In one of the most perplexing stories in SPAC land right now, the warrantless IPO from last week of MELI Kaszek Pioneer Corp (MEKA) continues to trade at a huge (for today's world) premium, closing up another +4.2% today to close at $12.56.
Sponsored by Mercado Libre and focused on Latin America, MEKA now trades at over a 25% premium to its offer price and does not have any warrants or an overfunded trust. Compare that to the average Pre-Deal SPAC of $9.82, and MEKA is a unicorn in the Pre-Deal SPAC universe. Congrats.
FMAC and Starry in a $1.66B EV SPAC Deal
FirstMark Horizon Acquisition Corp (FMAC) announced a $1.6B deal to take broadband company Starry public via its SPAC. The deal financing includes a $130M PIPE with participation from the likes of ArrowMark Partners, Atreides, Fidelity, and Tiger Global. In addition, the company touts that 75% of founder shares are subject to either earnout or lockup provisions.
This is the first SPAC deal for FirstMark who has two other SPACs on file, but yet to price their IPOs. FMAC rose +0.9% on the news to close near NAV at $9.90.
Other SPAC News
Live Oak Acquisition Corp. II (LOKB) and Navitas Semiconductor announced $18M in additional PIPE financing, plus a $30M FPA from Atalaya Capital ahead of their merger vote upcoming on 10/12. LOKB is hovering around NAV closing at $9.95 today.
LifeSci Acquisition II Corp (LSAQ) and Science 37 (SNCE) closed their business combination and began trading as SNCE. The company notes "$235M" of proceeds which would indicate ~16% redemptions, but we'll wait for the official numbers.
