Initial Public Offering of a Special-Purpose Acquisition Company

In short

The underwriter introduces the SPAC and its managment team to institutional investors during a roadshow prior to an IPO. During the Initial Public Offering, the SPAC will raise money and then place the raised funds in a trust account.

Preparing to go public

Preparing the IPO is a task where a reliable and vivid communication has to be orchestered between the involved parties.

Most management teams have little or no experience with the details about going public with a company. We recommend leading advisors and servicing companies in the SPAC segment of an IPO as well as adding our experience. Further, we secure the communication between all involved parties.

Production Planning

The underwriter introduces the SPAC and its managment team to institutional investors during a roadshow prior to an IPO.

The main task is of course to raise the targeted IPO funds from institutional investors.

Besides this, the underwriting investment bank

  • conduct test the waters meetings with key investors

  • conduct a full roadshow focused on US and European key accounts

  • structure the order book to ensure the best possible trading outcome for the IPO

  • help stabilize the stock price after IPO

IPO & the Stock Exchange

Going public at Nasdaq, NYSE or Euronext

Since 2010, Nasdaq has been the exchange of choice for SPACs, attracting over 75% of all SPAC IPOs. Its position as the industry leader supports SPACs and target private companies in making a seamless transition to the public markets.

Other SPACs have gone public at NYSE but there where also some European SPAC IPOs at Euronext.

Although the general IPO process of a SPAC is very standardized, the details are important in individual cases. It is important to have specialized lawyers, a successful investment bank and experienced consultants at your side.
