SPACs: Special Purpose Acquisition Corporations

A SPAC is a newly formed corporation by a prominent and qualified sponsor/management team for the purpose of raising capital in an IPO in anticipation of identifying and consummating a business combination.

For the last five years, EG&S's SPAC Practice Group which includes both our Capital Markets and M&A lawyers has been the most active Firm in the U.S.  Over the course of the last couple of years, EG&S has been involved in nearly 30% of all SPAC IPOs, either as issuer's or underwriter's counsel.  During the last 15 years, members of the Firm have been involved with over 150 blind pool/SPACs and 50 SPAC Acquisitions with collective enterprise values in the billions of dollars.
