It’s been a rather quiet going in SPAC land amidst a very nasty broader equity market (save for extension votes of course). Today the “highlight” saw two new definitive agreements hit the tape, one in the morning and one post close.
- Consumer Direct Holdings is going public via DTRT Health Acquisition (DTRT) in a $681M EV deal that includes $150M of debt financing
- YS Biopharma, a Chinese rabies vaccine company, struck a deal with Summit Healthcare Acquisition Corp. (SMIH)
That brings us to 6 new DAs on the week, which is almost shocking considering the tumult in equities. Issuance is still quiet for a few weeks now, though rumor has it two SPACs will be pricing tonight including one from SPAC veterans dMY. So look out for that.
