The boom in SPAC IPOs has left hundreds of newly-public buyers flush with cash and chasing De-SPAC mergers before the clock strikes midnight. Competition with private equity and other buyers for quality targets is intense, but the chase for De-SPAC deals has been made even more challenging by a regulatory environment that is increasingly hostile to SPACs. What are the key issues that SPACs need to address in order to successfully navigate the challenges of today's De-SPAC transactions? Join us for insights from our panel of experts:

  • Erin Cahill, Partner, PwC
  • Bill Demers, CFO, POINT BioPharma
  • Reid Hooper, Senior Counsel, Cooley LLP
  • Jay Knight, Partner, Bass Berry & Sims LLP

This program will cover:

  • Overview of the Current Environment for SPAC Deals
  • Negotiating Key Deal Terms/Addressing Target Concerns
  • The PIPE Market and Alternative Financing Methods
  • Target Preparations To Go Public Through a SPAC
  • Managing the Financing and Shareholder Approval Process
