Luxembourg, 11 May 2021 – Arendt & Medernach advised 468 SPAC I SE, a Luxembourg special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), on all Luxembourg law aspects of the investment vehicle set-up and subsequent IPO on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange (General Standard). The business combination sought by 468 SPAC I SE is the acquisition of a single existing business in the technology and technology-enabled sectors, with a focus on the sub-sectors marketplaces, direct-to-consumer (D2C) and software & artificial intelligence. The chosen business must have its main operations in a member state of the European Economic Area, the United Kingdom or Switzerland.

With leading expertise in Capital Markets, Corporate, Mergers & Acquisitions and Tax Law, Arendt is best positioned to advise on the structuring and set-up of SPACs in Luxembourg.

468 SPAC I SE is yet another SPAC that has chosen to take advantage of Luxembourg's robust, but still flexible and comprehensive legal and regulatory framework, a key factor in the successful consummation of an international IPO.

468 SPAC I SE is the second SPAC to make its entry on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, after Lakestar SPAC I SE in February 2021, on which Arendt & Medernach also advised.
