While the Company may pursue an initial business combination with a partner company in any business or industry, it initially focused on technology businesses. The public markets in general, as well as the SPAC market in particular, remain challenged, making it difficult for us to partner with a high-quality technology company at an attractive valuation. We decided to expand our focus to include the biotechnology industry, where we believe the market backdrop remains more favorable. To this end, we have augmented our management team and board with highly qualified individuals with significant experience building, operating and investing in biotechnology companies.
The Company is blank check company organized for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, recapitalization, reorganization, or other similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities.
