On June 13, Holisto Ltd, a leading technology-based online travel booking platform, and Moringa Acquisition Corp, a special purpose acquisition company, announced that they entered a business combination agreement that would get Holisto publicly listed on the Nasdaq. Holisto Ltd’s expected pro forma equity value will be approximately $405 million, thanks to this business combination.
Moringa’s non-redeeming public shareholders can receive a pro-rata portion of a bonus pool of up to an additional 1,725,000 shares at transaction close. This would result in a merger consideration of between 1.15 and 1.6 Holisto ordinary shares for each such Moringa Class A ordinary share not redeemed. However, the ratio of merger consideration for non-redeeming shareholders will depend on the number of Moringa shares redeemed.
“From the outset we were inspired by the opportunity to disrupt the large, fragmented and complex travel booking market, using advanced big data and AI technologies that enable incremental cost savings and simplicity through the ability to combine offerings from multiple sources, Our combination with Moringa and access to public markets will allow Holisto to continue to aggressively leverage our technology by scaling our platform and infrastructure and expand our customer acquisition and brand awareness.”
- Eran Shust, Chief Executive Officer and co-Founder of Holisto.
“We are incredibly excited to announce the merger with Holisto. Holisto is innovating with advanced technology solutions in a large, global market which is ripe for transformation for the benefit of the consumer traveler. We look forward to our partnership and opportunity to leverage our expertise as Holisto continues to rapidly scale its business.”
- Ilan Levin, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Moringa
