Altitude Acquisition, a blank check company targeting the travel industry, filed on Friday with the SEC to raise up to $300 million in an initial public offering.

The Atlanta, GA-based company plans to raise $300 million by offering 30 million units at $10. Each unit consists of one share of common stock and one-third of a warrant, exercisable at $11.50. At the proposed deal size, Altitude Acquisition would command a market value of $375 million.

The company is led by CEO Gary Teplis, founder and CEO of corporate travel agency Teplis Travel.

The company plans to target travel, travel technology and travel-related businesses with either business-to-business or business-to-consumer focuses.

Altitude Acquisitions was founded in 2020 and plans to list on the Nasdaq under the symbol ALTUU. Cantor Fitzgerald is the sole bookrunner on the deal.
