Replay Acquisitions Corp.’s $250 Million Initial Public Offering

Greenberg Traurig and Walkers advised on the transaction

Replay Acquisition Corp. priced its initial public offering of 25,000,000 units at $10.00 per unit. The units are expected to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and trade under the ticker symbol RPLA.U beginning April 4, 2019. Each unit consists of one ordinary share and one-half of one warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one ordinary share at a price of $11.50 per share. Only whole warrants are exercisable. Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the ordinary shares and warrants are expected to be listed on the NYSE under the symbols RPLA and RPLA WS, respectively.

The Company was formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, amalgamation, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses. The Company may pursue an initial business combination target in any business, industry or geographical location, although the Company intends to focus on target businesses in Argentina and/or Brazil.
