Precision Agriculture Firm Braiin to go Public via $215 Million Partnership with NARC

31 Mar 2023

Farming has come a long way from the traditional practices of the past. With the advent of technology, it has become more industrialized and efficient, leading to better crop yields and overall farm management. Precision agriculture is one such technology that has revolutionized the industry. It allows farmers to manage their farms more precisely by providing them with insights into crop growth, crop protection, weather patterns, and other crucial factors that affect crop yield.

According to the BIS Research market report, the global precision agriculture market was valued at $7.89 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $14.61 billion in 2027, following a CAGR of 13.12% during 2022-2027.

With such rapid growth in the industry, it comes as no surprise that precision agriculture firm Braiin Limited has announced its plans to go public.

On March 20, 2023, Northern Revival Acquisition Corporation (NASDAQ: NRAC) announced its partnership with Braiin Limited. This $215 million business combination agreement would allow Braiin to enter the public markets, making its products and services accessible to a larger pool of capital. The move will undoubtedly increase awareness of their innovative technologies, helping farmers worldwide manage their farms more efficiently.

According to the BCA, NRAC will exchange freshly issued ordinary shares of NRAC for all of the outstanding Braiin shares from its current shareholders. Shareholders of Braiin, who own all of the company’s outstanding common stock, have agreed to transfer their shares to NRAC in accordance with the BCA. All Braiin convertible securities will be turned into Braiin ordinary shares prior to closing, and these shares will then be exchanged for NRAC ordinary shares. The combined company's pro forma valuation is anticipated to be around $215 million.

Current Braiin shareholders will own approximately 65% of the post-closing combined public company, assuming no redemptions by NRAC's public shareholders. They will keep 100% of their equity through new ordinary shares of NRAC.

Braiin is in a prime position to assist in addressing the issue of producing more food on existing farms with limited new land suitable for agricultural cultivation as the world's population is predicted to increase by 2.2 billion people by 2050. The deal is anticipated to conclude in Q2 or Q3 of 2023, and we eagerly anticipate seeing how Braiin's creative solutions will affect the agricultural sector.
