SPAC Daily: OPAL Fuels & ACTD Close Deal

by | Jul 21, 2022

Maybe it’s the dog days of summer, or a continuation of the weaker equity market, but times are slow in SPACs. Aside from the barrage of extensions (see calendar) and occasional DA, market activity is very slow. There hasn’t been a SPAC IPO since June, and we’re only hearing of a handful in the pipeline.

While there have been a few DAs, the old excitement (volume, chatter) is missing. Can always chalk it up to “nobody’s in their seats” though, it feels more sentiment based. That being said, all is not dead and activity still creeps about. So, stay tuned. We rundown the (slow) news day.

Elsewhere in SPACs

  • ArcLight Clean Transition Corp. II (ACTD) and OPAL Fuels closed their SPAC deal with shares set to trade as OPAL tomorrow
  • The second (though first named) of Chamath’s Social Capital Suvretta Line, DNAA, filed its definitive proxy for the Akili Interative deal, and the vote is set for 8/18
  • Last night, Larkspur Health Acquisition Corp. (LSPR) officially announced a tie-up with Zyversa Therapeutics at a $109M EV
