What is a De-SPAC?

It is a company that comes public as a result of a merger with a SPAC. “SPAC” stands for Special Purpose Acquisition Company. Often referred to as a “blank check company”, it is a listed acquisition vehicle that raises money to buy a private operating company.

Why are more companies choosing to go public via SPACs in recent years?

For sponsors, SPACs provide a structural flexibility that offers a competitive advantage vs. the typical IPO process. There is minimum upfront capital outlay and a faster time to market vs. a traditional IPO.
