Broadband firm Starry to go public in near-US$1.7 billion SPAC deal

Oct 7, 2021

Broadband firm Starry to go public in near-US$1.7 billion SPAC deal 07 Oct 2021 07:54PM (Updated: 07 Oct 2021 07:52PM) Starry Inc said on Thursday it has agreed to go public through a merger with blank-check firm FirstMark Horizon Acquisition Corp in a deal that would value the broadband services provider at US$1.66 billion. As part of the agreement, Starry will get US$452 million in cash, including US$130 million via private investment in public equity, and a concurrent equity financing round from investors such as Fidelity Management & Research Company, Tiger Global Management and affiliates of FirstMark Capital, among others. Funds from the transaction will be used to grow and deploy Starry's services across the United States and to pay off existing debt, the company said. The Starry-FirstMark deal comes at a time when special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) mergers in the U.S. capital market have seen downturn in the recent months. Still, deal-making activity has set new records this year. FirstMark, a SPAC backed by New York venture capital firm FirstMark Capital, raised US$360 million through an upsized initial public offering in October last year. The combined firm will list on a national exchange under the symbol "STRY" after the merger, which is expected to close by the first quarter of next year. SPACs are shell companies with no business operations that are raised with the intent to merge with a private entity at a later date in an effort to take it public, bypassing a traditional IPO route.
