SPAC 101 – Is 2021 the Year of SPAC in Asia?

28 Jan 2021 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. HKT

Funds raised via Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”) have reached a record US$70 billion in 2020, a remarkable fivefold increase from the year before. Will Asia-based investors join the SPAC wave that swept the U.S. in 2020? Could 2021 be the year of the SPAC in Asia?

Join us at this webinar, where MoFo partners Mitchell S. Presser, Justin R. Salon, and Ruomu Li will lead an in-depth discussion on the growing significance of SPACs and their relevance to the Asian market.

Specifically, the following topics will be explored:

  • What is a SPAC and how to form a SPAC
  • Comparison between a traditional IPO and a SPAC transaction
  • Why is a SPAC relevant to Asian companies and may be the top choice for U.S. IPOs and M&As

HK CPD and NY CLE / CA MCLE credits are pending for this webinar.
