SPAC Daily: FAZE Drops on Day-1

by | Jul 20, 2022

While the narrative hasn’t steadily improved for SPACs, it’s a good sign to see DeSPACs getting across the finish line, including some of the more high profile names. FaZe Holdings (FAZE) made their public debut today, and Getty Images (GETY) will debut next week. While FAZE fell today (some would say the stock was artificially high), time will ultimately tell on performance.

FAZE stock fell on its ticker change day

There have been just 4 DeSPACs to begin trading in July, and as such is helpful for the market supply to see some more get across the finish line. There are at least 3 more merger votes teed up for July at this point.

Elsewhere in SPACs

  • CC Neuberger Principal Holdings II (PRPB) announced that shareholders approved its Getty Images deal and that the stock will trade as GETY following closing on 7/25
  • Pagaya Technologies (PGY), which despac’ed back in June filed an F-1 which allowed (at long last) to back into its redemption numbers. The numbers make the SPAC one of the lowest floats out there at just over 900k public shares.
  • Fortune Rise Acquisition Corp. (FRLA) and crypto company VCV Technology became the latest SPAC to terminate their previously agreed upon combination. Just recently announced in May, the deal becomes a quick casualty of the so-called “Crypto Winter.” With both SPACs and crypto struggling, it will be tough to get those deals across the line.
  • Bloomberg is reporting that Turkish mobility company Marti is close to announcing an M&A deal with SPAC Galata Acquisition Corp. (GLTA)
  • Patrick Orlando’s Benessere Capital Acquisition Corp. (BENE) reported 3.4M shares redeemed as part of its latest extension vote.
