American video streaming platform Livestream and Italian oil company Eni are set to list their company NEOA (New Energy One Acquisition) on the London stock exchange (LSE) and raise $230 million to change the course of energy production.
Eni has agreed to finance 17.5 million pounds of the capital increase as the initial public offering (IPO), with the option to grow to 25 million pounds.
NEOA, the Uk’s biggest special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) focusing on the energy transition, is backed by LiveStream and Eni.
A SPAC is a shell business that generates money through an IPO in order to combine with a firm, which then becomes actively listed.
Eni is investing extensively in sustainable industries as it transitions away from oil and gas, having boosted its climate aspirations last year with a pledge to be environmentally safe by 2050.
