About Cartica Acquisition Corp
Cartica Acquisition Corp is a special purpose acquisition company, incorporated as a Cayman Islands exempted company for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities.
Although we may explore opportunities in any industry or geography, it is our goal to merge with an India-focused technology firm that will benefit from our team’s extensive global investment and operating experience.
Potential business combination partners may be incorporated in any jurisdiction but are likely to have an operational or business focus in India, to serve the large and growing Indian market, and preferably with an ambition to grow and expand internationally.
Our strategy is to identify and complete a business combination with a suitable business combination partner focused on the technology space in India. Our focus on Indian technology firms is driven by the extensive investment opportunities available in India. We believe there are numerous potential business combination partners in our target sector that already have early-stage investors and could greatly benefit from gaining access to mature capital markets in the U.S. We believe we understand the growth and profitability profiles of such business combination partners and can connect them with attractive long-term capital providers from deeper, more liquid and more mature international markets.
Extensive Investment Experience
We are seasoned investors and dealmakers with extensive global experience within different industries, deal sizes and structures, and across multiple macroeconomic and industry cycles. Our team’s expertise ranges from recognizing investment themes, developing and executing investment strategies, identifying investment opportunities, executing transactions, and advising companies post-investment to support their growth and development.
Our directors and officers have an extensive and deep network, both in India and globally, that will enable us to identify attractive opportunities. Our directors and officers have several decades of investing and operating experience, skilled in public and private company management, and possess an extensive history of dealing with global investors. We believe that our directors and officers will also play a valuable role in helping us introduce exciting, high-growth firms in the Indian technology space to global capital market investors, acting as a credible interlocutor between these two groups.
