This includes, but is not limited to, companies that are focused on: automation components and systems, robotics, mobility and autonomous motion, additive manufacturing, next-generation transportation and technologies for clean food, water and air. GSRM is led by co-CEOs Gus Garcia and Lewis Silberman, President Anantha Ramamurti and CFO Joseph Tonnos. The Company was formed in partnership with Meteora Capital, an investment adviser specializing in SPAC-related investments.

Once the securities comprising the units begin separate trading, the Class A common stock, warrants and rights are expected to be listed on the Nasdaq under the symbols “GSRM,” “GSRMW” and “GSRMR,” respectively.
