M&A in Focus: What's next for SPACs?

Thursday, July 29, 2021
60 minutes

2020 was thought to be the year of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), yet SPAC IPO volume in Q1 2021 quickly eclipsed the full-year 2020 tally. In particular, M&A in the tech sector continues to draw a large amount of capital from SPACs. But will this investor activity continue its meteoric growth or fizzle out?

Join our complimentary webinar to discuss the SPAC market with our thought leaders, as they will address:

  • A review of H1 2021 SPAC deal volumes
  • Key trends among specific sectors
  • Drivers of SPAC investment activity
  • The outlook for H2 2021, including potential market saturation and regulatory inquiries
