What type of companies will MSD Acquisition target?

MSD Acquisition said “now is a particularly attractive time to pursue a business combination” for various reasons including the number of new public listings in the U.S. being low.

The SPAC company is focused on buying companies in the technology and media markets. “While not limited to any sector, we expect our focus on high-growth companies will inevitably lead to opportunities in the technology and media sectors,” MSD Acquisition said.

MSD Acquisition said it will follow five specific guidelines when searching for companies to acquire including being market leader with a proven business model.

“We will seek to acquire a scaled, multibillion-dollar business with a leading market position in its industry. We intend to prioritize companies that operate in “winner takes all” or “winner takes most” industries,” said MSD Acquisition.

Other acquisition targeting guidelines include companies that have sustainable competitive advantages and large addressable markets along with runway for growth. “Our management team’s experience has taught us that differentiated businesses with sustainable competitive advantages or moats are best positioned to grow, withstand competition, maintain their unit economics, and create value over the long-term,” said the company.

The last two acquisition criteria’s are businesses with a “robust economic model with predictable, recurring revenue” and companies with a strong management team.

The firm said it has not selected or has had any “substantive discussions” with any business targets yet.
