Recently special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) have become an increasingly popular option for private companies seeking to access public capital markets. Join us for a discussion where panelists will cover the rapidly developing legal framework for companies considering going public by merging with a SPAC and for SPACs seeking an acquisition target.

Panelists will also discuss the factors contributing to 2022’s slowdown in SPAC activity and the future of the SPAC market.

Topics will include:

  • Financing options for acquirers, including the use of private investment in public equities
  • The process for obtaining shareholder approval for mergers
  • Managing shareholder redemptions, required US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, and the SEC review process
