To mitigate the risks associated with redemptions, as well as to provide additional capital for the continuing public company, most de-SPAC transactions are now accompanied by a PIPE transaction.  Marketing the PIPE transaction to potential investors alongside the de-SPACing also may be part of the overall investor outreach.  As an alternative to a PIPE transaction, other financing alternatives include forward purchase transactions and private placements with the SPAC sponsor affiliates.  

Panelists from Hennessy Capital Acquisition Corp., ICR, Stifel and Mayer Brown will discuss:

  • The SPAC IPO market, announced notable de-SPAC transactions, and the M&A pipeline
  • The de-SPAC process
  • Coordinating a financing in conjunction with the de-SPACing process
  • PIPE transactions in connection with SPACs and market trends
  • Special structuring and legal considerations 
  • Documentation and timing issues
  • Alternatives to PIPE transactions
