Mayer Brown is proud to sponsor this year’s 2021 US ECM Roundtable, hosted by the International Financing Review (IFR). This year’s virtual event brings together a panel of senior industry professionals to evaluate the current state of play within the market.

The Roundtable, SPACs at a Crossroads, will be moderated by IFR’s US Editor, Stephen Lacey. Panelists will examine questions including:

  • How have SPAC IPO terms changed over time? What are the implications of “Bring Your Own Buyer” and back-end funding/redemptions for a merger?
  • Where does the SEC stand on its new accounting treatment for SPAC warrants? Is the accounting treatment fair? What are the implications, if any, on SPAC funding?
  • What are the plaintiffs alleging in the recent spate of lawsuits against certain SPACs? Is there merit to their claims? If the litigants prevail, what will the implications be?
  • Why are SPAC investors redeeming and how frequently? Is there precedent for PIPE investors to backtrack on commitments?
