Private Company Priorities 2021 Webinar Series: Can the SPAC Boom Last?


FEI’s Private Companies Priorities is a series of discussions that are laser-focused on topics of interest to private company executives. Each webinar is programmed with the help of leaders in one of FEI’s Committee on Private Companies Special Interest Groups and provides deep insight on critical areas of private company operations and administration. These include family business and succession planning, access to capital and M&A, and public policy and accounting issues affecting private companies. In eight webinars held over the first half of 2021, subject matter experts and key stakeholders will provide valuable insights on topics including the outlook for private company M&A, the psychology of family businesses, how to operate a private company after the pandemic, the tax outlook for private companies and an exploration of special purpose acquisition companies (SPAC). Each one-hour webinar is offered at no cost to FEI members and will offer CPE credit to attendees.

Session 6: Can the SPAC Boom Last?
Presented by FEI’s Access to Capital and M&A Special Interest Group
Special purpose acquisition companies are the hottest capital phenomenon of the past year. In 2020 more than 200 SPAC IPOs have raised $69 billion, up from 59 SPAC IPOs that raised $14 billion last year. But market and regulatory changes, along with investor interest, is quickly changing. This session will discuss the expectation for companies already wrapped up in a SPAC and financial executives looking to navigate the structures for their own companies.
