It was a quiet SPAC day Tuesday except for the SPAC mega-merger announcement of Altimeter (AGC) taking Grab public . This is good news as it continues to give the SPAC market time and space it needs to stabilize so that good deals can be found and investors can properly assess and reward / punish those deals.
As the SEC increasingly puts its thumb on the SPAC market scale we'll see some additional friction in the market, but in our opinion, that's good. Investors will want the SPAC market to be one where the rules are well understood, charlatans and scammers are kept out, and quality sponsors, targets, and investors can all make money in a rational market. So, while the latest news on the SEC looking at warrant accounting treatment will cause some headaches and slow the pace some more, it is an overall positive going forward.
In fact, many investors will want to see warrants to be removed from the standard SPAC formula as it contributes to overall value leakage. So, if warrants were removed and sponsor promote becomes tied to longer term de-SPAC targets (like AGC / Brad Gerstner's team did with the Grab deal) you'd likely see additional excitement from SPAC investors.
