SPAC Daily: Second DA for Tailwind Acquisition (TWND)

by | Aug 8, 2022

Tailwind Acquisition Corp (TWND) kicked off the week by announcing a new definitive agreement with blue laser company NUBURU in a transaction valued at $350M. The deal does not include a PIPE but a commitment of up to $100M in additional financing from Lincoln Park Capital following close. In addition, the SPAC is incentivizing shareholders not to redeem by offering each non-redeeming shareholder an unlisted (senior) preferred share for each share not redeemed.

This is the second time around for Tailwind Acquisition Co., who previously cancelled a $1.4B business combination with risk analytics company QOMPLX. TWND is chaired by former Casper Sleep CEO Philip Krim.
