How SPACs Are Changing the IPO and M&A Markets
Wednesday, July 22, 2020
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.
