Since 2008 the Firm has been one of the leading U.S. law firms involved in each of IPOs, SPACs, Registered Directs/PIPEs and Reverse Mergers. Over the course of the last decade, we have been the most active law firms in the SPAC program, Having worked on nearly 40% of the SPACs during that time period. We continue to be the market leader. Similarly, EGS is considered the leading firm in PIPEs and Registered Directs.
A SPAC is a newly formed corporation by prominent and qualified sponsor/management team for the purpose of raising capital in an IPO in anticipation of identifying and consummating a business combination. A SPAC seeks to leverage the strength and recognition of the management team within an industry or geographic location to secure proprietary deal flow and identify attractive acquisition candidates. It provides public company transparency to investors with full disclosure and voting rights with respect to approving the proposed business combination.
EGS led the SPAC IPO Legal League Tables for both the fourth quarter and Full-Year 2018 (click here to see the league tables) and we have already broken our own record from 2018. EGS has now worked on an incredible 22 SPACs this year (2019) which have raised almost $5bn.
