SPAC Daily: DWAC Adjourns Again

by | Oct 10, 2022

Markets may have been open today, but with the SEC being closed (Indigenous Peoples’ Day), filing activity was at a halt in the SPAC market. That didn’t stop CFFE from announcing a deal (XELA European business) and Digital World Acquisition (DWAC) continuing its saga of trying to beg shareholders to approve its extension.

DWAC was set to vote today (again) on an extension for its Trump Media and Technology deal, and had to adjourn AGAIN, this time out till November 3. With a record date back in August, it’s continuously proving quite difficult for the sponsors to garner enough votes. DWAC common and warrants continue to dive as time goes on, and the warrants closed at just $3.42 after trading near $30 earlier this year.

DWAC warrants are diving

That being said, DWAC remains the highest premium pre-close SPAC out there, yet markets are starting to doubt now more than ever whether or not the deal will ultimately close.

We recap the day’s news in SPACs below.
