We are a newly organized blank check company – also known as a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) – incorporated in the Cayman Islands.
We intend to focus on businesses that have their primary operations in the technology-enabled healthcare services industry in the Asia-Pacific region. We intend to acquire a target business in Asia, which includes the People’s Republic of China, or “PRC.” In addition, our officers and directors have significant ties to the PRC. There are significant legal and operational risks associated with investing in a target business with its primary operations in PRC. (See the “Risk Factors” section of the prospectus.)
We will primarily seek to acquire one or more growth businesses with a total enterprise value of between $200 million and $800 million.
it is our intention to pursue prospective targets that are in the public and private healthcare, medical services and technology-enabled healthcare services sectors. We will look for companies with established brands, stable cash flow, and readiness to access capital markets. In addition, we want to find companies that are truly technology driven and have strong industry competencies in the healthcare services industry.
While we will give priority to companies in technology-enabled healthcare and medical services sectors, we will have no specific industry restriction, and we plan on exploring opportunities in enterprise services, artificial intelligence, culture and media, computer and internet technologies, new consumer brands, blockchain and other areas that show the interest of investors.
