SPAC Daily: BRPM / FaZeClan & ITHX / Mondee Deals Approved

by | Jul 15, 2022

It was another relatively quiet day for SPACs with the biggest news being shareholder approval on several deals and some fun trading activity for ITHX. Oh, and DUNE can’t seem to agree with its target TradeZero whether or not their deal has been terminated.

B. Riley Principal 150 Merger Corp (BRPM) officially announced sharedholders approved its business combination with FaZe Clan. It expects to close on July 19 and to start trading as FAZE on July 20 on the Nasdaq.

ITHAX Acquisition Corp. (ITHX) also announced shareholder approvals on their deal with Mondee. It is expected to close on July 18 and will then trade as MOND. The deal included a $70M pipe. ITHX went for a ride during trading hours, surging up 40%, and the ride continued after hours with it trading up 50% as of this writing. The low float lives on.
