will give Complete Solaria an equity value of about $888 million.
