It was quite the manic Monday morning for definitive agreements as 5 new deals announced, topped off with an additional deal termination.

✔️ Haymaker Acquisition Corp. III (HYAC) and Biote, $667M
✔️ SVF Investment Corp II (SVFC) and Symbotic, $4.8B
✔️ Global Consumer Acquisition (GCAQ) and GP Global/Luminex, $507M
✔️ Aries I Acquisition Corp. (RAM) and InfiniteWorld, $700M
✔️ AEA-Bridges Impact Corp (IMPX) and LiveWire, $1.8B
❌ SCVX and Bright Machines called off their deal

The big winner of the day may have been Harley-Davidson (HOG) who agreed to divest their EV motorcycle line LiveWire with AEA-Bridges Impact Corp (IMPX). HOG shares surged immediately, eventually giving some gains back but still ending the day up a nice +4.7% on the news. The SPAC shares also fared relatively well on the day with a decent +3.6% pop, while the warrants surged +73% to $1.4. 

Overall, while 5 new DAs for a single day is certainly the highest we have seen in a while, the pace still materially lags the IPO market which has already seen another 29 in December compared 18 DAs and over 560 SPACs looking for deals. 

Elsewhere in SPACs

Yucaipa Acquisition Corporation (YAC) shareholders approved its merger with SIGNA Sports and expects to close tomorrow 12/14 yet the SPAC saw ~92% of its trust ($318M) get redeemed at the vote. Look out for a low-float squeeze.

Americas Technology Acquisition Corp. (ATA) sponsors approved the first of 2 3-month extension options for them to complete a business combination. New interim deadline is now March-17. The sponsor will deposit an additional $1.15M into the trust. 

SCVX Corp. (SCVX) and Bright Machines mutually agreed to terminate their business combination citing low likelihood of deal completion by the SPAC's deadline.
