Graf Acquisition Corp. IV (“Graf IV”), a $172 million special purpose acquisition company, was 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. The company is part of the G|SPACs platform, which will be initially comprised of Graf Acquisition Corp. II, Graf Acquisition Corp. III and Graf IV, each with the same sponsor parent entity, board of directors and management team and differentiated only by size.
We are a generalist SPAC platform, which means we are open to a business combination with a company in any industry as long as our business combination criteria, and every member of our team is exclusively focused on SPACs and is dedicating 100% of their time to the G|SPACs platform.
We will seek to capitalize on the significant experience and relationships of James A. Graf, our Chief Executive Officer, Gus Garcia and Lewis Silberman our Co-Presidents and Directors, Anantha Ramamurti, our Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, Anthony A. Kuznik, our Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary, Sabrina McKee, our Executive Vice President, Strategy and the other members of our management team in identifying and consummating an initial business combination. We will seek to capitalize on our management teams, in aggregate, more than 150 years of experience in SPACs, structured mergers and acquisitions, private equity, capital markets and corporate management. We believe this depth and breadth of current SPAC market insight is unique and will serve as a differentiator in a highly competitive market. We believe that our management teams experience and SPAC market insight will allow our management team to efficiently identify and prioritize competitive processes for targets that are most viable for the SPAC and broader public market. Our management team has an extensive network of private company clients, investment bankers, private equity and debt investors, high net worth families and their advisors, commercial bankers, attorneys, management consultants, accountants and other transaction intermediaries, as well as corporate sector executives and board members which will give a competitive advantage in pursuing a broad range of opportunities.
