Attracting Target Businesses
Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp. believes that its structure and the management team’s background will make it an attractive business partner for target businesses. As an existing public company, it offers a target business an alternative to the traditional IPO through a merger or other business combination. In this process, the owners of the target business can exchange their equity interests in the target company for shares of Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp. or a combination of shares and cash. This allows the target company to tailor the consideration to the specific needs of the sellers.
Speed and Cost Advantages
The process of executing a business combination with Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp. is typically quicker and entails fewer costs compared to the traditional IPO process. The IPO process usually takes a significantly longer time to complete and involves substantial expenses, such as underwriting discounts and commissions, which may not be present to the same extent in a business combination. By merging with Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp., target businesses can go public faster and with fewer costs, enjoying the benefits that public listing offers in terms of raising capital and providing incentives for management.
Benefits of Being a Public Company
Once the business combination is completed, the target business will have effectively become a public company, enjoying benefits such as greater access to capital, an additional means of offering incentives to management, and the ability to use company shares as currency for acquisitions. Public listing can also foster growth by augmenting the company’s profile among potential customers and vendors, and by aiding in attracting talented employees.
Emerging Growth Company Status
Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp. is an “emerging growth company” as defined in the U.S. Jumpstart Our Business Startups (JOBS) Act. This classification allows the company to benefit from certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that apply to other public companies, such as reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation and exemptions from holding non-binding advisory votes on executive compensation. These exemptions may make the company’s securities less attractive to some investors, potentially resulting in a less active trading market for its securities and increased price volatility.
Effecting the Initial Business Combination
Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp. plans to execute its initial business combination using cash from its initial public offering and private placement of private placement warrants. The company may also issue additional securities or incur debt, as needed, to complete the business combination. In evaluating a potential target business, the company will conduct extensive due diligence, including meeting with management and employees, document review, interviews with customers and suppliers, and inspection of facilities, among other evaluation methods.
Lack of Business Diversification
As a special purpose acquisition company, Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp. will not engage in any operations and will remain undiversified until it completes its initial business combination. This means that the prospects for the company’s success will depend entirely on the future performance of a single business. While this may expose the company to risks associated with a lack of diversification, the unique structure and management team’s expertise are expected to help mitigate these risks.
Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp. aims to attract target businesses through its unique structure and management team’s expertise by providing a quicker and more cost-effective path to public listing. While potential target businesses may view the company’s status and lack of operational history as a drawback, Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp. remains focused on mitigating these concerns by leveraging its management team’s operational and capital planning experience during the evaluation and execution of its initial business combination.
