Cohn Robbins Holdings Corp.

About Us

Cohn Robbins Holdings Corp. (NYSE: CRHC.U) is a blank check company founded for the purpose of effecting a merger, share exchange, asset acquisition, share purchase, reorganization or similar business combination with one or more businesses or entities. We intend to capitalize on the approximately 70 years of combined experience of our founders, Gary D. Cohn and Clifton S. Robbins, in investing and managing capital across markets and industries, structuring transactions, and building businesses, and on their respective and complementary vast and unique global networks of relationships to source and diligence transaction opportunities and add post-transaction value. While we may pursue an acquisition in any business industry or sector, we believe there are attractive trends in several industries where our founders have particular expertise, including consumer and, within the technology sector, software and fintech. We intend to target large, private equity and venture capital-owned assets, founder-led businesses and corporate carve-outs where our insights, expertise and networks can provide advantaged solutions to create value, including through add-on acquisitions, governance enhancements, capital structure optimization, improvements to operations and risk management (including material environmental, social and governance, or “ESG”, practices and metrics) and attracting and expanding institutional following and ownership.

We believe a potential target will benefit from our founders’:

  • common vision for investing in and building world class businesses, which they have developed over the course of their longstanding personal and professional relationship;
  • experience managing and improving public and private companies and working with entrepreneurs and management teams on a collaborative basis; and
  • combined networks of relationships among leaders of private equity, venture capital and growth equity firms, entrepreneurs, corporate officers, operations executives, board members, family office principals, investment bankers, institutional investors and policy makers.

Mr. Cohn’s broad experience - on Wall Street building, operating, managing and strategically positioning large, complex, highly regulated and global businesses at the intersections of financial markets, technology and relationship development; in Silicon Valley investing in and advising leading-edge privately-held technology companies; and in Washington, D.C. leading U.S. economic policy – is highly complementary to Mr. Robbins’ focus throughout his career on private equity and long-term, actively-engaged public market investing, including identifying, structuring, consummating and adding post-investment value over a multi-year timeframe to investments as a partner of pre-eminent private equity and growth equity firms, and as the founder of a pioneering, multi-billion dollar public market investment firm specializing in companies of the size our company will target.

Our company is further supported by a group of distinguished and accomplished Independent Board Members who collectively bring a diverse range of business acumen and sector expertise. Cohn Robbins Holdings Corp.’s Independent Board Members are Kathryn A. Hall, C. Robert Kidder, Alex T. Robertson and Anne Sheehan. To navigate to their biographies, please click here.
