Glenfarne Merger Corp. ("GGMC"), a blank check company newly incorporated for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities in the energy transition and electrification sector in the Americas, today announced the closing of its $250 million initial public offering.
The offering consisted of 25,000,000 units at a price of $10.00 per unit. The units began trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker symbol "GGMCU" on March 19, 2021. Each unit consists of one share of GGMC’s Class A common stock and one-third of one redeemable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one share of GGMC’s Class A common stock at a price of $11.50 per share, upon the consummation of an initial business combination.
GGMC is an affiliate of Glenfarne Group, LLC ("Glenfarne"), created to capitalize on the significant experience of Glenfarne’s senior management team, led by Founder and Managing Partner, Brendan Duval, in the infrastructure sector across the Americas. Founded in 2011, Glenfarne is a developer, owner-operator and asset manager of energy and infrastructure holdings across North and South America with two operating platforms: EnfraGen, which focuses on energy transition assets in grid stability and value-added renewables, and Alder Midstream, its gas infrastructure business.
Mizuho acted as the sole book running manager for the offering. The underwriter has been granted a 45-day option to purchase up to an additional 3,750,000 units offered by the Company to cover over-allotments, if any, at the initial public offering price.
