Louis Lehot will be a panelist at the Shifting Sands: Market Transformation & the Future of SPACs session at the Inaugural West Coast M&A/Private Equity Forum hosted by Thomson Reuters.
According to industry reports, 2021 saw Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) gain significant traction among investors, with a record 613 listings raising $145 billion in an altogether impressive year. Indeed, despite a chill in the private investment in public equity (PIPE) market and several regulatory setbacks, early returns on SPAC performance fuel optimism for a similarly robust 2022—even if this largely nascent asset class must continue to adapt. This discussion examines the outlook of SPAC activity today. Join Louis and his fellow panelist will discuss the outlook of SPAC activity today and debate if momentum will persist despite looming legislative, legal, or market-wide storm clouds ahead.
The Inaugural West Coast M&A/Private Equity Forum is the premier gathering of mid-market deals professionals throughout the region. The Forum imparts timely advice on current trends and developments impacting deals in the current calendar year.
