Astro Aerospace Sponsors Leading SPAC, Parsec Capital Acquisitions Corp.
Astro Sponsors SPAC Focused on Space Economy, Technology and Transport Industries
Dallas, Texas--(Newsfile Corp. - April 21, 2021) - Astro Aerospace (OTCQB: ASDN) ("Company" or "Astro"), a global leader in electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aerial vehicles and drones, announced today its sponsorship of Parsec Capital Acquisitions Corp. ("Parsec"), an emerging SPAC investing in businesses within the space economy, technology and transport industries. Last month, Parsec CEO and Board member Patricia Trompeter was appointed to Astro's Board of Directors. The Parsec sponsorship is a huge development in driving Astro's mission to introduce greater environmentally and economically sustainable solutions to the aerial vehicle industry.
Parsec is ideally positioned with an offering size of $50 million. The SPAC focuses on smaller mid cap size targets allowing much greater freedom for asset selection. Parsec's three target industries continue to welcome more and more innovative technologies, pushing space economy towards a $1 trillion evaluation by 2040, the artificial intelligence market toward $390.9 billion by 2025, and the sustainable aviation fuel market toward $15.3 billion by 2030.
Parsec offers a calculated and strategic approach when sourcing opportunities due to its high-level expertise across its management team and Board of Directors. CEO Patricia Trompeter's career spans more than 16 years in mergers and acquisitions and over 15 years in financial management. Her financial competencies are matched by her breadth of knowledge in the aviation industry which she acquired throughout her career including positions at GE Capital Aircraft Services (GECAS) with the acquisition of Guinness Peat Aviation.
Ms. Trompeter's leadership makes Parsec part of a growing representation of female minority-led SPACs, which according to Bloomberg only half of the SPACs they reviewed had women present on their board.
Ms. Trompeter commented, "I have always had an obsession with aircraft industry and by nature space travel. Astro's vision for the future of transportation is a huge inspiration to Parsec. Astro's sponsorship will help us grow emerging businesses that will make a true impact on the environment and the way society functions. Astro can fully relate to our efforts as an emerging pioneer in the growing $46.7 billion eVTOL aircraft market."
Parsec's executive team also includes CFO, Paul Haber who brings 25 years in corporate finance and capital markets. Mr. Haber and Ms. Trompeter are also active on the SPAC's Board of Directors. They are joined by world-class Board.
"Astro's sponsorship of Parsec is a natural fit," said Astro CEO, Bruce Bent. "Parsec's vision and goals align with Astro's objectives, and the Parsec team brings decades of experience to successfully grow companies while increasing shareholder value. Astro had the pleasure of welcoming Ms. Trompeter to our Board last month, and we could not be happier to invest in a SPAC under her leadership."
