BOSTON – Mintz advised California-based clean energy Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC), Monterey Capital Acquisition Corporation, on its $92 million initial public offering (IPO) and listing on the Nasdaq Global Market. EF Hutton, division of Benchmark Investments, LLC, acted as the sole book running manager for the offering.
Monterey Capital is a newly-formed blank check company, which will target the clean energy transition market by focusing on businesses that replace current, and dirty, energy transmissions with clean solutions. Monterey Capital units are listed on Nasdaq under the symbol MCACU.
“The success of this listing goes to show that we are witnessing a sea change in new and emerging companies coming to market that view investing in sustainability and clean energy as an important priority for the future,” said Mr. Burton. “This is a particularly fantastic result for our client, especially set against the backdrop of a nervous market facing significant economic stress and difficulties.”
This is the second transaction in as many days that the Energy Team has completed. Mintz recently acted for BlueWave, a leading solar and energy storage developer, on its sale to Axium Infrastructure, an infrastructure investment management firm with a number of North American renewables portfolios. Mr. Burton also led this deal.
Mintz is a pioneering firm, recognized as an early adopter and at the forefront of SPAC transactions since the early 2000s. Having handled the first-ever New York Stock Exchange SPAC transaction, the firm’s interdisciplinary team draws from decades of experience guiding clients in a broad spectrum of industries through the intricacies of SPAC financings.
