General Information

MSD Acquisition Corp. bears the initials of Michael Dell, our strategic advisor, who in 1984 founded Dell Computer Corp.,  the predecessor of Dell Technologies (NYSE: DELL). Mr. Dell’s vision of how technology should be designed, manufactured and sold forever changed the technology industry. (MSD Acquisition Corp., the newly organized blank-check company, is incorporated in the Cayman Islands.)

We plan to leverage our deal experience, investment track record and expertise across various high-growth sectors, including technology and media. Our founding partners are Gregg Lemkau and John Phelan. Mr. Lemkau spent 28 years at Goldman Sachs, where he was most recently Co-Head of the Investment Banking Division. Mr. Phelan is the co-founding partner and CIO of MSD Partners and MSD Capital, where he is responsible for overseeing investment strategy. Mr. Dell and Mr. Phelan co-founded MSD Capital in 1998 to manage the wealth of Mr. Dell and his family.
