SPAC Daily: Chamath’s DNAC Adjourns With no Vote

by | Jul 6, 2022

DNAC is the latest in a string of SPACs that appears to be having more trouble than expected in getting across the finish line.

Chamath Palihapitiya’s Social Capital Suvretta Holdings Corp. III (DNAC) was set to vote on its merger with ProKidney but instead adjourned to a later date yet to be named. The delay will give the SPAC and company more time to meet its closing conditions.

There was one new definitive agreement today as HPX Corp. (HPX) announced a $581M transaction for Brazilian Environmental and Industrial Solutions Provider Ambipar Response. The deal includes $168M in way of guaranteed proceeds by way of PIPE commitments and share backstops.
