SPAC Daily: Chamath’s DNAA Closes with Over 99% Redemptions

by | Aug 19, 2022

Serial SPAC’er, aka “The SPAC King”, Chamath Palihapitiya saw his SPAC, SOCIAL CAPITAL SUVRETTA HOLDINGS CORP I (NASDAQ: DNAA), officially close its deal with Akili Interactive Labs, Inc. today. It expects to trade as AKLI on the Nasdaq starting August 22, 2022. Like most SPACs, Chamath’s saw high redemptions. In this case over 99% of shares. SPAC redemptions, which is a sign of true belief in the deal and post-close financing, remain the issue for the SPAC market. Until redemptions subside, there can’t be any change in the broader market.

DNAA did have an exciting trading today with a spike happening given the low float.

DNAA’s low float created a, somewhat, exciting trading day.

As for Chamath, his sponsor track record isn’t looking much better than others at this point. True believers may continue to “trust the process”, but as of this moment it’s hard to argue that he’s been able to deliver for SPAC shareholders any better than any other sponsors.
