Not surprisingly the SPAC market followed the broader market down today. From a price perspective there was limited movement in pre-deal SPACs given how tightly they tend to trade below $10 these days. 

Foresight Acquisition Corp (FORE) dropped over 10%, closing at $8.85 as it adjourned its meeting until Friday, December 3. 

East Stone Acquisition Corporation (ESSC) surged up over 18%, closing at $12.28 as investors realized it may be the next low-float play. 

Reuters released a report that Digital World Acquisition Corp. (DWAC) is looking to raise a $1B PIPE for its upcoming merger with Trump Media & Technology. The PIPE would be priced at a 20% discount to 10-day VWAP (around $44 now). DWAC is surging in the aftermarket up over 30%. 

Deal Announcements

Two deals were announced today. The Atlantic Coastal Acquisition (ACAH) / Essentium deal popped by about 1.1% but left ACAH trading at $9.89 at the close. Broadscale Acquisition Corp. (SCLE) announced a deal with Voltus and closed the day up under 1% at $9.88.

SPAC Vote Calendar

December is starting to fill up with SPAC merger votes. Wednesday is the ENFA / Buzzfeed vote and then on Thursday DMYQ / Planet will go to vote. Given the downward price pressure this week on DMYQ it will be interesting to watch redemptions. Don't expect many though given dMY's historically low redemption rates.
