Deloitte DBrief – Private companies going public: The rise of the SPAC

February 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

  • This event has passed.
Special-purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) are in vogue today as a way for investors and public companies to mitigate public market volatility and risk. But what risks and opportunities do they pose? We’ll discuss:
•       The history of SPACs and conditions and trends driving 2020’s record-breaking pace of SPAC use.
•       Traditional IPOs vs. SPACs—important differences between the two paths to public, including practical issues and considerations.
•       Lifecycle of a SPAC from inception through merger consummation and as a newly public operating company.
•       Tax considerations of a SPAC target company.
Participants will explore the pros and cons of SPACs and consider factors that could help them decide if a SPAC is a viable exit strategy.
