Hosted By International Finance Review
Intervenants

Hosted by International Financing Review (IFR), the 2021 US ECM Roundtable brings together a panel of senior industry professionals to evaluate the current state of play within the market.

The Roundtable, SPACs at a Crossroads, will be moderated by IFR’s US Editor, Stephen Lacey. Panelists will examine:

  • How have SPAC IPO terms changed over time? What are the implications of “Bring Your Own Buyer” and back-end funding/redemptions for a merger?
  • Where does the SEC stand on its new accounting treatment for SPAC warrants? Is the accounting treatment fair? What are the implications, if any, on SPAC funding?
  • What are the plaintiffs alleging in the recent spate of lawsuits against certain SPACs? Is there merit to their claims? If the litigants prevail, what will the implications be?
  • Why are SPAC investors redeeming and how frequently? Is there precedent for PIPE investors to backtrack on commitments?

Panelists include:

  • Amanda Abrams, FinTech Masala
  • Craig DeDomenico, Stifel, Nicolaus & Co.
  • Don Duffy, ICR Strategic Communications & Advisory
  • Matthew Perkal, Brigade Capital Management
  • Anna Pinedo, Mayer Brown
  • Eric Roddy, William Blair & Co.
