SPAC Daily: AMAO Strikes Royalty Management Deal

by | Jun 28, 2022

AMAO, with just $16M left, announced a post close business DA.

American Acquisition Opportunity Inc. (AMAO) provided some late afternoon fireworks in announcing a $111M EV SPAC deal for Royalty Management Corporation. No PIPE or financing was announced along with the deal and the company expects up to $16M in proceeds in a no redemption scenario. AMAO, has already been heavily redeemed at prior extension votes.

While it’s welcoming to see some deal activity, the pace is not near where it needs to be to efficiently clear the 590 SPACs out there searching for deals. And while DeSPAC performance may be down, lest us not forget that the poor performance is also being felt both in the broader stock market but also in traditional IPOs. As Bloomberg pointed out the latest IPO fell over 12% initially in the biggest listing since May.

IPO volume is down across the board. 2020 and 2021 were record years thanks to SPACs

DeSPACs are ticking up in the last few months, and looks like that will be the case moving forward with a slew of merger votes on the horizon. Lots to be looking out for. See below for the latest SPAC calendar, and look out for the end of this week as we’ll be releasing our June 2022 SPAC market review.
