TLGY Acquisition Corp.

General Information

We intend to focus on targets in industries where we believe our management team and our founder’s expertise will provide us with a competitive advantage, including biopharma or technology enabled business-to-consumer (“B2C”) industries globally. We believe the innovations in these sectors that have emerged in recent years, partly as a response to the broad social, economic, and behavioral changes arising from the COVID-19 global pandemic, provide attractive opportunities to target high growth companies with technology and business model innovation. For example, by virtue of our team’s industry network and our founder’s recent investments, we have turned our attention towards certain sub-segments in healthcare, including neurology and rare diseases, where we believe we can find attractive targets for our business combination. (Incorporated in the Cayman Islands)

While we will target companies globally, we believe that our team’s strong ties to Asia gives us an advantage in sourcing Asia-originated biopharma companies with global aspirations for the purposes of a business combination in the U.S. market. We believe favorable innovation and regulatory trends in Asia should position us well for such opportunities. In B2C technologies, we will look for ways to capitalize on our team’s previous work with and/or investments; for example, we will leverage our experience in Asian gaming companies and focus on the implications of the big changes that are taking place in the industry due to the surge in the post-COVID consumer demand for a wide range of virtual entertainment and lifestyle products. We will not undertake an initial business combination with any entity with principal business operations in China (including Hong Kong and Macau).


Mr. Jin-Goon Kim is our founder, chairman and CEO. Mr. Kim has two decades of senior leadership experience in private equity investment and as a serial transformational CEO in industry-leading public and private companies. From 2006 to 2016 Mr. Kim was with TPG Capital, a leading global private equity firm, where he served as a partner and a member of its Asia investment review committee. In his capacity as a TPG partner, Mr. Kim also served as a CEO or transformation leader of multiple TPG portfolio companies, often in parallel. Before joining TPG Capital, Mr. Kim served from 2002 to 2006 as president of Dell Korea, the Korean affiliate of Dell, a global leader in hardware, software and services with more than $60 billion in annual sales in 2020. He successfully led the implementation of Dell’s direct model in Korea for the first time, firmly establishing Dell as a leading player in a market where it had previously struggled to secure a meaningful market presence or to build a profitable business. Mr. Kim earned an MPP from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard College, a diploma from the Hopkins-Nanjing Centre, and an AB in East Asian Languages and Civilizations and Government from Harvard College.
