RedBall Acquisition

General Information


While we may pursue an acquisition opportunity in any industry or sector, we intend to focus on businesses in the sports, media and data analytics sectors, with a focus on professional sports franchises, which complement our management team’s expertise and will benefit from our strategic and hands-on operational leadership. Our management team is led by Gerald Cardinale, a former Goldman Sachs partner who worked with the Steinbrenner family to create the Yankees Entertainment & Sports (“YES”) Network, and Billy Beane, the executive vice president of baseball operations for the Oakland A’s. Beane’s leadership and his winning approach with the A’s were chronicled by Michael Lewis in his best-selling book, “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game.” Brad Pitt played Beane in “Moneyball,” the 2011 movie based on the book.

We believe that the experience and capabilities of our management team will make us an attractive partner to potential target businesses, enhance our ability to complete a successful business combination, and bring value to the business post-business combination. Our management team represents a unique combination of operating, investing, financial and transactional experience. This group has a strong track record of creating value for shareholders in multiple sports, media and data analytics companies that we have led, managed and/or invested in.
