Item 8.01. Other Events.

On July 21, 2014, 1347 Capital Corp. (the "Company") consummated its initial public offering ("IPO") of 4,000,000 units ("Units"). Each Unit consists of one share of common stock, $0.0001 par value per share ("Common Stock"), one right ("Right") to receive one-tenth (1/10) of one share of Common Stock automatically upon consummation of an initial business combination (a "Business Combination") and one warrant ("Warrant") to purchase one-half of one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per full share. The Units were sold at an offering price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $40,000,000.

Simultaneously with the consummation of the IPO, the Company consummated the private placement ("Private Placement") to 1347 Investors LLC (the "Sponsor") of 180,000 units (the "Private Units") at a price of $10.00 per Private Unit and 600,000 warrants (the "$15 Exercise Price Sponsor Warrants"), each exercisable for one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $15.00 per share, at a price of $0.50 per $15 Exercise Price Sponsor Warrant, generating total proceeds of $2,100,000. The Private Units consist of one share of Common Stock, one right to receive one-tenth (1/10) of one share of Common Stock automatically upon consummation of a Business Combination and one warrant to purchase one-half of one share of Common Stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per full share.

A total of $40,000,000 of the net proceeds from the IPO and the Private Placement were placed in a trust account established for the benefit of the Company's public stockholders at JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. (the "Trust Account"), with Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company acting as trustee. Except for the withdrawal of interest to pay the Company's working capital requirements or franchise and income taxes, none of the funds held in the Trust Account will be released until the earlier of the completion of a Business Combination or the redemption of 100% of the Public Shares if the Company is unable to consummate a Business Combination within the required timeframe.

On July 23, 2014, the Company completed the sale of 600,000 additional Units pursuant to the exercise of the over-allotment option granted to the underwriters of the IPO. The Units issued pursuant to the over-allotment option were sold at a price of $10.00 per Unit, generating gross proceeds of $6,000,000. Simultaneously therewith, the Sponsor purchased an additional 18,000 Private Units at a price of $10.00 per Private Unit. As a result of the exercise of the over-allotment option and the additional purchase of Private Units by the Sponsor, an additional $6.0 million was deposited in the Trust Account.

An audited balance sheet as of July 21, 2014 reflecting receipt of the proceeds received by the Company in connection with the closing of the IPO and the Private Placement has been issued by the Company and is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
