Acquisitions and name changes[edit]

Gerova was previously named Asia Special Situations Acquisition Corporation. The name was changed in February 2010.[1]

As Asia Special Situations Acquisition Corporation, the company attempted to acquire White Energy, an Australian coal mining firm, in 2009.[2] However, that deal did not occur.[3]

On December 7, 2010, Gerova announced agreements, subject to approval, to acquire Seymour Pierce, a small London investment bank and Ticonderoga Securities, a New York securities broker.[4] If the transactions close, Gerova would use the Seymour Pierce name.
