Nukkleus, Inc. (OTC: NUKK) has announced a business combination agreement with the China-based special purpose acquisition company Brilliant Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: BRLI). The transaction values the company at a pre-merger enterprise value of US$140 million.
The combined company, expected to operate under Nukkleus, will trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol “NUKK”.
“We are very excited that Brilliant has recognized the opportunity Nukkleus provides its shareholders,” said Nukkleus CEO Emil Assentato. “Nukkleus, through the use of leading-edge technology, bridges many asset class execution points and applies this technology to revolutionize global money movement.”
