Churchill Set for De-SPAC on July-25
Churchill Capital IV (CCIV), perhaps the epitome of Peak-SPAC, is set to vote on its much anticipated merger with Lucid Motors on July-22, with a shareholder record date of 6/20, and redemption deadline of July-20. However, wouldn't expect many redemptions here with shares trading ~$25.
While CCIV is not at the $60 price we saw in pre-deal mania, $24.85 would be among the highest pre De-SPAC share prices we have seen. And even though though the $2.5B PIPE was priced at a 50% premium to most at $15, those investors are still in the money. Will be interesting to continue to follow this story once LCID begins trading.
ICYMI: Creativity in SPAC Structuring with Spinning Eagle
Creativity continues to abound. Perhaps re-energized by Ackman's Pershing complexity, SPAC veterans of the Eagle Equity line (Jeff Sagansky, Harry Sloan, and Eli Baker) have filed an S-1 for Spinning Eagle Acquisition Co. The SPAC is looking to raise $2B, a huge number. It is structured such that the SPAC can buy a target and "rightsize" the trust, and subsequently spin the remaining trust value into a new SPAC, to go after another company.
The advantage here is to allow easier access for serial SPAC sponsors to go after multiple targets via one SPAC, versus the current methodology of filing multiple separate SPAC vehicles.
They had originally contemplated this structure at the end of last year, but abandoned it, and ultimately priced as Soaring Eagle (SRNG), which is pending a business combination with Ginkgo.
AACQ closed its merger with Origin Materials and will trade as ORGN beginning today.
