NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GSR II Meteora Acquisition Corp. (“GSRM” or the “Company”) announced today that it priced its initial public offering of 27,500,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $275,000,000.
GSRM is a newly incorporated, blank check company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. While the Company may pursue an initial business combination target in any business or industry, it intends to focus on high-growth businesses in the software, technology-enabled manufacturing and services, mobility and transportation sectors, as well as companies that help to address evolving environmental, social and governance related issues. This includes, but is not limited to, companies that are focused on: automation components and systems, robotics, mobility and autonomous motion, additive manufacturing, next-generation transportation and technologies for clean food, water and air. GSRM is led by co-CEOs Gus Garcia and Lewis Silberman, President Anantha Ramamurti and CFO Joseph Tonnos. The Company was formed in partnership with Meteora Capital, an investment adviser specializing in SPAC-related investments.
The units will be listed on the Nasdaq Global Market (“Nasdaq”), will trade under the ticker symbol “GSRMU” and will begin trading tomorrow, February 25, 2022. Each unit consists of one share of the Company’s Class A common stock, one-sixteenth of one right and one redeemable warrant. Each whole right entitles the holder thereof to receive one share of Class A common stock upon the consummation of an initial business combination. No fractional rights will be issued upon separation of the units and only whole rights will trade. Each warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one share of Class A common stock at an exercise price of $11.50 per share, subject to adjustment. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A common stock, rights and warrants are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq under the symbols “GSRM”, “GSRMR” and “GSRMW,” respectively.
Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. is acting as the sole underwriter for the initial public offering. GSRM has granted the underwriter a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 4,125,000 units, at the initial public offering price less the underwriting discount to cover over-allotments, if any. The offering is expected to close on March 1, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions.
