SPAC IPO FILING: Redstar Partners on the OTCBB

Print Email

Redstar Partners, Inc. is another blank check company, although this IPO filing looks a little different than many other SPAC IPO filings.  For starters, this blank check company will sell its units for $8.00 rather than the normal $10.00 per unit offering seen from most SPAC’s.

Morgan Joseph is listed as the underwriter and the company has noted for filing purposes that it will sell up to $36 million in securities.  Redstar will also be listed on the OTCBB rather than being a fully-listed SPAC on AMEX or NASDAQ.

Redstar Partners, Inc. is a Cayman Islands blank check company recently formed (incorporated on January 3, 2008) for the purpose of acquiring, through a share capital exchange, asset acquisition, plan of arrangement, recapitalization, reorganization or other similar business combination, or control through contractual arrangements, an operating business having significant operations in the People’s Republic of China.  It says that it will not be limited to a particular industry, although it notes that it does intend to focus on the electrical equipment and components industry.
