Forest Road Acquisition, a blank check company formed by Forest Road targeting TMT businesses, filed on Thursday with the SEC to raise up to $250 million in an initial public offering.

Forest Road Acquisition plans to target the TMT industry, with specific focus on the new audience aggregation platforms transforming the TMT landscape, premium intellectual property driving significant value expansion, and other broad themes.

Forest Road Acquisition was founded in 2020 and plans to list on the NYSE under the symbol FRX.U. Cantor Fitzgerald is the sole bookrunner on the deal.

FRX.U

We are a blank check company formed for the purpose of effecting a merger, capital stock exchange, asset acquisition, stock purchase, reorganization, or similar business combination. We currently intend to concentrate our efforts on identifying businesses in the technology, media, and telecommunications (“TMT”) space that align with the following macro themes: new audience aggregation platforms transforming the TMT landscape; premium intellectual property (“IP”) driving significant value expansion; consumer behavior fundamentally changing; cutting-edge technologies facilitating new offerings; evolving ecosystem reshaping traditional business models; and companies in need of capital due to idiosyncratic market conditions. We will seek to capitalize on the significant experience, relationships, and contacts of our officers and directors, The Forest Road Company, the managing member of our Sponsor (“Forest Road”), and strategic advisors to complete our initial business combination. We believe that our team’s distinguished and long-term track record of sourcing, acquiring, and building next-generation media and entertainment platforms, along with other investments and operational experience in consumer-facing industries, will provide us with differentiated consumer insights and sourcing opportunities.
