SPAC Daily: Cano Health (CANO) Surges on Sale Rumors

by | Sep 22, 2022

It’s been no secret that De-SPACs have gotten hammered (albeit along with the broader market). However these depressed valuations has led to much speculation that beaten down DeSPACs may eventually become attractive targets for PE or strategics.

Today Cano Health (CANO), who DeSPAC’ed in June 2021 via a Sternlicht SPAC, surged on rumors that both Humana (HUM) and CVS (CVS) were potentially in serious talks to scoop up the healthcare provider. CANO shares rocketed +32% to close at $8.34. Cano Health, which went public at a ~$4.4B EV, is trading at around a $4B market cap. Keep an eye out for more of these situations down the line.
