Introduction to U.S. SPACs

Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) have become wildly popular in the U.S. over the last year, and already in 2021, the value of investments in Asia via SPACs has nearly doubled the amount committed during all of 2020. Join the Hogan Lovells Corporate and Finance practice on Thursday, 15 April 2021 to learn about SPAC transactions, the players involved, the benefits and drawbacks of such transactions, and how Hogan Lovells can support you in cross-border SPAC transactions.

A SPAC is formed to raise money through an initial public offering in order to buy another company (thus taking the target public without the target having to go through the traditional IPO process). The challenge, however, lies in the fact that a SPAC can’t have a specific target company in mind when initially formed, and the SPAC has limited time to acquire a suitable target once created.

In this webinar, we’ll cover the following to get you up to speed on SPACs:

  • General terminology and the parties involved in a SPAC.
  • Typical timelines involved in a SPAC transaction.
  • Economics and deal structures for SPACs.
  • Cross-border considerations for SPACs .
  • Pros and cons of SPACs.

There will be a question-and-answer period and you will be able to submit questions online during the webinar. If you would like to send questions in advance (in Japanese or English), please do so through the registration form.

We very much look forward to your attendance.
