Private Company Priorities 2021 Webinar Series: Can the SPAC Boom Last?

1 CPE Credit

FEI’s Private Companies Priorities is a series of discussions that are laser-focused on topics of interest to private company executives. Each webinar is programmed with the help of leaders in one of FEI’s Committee on Private Companies Special Interest Groups and provides deep insight on critical areas of private company operations and administration. These include family business and succession planning, access to capital and M&A, and public policy and accounting issues affecting private companies. In eight webinars held over the first half of 2021, subject matter experts and key stakeholders will provide valuable insights on topics including the outlook for private company M&A, the psychology of family businesses, how to operate a private company after the pandemic, the tax outlook for private companies and an exploration of special purpose acquisition companies (SPAC). Each one-hour webinar is offered at no cost to FEI members and will offer CPE credit to attendees.

Session 6: Can the SPAC Boom Last?
Presented by FEI’s Access to Capital and M&A Special Interest Group
Special purpose acquisition companies (“SPACs”) are the hottest capital phenomenon of the past year. In 2020, almost 250 SPAC IPOs raised $83 billion, up from 59 SPAC IPOs that raised approximately $14 billion in 2019. Through February 2021, 228 SPAC IPOs have raised $73 billion. However, a private company going public through a SPAC transaction comes with its own set of challenges.  This session will discuss conditions and trends driving the momentum of SPACs, an overview of the lifecycle of a SPAC, a survey of the core competencies that should be examined and elevated after a target company is acquired, and an overview of regulatory requirements.
