  • Taiwan-based Femco Steel Technology has approved a potential business merger with SPAC Chenghe Acquisition I.
  • If approved, Femco Steel Technology will delist from the Taipei stock exchange to move to a US exchange.
  • No information about valuation or other transaction details have been disclosed about the potential merger.

Taiwan-based Femco Steel Technology, a manufacturer of golf clubs, said that its board has given the nod of approval for a potential business combination with Chenghe Acquisition I (formerly known as LatAmGrowth SPAC). This proposed deal is seen as a strategic move that could see Femco delisting from the Taipei stock exchange and making the transition to a US exchange.

The potential merger was announced in an 8-K filing, but the document does not include any valuation or other transaction specifics. This lack of detail is common in early-stage merger talks and is expected to be provided as negotiations progress and terms are finalized.

Chenghe Acquisition I underwent some changes in October, acquiring the sponsorship stake of the late LatAmGrowth. This move was approved by shareholders, leading to an extension until October 2024. Following these adjustments, redemptions amounting to approximately $18.1 million left $43 million in the trust.

While the exact implications of this potential merger remain to be seen, it promises to bring significant changes to both companies. Should the merger be approved, Femco Steel Technology’s move to trading on a US exchange would likely increase the company’s visibility and attract a larger pool of potential investors.

As discussions and negotiations continue, industry observers will be watching closely to gauge the potential impact of this merger on the broader domain of SPACs and cross-border mergers and acquisitions.
