Duddell Street Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ: DSACU)
A $175 million blank check company pursuing a business combination target in any business or industry, we intend to focus on global companies in telecom, media and technology (“TMT”), healthcare, fintech and consumer sectors with compelling Asian growth potential.
Duddell Street Acquisition Corporation (NASDAQ: DSACU) is a newly incorporated blank check company incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses, which we refer to throughout this prospectus as our initial business combination. We have not selected any specific business combination target and we have not, nor has anyone on our behalf, engaged in any substantive discussions, directly or indirectly, with any business combination target with respect to an initial business combination with us.
While we may pursue a business combination target in any business or industry, we intend to focus on global companies in telecom, media and technology (“TMT”), healthcare, fintech and consumer sectors with compelling Asian growth potential. We believe our management team and directors have the relevant skills and experience to identify companies that can best capture current market opportunities.
