VT5 activity update 3M 2021/22

Following the successful IPO on SIX, activities on target search have begun since the beginning of 2022 with multiple interesting leads.

VT5, the first Swiss SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company), successfully completed its Initial Public Offering (IPO) on SIX Swiss Exchange with the listing and trading of its shares and warrants as of 15 December 2021. In the IPO, which was oversubscribed not least thanks to strong commitments from cornerstone and anchor investors, net proceeds of CHF 198 million were raised and put in escrow accounts until a business combination can be realized.

Since the beginning of 2022, the Board of Directors and the management started extensive work on the search for a combination target. Being the first SPAC in Switzerland, VT5 meets with high interest. Fruitful discussions have ensued since the IPO and interesting projects are under closer scrutiny with multiple NDA's having been signed during the past weeks. We were also able to screen various new ideas which were brought in from VT5's internal and external networks. Currently, we are working intensively on a shortlist.

The Board of Directors plans to publish further information at the latest together with the 1H 2021/22 reporting.
