MNG Airlines, a global logistics provider and e-commerce enabler, has entered into a definitive agreement to become publicly traded via a business combination with Golden Falcon Acquisition Corp., a special-purpose acquisition company. The transaction is anticipated to close in the first half of 2023, after which MNGA will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol ‘‘MNGA’’. As a public company, MNGA is expected to gain increased financial flexibility, and to be well-positioned to unlock new growth possibilities and maximize value creation.

Ali Sedat Özkazanc, CEO of MNGA, stated, that the company sees significant value creation potential from becoming a publicly listed company in the U.S., with the anticipation that it will enable transformative commercial agreements, generate an acquisition currency, and align organization incentives with shareholders.

Murathan Gunal, Chairman of MNGA and CEO of MAPA Group, added, MNG Airlines is an international company today with a global presence including multinational corporate clients in the U.S., Asia, and Europe. MNGA celebrated 25 years of operational excellence and listing on the NYSE is a natural step in its company’s history.

Gunal added that MNGA is delighted about delivering on the anticipated value-creation opportunity in the future.

MNG Airlines is based in Istanbul started operations in 1996 and is a part of the Mapa Group conglomerate. It serves over 15,000 corporate customers across 41 countries through over 3,500 flights per year.

For the three months ended 30 September 2022, the Company’s revenue increased by 47% year-on-year to $90 million, net income of $26 million, and Adjusted EBITDA of $27 million (30% margin). Previous twelve months revenue increased by 39% year-on-year to $353 million, net income of $61 million, and Adjusted EBITDA of $116 million (33% margin). Adjusted EBITDA margin for the previous twelve months has enhanced by 400 basis points as compared with 2019, and revenue has increased at a 37% compound annual growth percentage during this period.

Ever since its IPO in December 2020, the Golden Falcon management team assessed over 500 potential targets. Earlier to implementing the Business Combination Agreement with MNGA, the Golden Falcon team performed extensive due diligence during the past ten months, backed by its advisor UBS Investment Bank. To closely align incentives with the Company and existing shareholders, the Golden Falcon team has come to an agreement to subject over 90% of sponsor shares obtained as merger concerns to a vesting strategy.

The proposed business combination, which has been collectively authorized by both the Board of Directors of Golden Falcon and the Board of Directors of MNGA, is anticipated to close in the first half of 2023, subject to approval by Golden Falcon’s stockholders and other regular closure terms.
