Railroad SPAC Integrated Rail and Resources Acquisition Prices US$200 Million IPO

Special purpose acquisition company Integrated Rail and Resources Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: IRRXU) went public today on the New York Stock Exchange. The company is seeking to raise US$200.0 million through its initial public offering.

The offering consists of 20.0 million company units priced at US$10.00 per unit. Each unit is composed of one Class A common share and one-half of a purchase warrant. Each whole warrant is redeemable to purchase one common share at US11.50 per share. The units will be trading under the symbol “IRRXU” but once the securities are separated, the common shares and the purchase warrants will be trading on the New York-based big board under the symbols “IRRX” and “IRRXW”, respectively.

Stifel, Nicolaus & Company serves as the sole bookrunner for the offering. The company has granted the underwriters a 45-day over-allotment option to purchase additional 3.0 million company units, potentially bringing the offering proceeds to US$230.0 million.

The newly-organized blank check firm is sponsored by DHIP Natural Resources Investments, which is co-owned by investment firm DHIP Group and Texas-based railroad holding company Rio Grande Pacific. The latter’s CEO Richard Bertel will lead the blank check company as the Chairman and CEO.

The firm intends to focus its search for business combination with firms operating “in bulk commodities, such as North American railroad companies”.
