Latest SPAC News:  Tanzanian entrepreneur plans $4 billion agriculture investment via SPAC, Elizabeth Warren backs SEC’s tougher SPAC plan, and TMTG unveils new features on Truth Social


Tanzanian entrepreneur Dewji plans $2-4 billion grains production investment via SPAC

The head of one of Tanzania’s biggest firms, Mohammed Dewji, said he plans to float an agriculture company worth up to $4 billion in New York or London next year, with money raised mainly from development banks.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February sent global grain and fertiliser prices soaring, though they have retreated in recent weeks. Inflation has subsequently risen in many African countries.

He said he aimed to structure the venture, for which he has yet to secure land, as a SPAC and would himself put up $400 million as 10% to 20% of total funding.
