We are a blank check company focused on the Asia Pacific region, excluding China, and the clean energy sector. Each unit consists of one share of stock and one warrant redeemable for one share of stock. (Incorporated in the Cayman Islands)
While we may pursue a target in any industry, section or geography, we intend to focus our search for a target business in Asia Pacific, excluding China, (with emphasis on Australia) and Canada. We will search for companies engaged in the clean energy industry, concentrating on the utilization of “clean coal” or other evolving segments in the clean energy ecosystem, particularly the use of carbon, hydrogen and renewable energy. Other areas may include energy storage, distributed energy, zero-emission transportation, carbon utilization, low or carbon-free industrial applications and sustainable manufacturing.
We believe that clean energy and sustainability solutions are revolutionizing many traditional industries and creating numerous investment opportunities which are driven by important long-term global trends, such as the cost of carbon emissions, regulatory incentive programs, and consumers’ increasing value placed on clean energy products and services, in addition to advancements in technology providing for more cost-effective solutions and alternatives to fossil fuels. We believe that the regulatory frameworks incentivizing the adoption of sustainable practices and technologies will become increasingly favorable to the sectors that we are targeting. These trends provide long-term benefits for companies that develop and distribute services and products that take part of an integrated approach to the continued decarbonization of the economy.
We intend to target the growth-oriented subsectors of the clean and sustainable energy industry that present particularly attractive investment opportunities. We do not intend to acquire early-stage start-up companies, companies with speculative business plans or companies that are excessively leveraged. We are not, however, required to complete our initial business combination with a clean and sustainable energy business and, as a result, we may pursue a business combination beyond that sector and scope. We will seek to acquire high-quality businesses that can generate attractive, risk-adjusted returns for shareholders.
We believe our management team is uniquely positioned to source and evaluate deals globally, with strong relationships in Asia Pacific (and particularly in Australia) and Canada which may offer attractive growth prospects with advantageous valuation multiples. We believe that our expertise and experience in major worldwide markets, including Asia Pacific, give us a robust pool of targets and increasing the possibility to maximize returns. In addition, our management team has extensive expertise in the evolution of clean energy, especially in Asia Pacific, which will enable us to better evaluate and source target companies. Our management team is also experienced in executing complex financial structures for large scale projects in the energy industry in Asia Pacific, Canada and Australia, which will give us access to leaders in the energy industry and the ability to facilitate future energy projects. We believe this approach, as well as our management team’s recognized track record of completing acquisitions across a variety of subsectors within the clean energy industry will provide meaningful opportunities to drive value creation for shareholders.
