How SPACs Are Changing the IPO and M&A Markets

Date: Wednesday, July 22, 2020
Time: 10:00am-11:00am
Location: Virtual


In cooperation with:
  

SPACs or “blank check acquisition companies” have greatly impacted the 2020 IPO market because they are less linked to market timing and the capital raised is put in a trust account pending an acquisition or merger by the SPAC. SPACs have accounted for approximately 40% of US IPO filings and raised over $6.5 billion during 2020. Our panel will explore the changing dynamics of SPACs, their influence on capital and M&A markets, and how SPACs are viewed from Wall Street and Silicon Valley.

 

More information for this event will be posted soon.
