Company Description:

We are a newly organized blank check company incorporated on May 15, 2018 as a Delaware corporation, incorporated for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses.

We intend to focus our search for target businesses in the education, training and edtech industries. We intend to build an industry leading sustainable education platform with attractive returns on invested capital and robust free cash flow generation. By consummating a business combination with a target business in the education, training and edtech industries, we hope to offer public market investors near-tern access and direct investment exposure to the long-term trends favorably impacting these sectors and to the consolidation and value-creation opportunities related thereto. We intend to take a patient and disciplined approach to investing with an emphasis on compounding capital over the long-term. We will also look for target businesses with proven management teams who will foster an ownership culture with strong alignment of incentives.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, our efforts to identify a prospective target business will not be limited to any specific geographic region or industry. As a result, if we seek to acquire a target business in an industry other than the education, training and edtech industries, many of the disclosures contained in this prospectus, such as the benefits and risks related to edtech companies, would no longer be applicable to our company.
