Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp (GGAAW) Warrants: Potential Risks and Opportunities in Upcoming Business Combination


Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp (GGAAW), a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), has grabbed attention in the financial market due to its potential acquisitions and business combinations in the near future. However, shareholders must consider the risks and opportunities inherent in the company’s securities, particularly the warrants. In this article, we delve into the terms of GGAAW’s public and private warrants and shed light on their risks, potential rewards, and implications on future business combinations.

Warrants Terms:

According to the SEC filing, Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp has agreed that within 20 business days after the closing of its initial business combination, the company will do its best to file with the SEC a post-effective amendment to the registration statement or a new registration statement covering the issuance of Class A ordinary shares. The company aims to ensure that the same becomes effective within 60 business days after the closing.

Risks from Delay in Registration:

Genesis Growth Tech cannot guarantee that it will be successful in filing the SEC registration as needed. Factors such as a fundamental change in the information set forth in the IPO Registration Statement or financial statements that are not current, complete, or accurate could hinder the process. Moreover, the SEC could issue a stop order. In such cases, the company would have to permit holders to exercise their warrants on a cashless basis. This could result in a reduction of the potential upside of the holders’ investment, as they would receive a smaller number of Class A ordinary shares upon a cashless exercise of the warrants they hold.

State Securities Laws:

The company’s Class A ordinary shares must be registered, qualified, or exempted from the securities laws of the exercising holder’s state to become exercisable. If the company is unable to do so, the warrants may expire worthless, and holders who acquired their warrants as part of a purchase will have paid the full price solely for the Class A ordinary shares in the units.

Possible Issuance of a Security Other than Class A Ordinary Shares:

In certain situations, including if Genesis Growth Tech is not the surviving entity in the initial business combination, the warrants may become exercisable for a security other than the Class A ordinary shares. In such cases, holders might receive a security of an unknown company, hence warranting due diligence from the company and its shareholders.

Impact of Registration Rights, Criteria and Guidelines on Target Business:

Genesis Growth Tech’s grant of registration rights to its Sponsor, Nomura, and other stakeholders could make it more challenging to complete the initial business combination. The future exercise of these rights might adversely affect the market price of the company’s Class A ordinary shares. Additionally, Genesis Growth Tech may enter into a business combination that does not meet its criteria and guidelines, which could result in an unfavorable investment outcome for investors and raise challenges in attaining shareholder approvals.


Genesis Growth Tech Acquisition Corp offers potential growth opportunities with its business combinations, but investors should weigh the risks associated with the company’s warrants. Shareholders must understand the terms, potential rewards, and risks before making any investment decisions. As the company continues to navigate the complex business combination process, investors must exercise due diligence and be prepared for any outcome.
