A successful listing of a SPAC IPO is just the beginning of the process. SPACs typically have 24 months post-IPO to complete a successful business combination. After a target acquisition has been identified and a deal negotiated, the “de-SPAC” process begins. To be successful, SPACs need an experienced team of advisors that understands the de-SPAC process, the industry of the target business, the challenges related to announcing an acquisition and communicating to all your constituents (SPAC shareholders, sector focused institutional investors, employees, key business partners, the media, etc.), and the shareholder vote process.
