NEW YORK – March 9, 2021 – Ambulnz, Inc., to be renamed DocGo, Inc. (“DocGo” or the “Company”), a leading provider of last-mile telehealth and integrated medical mobility services, and Motion Acquisition Corp. (Nasdaq: MOTN) (“Motion”), a publicly traded special purpose acquisition company, announced today that they have entered into a definitive agreement for a business combination. Upon closing of the transaction, DocGo is expected to be listed on Nasdaq under the new ticker symbol “DCGO”.
The Company generated preliminary 2020 revenue of $94 million, nearly double 2019 revenue of $48 million. The Company expects 2021 revenue of more than $155 million and anticipates continued growth for the remainder of the year. Revenue for 2022 is currently forecasted to exceed $265 million.
DocGo’s management team, led by co-founder and CEO Stan Vashovsky, will continue to lead the combined Company, and Motion’s CEO and Director, Michael Burdiek, will join the Company’s board of directors upon completion of the transaction.
Stan Vashovsky, co-founder and CEO of DocGo, said:
“DocGo was built to bring a digital-first approach to last-mile telehealth and integrated medical mobility services that bridge the gap between physical and virtual care. The unique combination of our proprietary technology platform and care logistics expertise, along with our highly trained and motivated base of dedicated field professionals, has led to increased satisfaction and improved outcomes for patients as well as to superior service and lower cost for providers and payers. We are taking traditional healthcare beyond the walls of hospitals and clinics and offering in-home healthcare services at affordable price points to the broader community. We believe our rebranding to DocGo is representative of our mission. We are excited to partner with Motion and our new investors to realize DocGo’s full potential as a public company.”
Michael Burdiek, CEO and Director of Motion Acquisition Corp., said:
“Motion has been seeking to partner with a vertical market leader at the intersection of mobility and technology. With a highly experienced management team, best-in-class partners, proprietary technology, and an innovative, scalable business model, we believe DocGo represents a tremendous opportunity in a large and attractive market. DocGo has a proven growth strategy and profitable CapEx-light business model, and the Company is now aggressively expanding its geographic footprint to service the contracted demand from its anchor customers. We look forward to working with Stan and the entire DocGo team to help bring enhanced healthcare mobility services to the comfort of patients’ homes across a rapidly expanding geographic footprint.”
The business combination values the combined Company at an approximately $1.1 billion pro forma equity value and will result in approximately $225 million of cash on the company’s balance sheet, assuming no redemptions by Motion’s public stockholders, including a $125 million fully committed common stock PIPE at $10.00 per share.
The boards of directors of DocGo and Motion have unanimously approved the proposed business combination, which is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2021, subject to, among other things, the approval by Motion’s and DocGo’s stockholders of the business combination, the closing of the concurrent PIPE transaction, and the satisfaction or waiver of other customary closing conditions. Stockholders of DocGo holding a sufficient number of shares to approve the business combination have executed support agreements to vote in favor of the business combination.

Certain statements included in this press release are not historical facts but are forward-looking statements for purposes of the safe harbor provisions under the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements generally are accompanied by words such as “believe,” “may,” “will,” “estimate,” “continue,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “expect,” “should,” “would,” “plan,” “predict,” “potential,” “seem,” “seek,” “future,” “outlook,” and similar expressions that predict or indicate future events or trends or that are not statements of historical matters, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding estimates and forecasts of other financial and performance metrics and projections of market opportunity.
These statements are based on various assumptions, whether or not identified in this press release, and on the current expectations of DocGo’s management and are not predictions of actual performance. These forward-looking statements are provided for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to serve as, and must not be relied on by any investor as, a guarantee, an assurance, a prediction or a definitive statement of fact or probability. Actual events and circumstances are difficult or impossible to predict and will differ from assumptions. Many actual events and circumstances are beyond the control of DocGo and Motion. Some important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in any forward-looking statements could include changes in domestic and foreign business, market, financial, political and legal conditions. Further, these forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including: the conditions to the completion of the merger, including the required approval by Motion’s stockholders, may not be satisfied on the terms expected or on the anticipated schedule; the parties’ ability to meet expectations regarding the timing and completion of the merger; the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstance that could give rise to the termination of the merger agreement; the approval by Motion’s stockholders of an amendment to Motion’s organizational documents to extend the date by which Motion must complete its initial business combination in order to have adequate time to close the proposed transaction; the outcome of any legal proceedings that may be instituted against Motion related to the merger or the merger agreement; and the amount of the costs, fees, expenses and other charges related to the merger; the risk that any required regulatory approvals are not obtained, are delayed or are subject to unanticipated conditions that could adversely affect the combined company or the expected benefits of the proposed business combination; failure to realize the anticipated benefits of the proposed business combination; risks relating to the uncertainty of the projected financial information with respect to DocGo; DocGo’s ability to successfully expand its service offerings; competition; the uncertain effects of the COVID-19 pandemic; and those factors discussed in the registration statement, proxy statement/prospectus, and other documents filed, or to be filed, by Motion with SEC. If any of these risks materialize or our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results could differ materially from the results implied by these forward-looking statements. There may be additional risks that neither DocGo nor Motion presently know or that DocGo and Motion currently believe are immaterial that could also cause actual results to differ from those contained in the forward-looking statements.
In addition, forward-looking statements reflect DocGo’s and Motion’s expectations, plans or forecasts of future events and views as of the date of this press release. DocGo and Motion anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause DocGo’s and Motion’s assessments to change. However, while DocGo and Motion may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, DocGo and Motion specifically disclaim any obligation to do so. These forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as representing DocGo’s and Motion’s assessments as of any date subsequent to the date of this press release. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed upon the forward-looking statements.
Any financial projections in this press release are forward-looking statements that are based on assumptions that are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond DocGo’s and Motion’s control. While all projections are necessarily speculative, DocGo and Motion believe that the preparation of prospective financial information involves increasingly higher levels of uncertainty the further out the projection extends from the date of preparation. The assumptions and estimates underlying the projected results are inherently uncertain and are subject to a wide variety of significant business, economic and competitive risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in the projections. The inclusion of projections in this press release should not be regarded as an indication that DocGo and Motion, or their respective representatives and advisors, considered or consider the projections to be a reliable prediction of future events.
