SPAC Daily: Terminations on the Rise

by | Aug 15, 2022

Call it the dog days of SPAC summer, as August has been nasty for pending SPAC mergers. No surprise that mergers are facing tons of obstacles today from the lack of financing, uncertainty from regulators, and poor equity performance – making going public not entirely attractive at the moment.

Since Friday afternoon, post close, 4 SPAC mergers have been called off, bringing the total to 6 already thus far in August. Tough sledding at the moment, though merger announcements have been on the rise as well. Give and take.
