The Company is a blank check company formed for the purpose of entering into a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses.

Concurrently with the initial business combination, the Company currently plans to merge with Gamers Club Holdings, LLC, a gaming technology subscription platform and community hub based in Brazil and an affiliate of GEEX Sponsor, LLC, the Company's sponsor.
