We intend to focus on businesses with a connection to the Asian market. We will primarily seek to acquire one or more growth businesses with a total enterprise value of between $300 million and $600 million. Our focus will include these sectors: clean energy, the Internet and high technology, financial technology (FinTech), health care, consumer and retail, energy and resources, manufacturing and education. We believe that we will add value to these businesses primarily by providing them with access to the U.S. capital markets.
