As the Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) boom continues against the backdrop of the evolving U.S. SEC guidance, sponsors, investors, and potential SPAC targets are wondering what’s next for SPACs and what are the opportunities and challenges.

Join us for a webinar at which our MoFo global SPAC experts, Mitchell S. Presser, Justin R. Salon, Michael D. Birnbaum, Marcia Ellis and Ruomu Li, along with our guest speaker David Sultan of Fir Tree Partners, will provide an overview of the current SPAC market and share their views on the future development of SPACs, including:

  • Market Updates – Current trends in relation to SPAC IPOs, SPAC-related PIPEs, and de-SPAC transactions. When will the IPO market re-open? What are the PIPE investors looking for? Are merger terms changing?
  • New SEC Guidance – What will the SEC’s latest statements mean for SPACs and de-SPAC transactions and what more should we expect from the SEC on SPACs in 2021?
  • SPAC-Related Shareholder Litigation – What can we learn from the recent complaints filed and settlements reached?
  • Asia-Based SPACs – Will Singapore and/or Hong Kong establish SPAC listing regimes to compete with the U.S. markets?
