We are a blank check company formed under the laws of the State of Delaware on February 3, 2021. We were formed for the purpose of entering a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, recapitalization, reorganization, or other similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities, which we refer to as a “target business.” We may pursue a business combination opportunity in any business or industry we choose and intend to target businesses with enterprise values of approximately $250 million to $1.0 billion.
To date, our efforts have been limited to organizational activities as well as activities related to this offering. None of our officers, directors, promoters, and other affiliates has engaged in any substantive discussions on our behalf with representatives of other companies regarding the possibility of a potential business combination with us.
We intend to focus our search for an initial business combination on private companies involved in the Leisure Marine, Yachting and Superyachting industries that have either positive operating cash flow or compelling unit economics combined with a clear path to positive operating cash flow, tangible assets with significant barriers to entry, and experienced incentivized management teams.
Our selection process is expected to leverage a unique set of relationships by our Directors and Officers, with proven deal-sourcing capabilities to provide us with a strong pipeline of potential targets.
We expect to distinguish ourselves with our ability to Leverage our Extensive Network of Relationships to Create a Unique Pipeline of Acquisition Opportunities. In addition to our ability to access a deep network, we have established a Rigorous Systematic Process of Identifying Target Companies and Acquiring a Business that will be Well-Received by the Public Markets.
We believe that our directors’ and officers’ strong M&A and investment track record in both private and public markets, combined with extensive public market trading experience, will provide a distinct advantage for identifying, valuing, and completing a business combination that will meet our investors’ expectations.
OceanTech is providing an alternative path to becoming public. We believe our structure will make us an attractive business combination partner to prospective target businesses that desire to become a publicly listed company. A merger with us will offer a target business an alternative process to a public listing rather than the traditional initial public offering process. We believe that target businesses may favor this alternative, which we believe is less expensive, while offering greater certainty of execution than the traditional initial public offering.
