Golden Star Acquisition Corp.

General Information

(We are a blank check company incorporated in the Cayman Islands. This is a SPAC IPO – a unit offering. Each unit consists of one ordinary share, and one right to receive two-tenths (2/10) of an ordinary share upon the consummation of an initial business combination.)

We intend to focus on businesses that have a connection to the Asian market. We intend to seek middle-market growth companies with an enterprise value between $300 million and $400 million. 

We will seek to acquire those businesses that are currently strategically significant in the Asian markets. Such sectors include Internet and high technology, financial technology (FinTech, including technology applied in financial services or used to help companies manage the financial aspects of their business), clean energy, health care, consumer and retail, energy and resources, food processing, manufacturing and education.

We will seek to capitalize on the strength of our management team. Our team consists of experienced professionals and senior operating executives. Collectively, our officers and directors have decades of experience in mergers and acquisitions, and operating companies, in Asia. We believe we will benefit from their accomplishments, and specifically their current and recent activities with companies that have a connection to the Asian market, in identifying attractive acquisition opportunities. However, there is no assurance that we will complete a business combination.

Note: Our sponsor, G-Star Management Corp., a British Virgin Islands company, and certain members of our Board of Directors and management have significant business ties to or are based in, or reside in, the People’s Republic of China and Hong Kong. We may consider a business combination or an acquisition of assets with an entity or business with a physical presence or other significant ties to the PRC which may subject the post business combination business to the laws, regulations and policies of the PRC. Any target for a business combination may conduct operations through subsidiaries in China and variable interest entities, or VIEs, in China. VIEs are contractual arrangements and the structure involves unique risks to investors.

(Note: Golden Star Acquisition Corp. priced its SPAC IPO on May 1, 2023, in line with the terms in its prospectus: 6.0 million units at $10.00 each to raise $60.0 million. Golden Star Acquisition is the 13th SPAC IPO priced so far in 2023. The units were expected to be listed on NASDAQ and trade under the ticker symbol “GODNU” beginning Tuesday, May 2, 2023. Each unit consists of one ordinary share and one right to receive two-tenths (2/10) of an ordinary share. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the shares and rights are expected to be listed on NASDAQ under the symbols “GODN” and “GODNR”, respectively.)


(Background: Golden Star Acquisition Corp. drastically cut the size of its SPAC IPO – to 6.0 million units, down from 10.0 million units initially – at $10.00 each – to raise $60.0 million, according to an S-1/A filing dated Feb. 28, 2023. In that filing, Golden Star Acquisition also disclosed its proposed unit symbol – GODNU – and  changed the unit definition to the following: Each unit consists of one ordinary share and one right to receive two-tenths (2/10) of an ordinary share upon the consummation of the initial business combination. Previously, each right conveyed the right to receive one-tenth (1/10) of an ordinary share upon the consummation of the initial business combination.  Previously, Golden Star Acquisition had filed an update to its S-1/A, dated Sept. 15, 2022, but the blank check company had not disclosed proposed symbols for its stock and warrants to trade on the NASDAQ at that time. Golden Star Acquisition filed its S-1 on Dec. 9, 2021.)
