It was a tough day overall for SPACs (see biggest gainers / losers below), and as usually is the case, those SPACs with announced deals saw the biggest moves. DWAC -- the Donald Trump / Patrick Orland SPAC -- took the biggest hit today dropping 12.4% to $44.85. The biggest risk here remains the fact that it is a SPAC built entirely on air with no real substance beneath it. Could it one day become a real business? Maybe, but until then anyone holding it at prices well above NAV are taking a big risk.
On a related note, both to the risk and the DWAC SPAC, Patrick Orlando's Yunhong International Co. (ZGYH) Friday announced its dissolution and liquidation, redeeming public shares at $10.31.
For those holding the common, this isn't too big a deal as it will redeem over NAV. However, for those holding warrants in a material amount, it is a big deal. On Friday the warrants closed at $0.59 before falling precipitously and then not trading on Monday.
Many had looked to ZGYH as a sympathy play alongside DWAC, but for those keeping track, there should have been concerns given ZGYH had previously failed to complete a merger and the sponsor group had never completed a SPAC. For more, you can see our original note when DWAC first announced.
Also today CHP Merger Corp (CHPM) announced that it adjourned its meeting and will hold a new vote on November 24th to extend their business combination deadline.
In the category of "top sponsors", Betsy Cohen filed for yet another SPAC. FTAC Emerald will be a $220M SPAC with 1/2 warrant and $10.10 trust. This continues the trend of SPACs offering sweeter initial terms.
No new deals announced today, and to date, there have been 15 mergers announced so far in November. None have resulted in significant gains as on average the continue to hover around NAV. Overall, only a handful are much above $10 with DWAC at the top end. Of those above $11 there are usually good stories alongside them. For example, GGPI at $13.94 is being pulled up by the EV craze (though most got hit today) as is DCRC which is taking Solid Power public, DMYQ is benefitting from IONQ's performance and sponsor Niccolo de Massi's full court press. Whether the narratives behind the outperformance are lasting is yet to be seen.
