SPAC Daily: Spring Valley II IPOs

by | Oct 13, 2022

Spring Valley Acquisition Corp. II (SVII) priced a $200M SPAC IPO, in another sign that some seasoned SPAC sponsors aren’t abandoning the product after all. This comes after dMY priced a new vehicle at the end of last month, reinforcing hope that serial SPAC sponsors will stick with the product.

Also of note, Citigroup was a joint bookrunner on this IPO, the first major bank to be involved in a SPAC IPO in some time. In the last several months most SPAC IPOs have been led by EF Hutton.

Spring Valley’s first deSPAC, NuScale Power, is among the highest performing deSPACs, closing up another ~5% today to close at $11.19. You’ll recall the that the majority of DeSPACs are languishing well and far below the typical $10 issue price of the SPAC vehicle. Can Spring Valley II strike another winner?

In addition two new DAs hit the tape:

  • Innovative International Acquisition Corp. (IOAC) is taking ride sharing co Zoomcar public in a $456M deal. Warrants doubled from 4c to 8c
  • Good Works II Acquisition Co. (GWII) announced a pact with Direct Biologics

Elsewhere in SPACs

  • Hunt Companies Acquisition Corp. I (HTAQ) will liquidate 11/1 at $10.16 a share
  • Famed SPAC sponsors Gores withdrew its planned IPO for Gores Holdings X (GTEN)
  • Pine Island Acquisition Corp. (PIPP) will liquidate 10/28 at $10.04 per share
  • OceanTech Acquisitions I Corp. (OTEC) and Captura Biopharma called off their SPAC deal after announcing the pact in August
  • Future Health ESG Corp. (FHLT) terminated its $100M PIPE and $20M FPA
