DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spring Valley Acquisition Corp. II (the “Company”), a blank check company formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses, today announced the pricing of its initial public offering of 20,000,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units will be listed on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) and trade under the ticker symbol “SVIIU” beginning October 13, 2022.
Each unit consists of one Class A ordinary share of the Company, one right to receive one-tenth of one Class A ordinary share of the Company and one-half of one redeemable public warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one Class A ordinary share of the Company at a price of $11.50 per share. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A ordinary shares, rights and warrants are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq under the symbols “SVII,” “SVIIR” and “SVIIW,” respectively. The offering is expected to close on October 17, 2022, subject to customary closing conditions.
While the Company may pursue an initial business combination target in any business or industry, the Company intends to target companies in the sustainability industry, including renewable energy, resource optimization, environmental services, and grid infrastructure, which complement the backgrounds of the Company’s management team. The Company is led by its Chief Executive Officer, Chris Sorrells, and Chief Financial Officer, Rob Kaplan. The Company’s primary sponsor is an affiliate of Pearl Energy Investment Management, LLC (“Pearl”), an investment firm that focuses on partnering with experienced management teams to invest in the North American energy and sustainability sectors. Pearl typically targets opportunities requiring $25 million to $150 million of equity capital.
