What is SPAC Listing

SPAC is the abbreviation for “special purpose acquisition companies”. It is a unique form of listing in the US and London capital markets. The SPAC company has cash only and does not need to actually operate in business. It usually acquires a high quality target company within a designated period after listing. In the past 10 years, a total of more than 300 companies have been listed on NASDAQ and NYSE, with financing exceeding 100 billion US dollars.

Compared with traditional IPO listing, what are the advantages of SPAC

Shorter Time

SPAC has completed the listing process of the Securities Regulatory Commission and the exchange in the early stage, which can be completed in about 6 months

Higher Certainty

SPAC merged companies only need to declare for mergers and acquisitions. Compared with the uncertainty of IPO declaration, the success rate is greatly increased.

Lower Cost

SPAC is already a listed company and can raise funds. Consolidated companies can save more than 50% of costs compared to IPO
