Acamar Partners is a group of investment professionals with significant experience investing in and operating private and public companies. The group has a demonstrated value creation and business expansion track record, having helped multiple businesses expand internationally, enter new markets and channels, and identify and execute M&A opportunities.
In February 2019 Acamar Partners sponsored the Nasdaq IPO of Acamar Partners Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company targeting a $300 million to $1 billion equity investment in a company in the consumer and retail sectors with a leading position in its segment of operations. On October 21, 2020, Acamar Partners Acquisition Corp. announced a business combination agreement with CarLotz, Inc., a leading consignment-to-retail used vehicle marketplace. The transaction combined Acamar Partners Acquisition Corp.'s $311 milling cash-in-trust and a $125 million PIPE subscribed by a pool of institutional and strategic investors. CarLotz debuted on Nasdaq on January 22, 2021 under the ticker LOTZ.
