The current state of SPACs isn't exhibiting any signs of reversing to a more positive tone. De-SPAC companies are slashing guidance, investors are redeeming very high portions of SPAC trusts, and pre-deal SPACs are near their lowest levels ever (~$9.75 on average). 

Yet, the train goes on for the SPACs that are in the market and have deals announced. 8 SPACs are voting this week and don't be surprised to see a handful of IPOs hit the tape. 

GRNV / Helbiz demonstrates de-SPAC Volatility 

While shorting De-SPACs might be the play, GreenVision Acquisition Corp (GRNV) exhibited wild volatility on Friday as it closed its merger with Italian e-scooter company Helbiz. GRNV shares jumped over 200% at its peak before ultimately settling in at nearly $13, much higher than the ~$8 it was trading at prior to Friday. Much of the volatility can be attributed to its, now tiny, float. 

GRNV

It's not the sort of price action you'd expect from a SPAC who experienced 95% in redemptions from its SPAC trust and was issued an automatic de-listing notice from NASDAQ. GRNV will began trading as HLBZ today - and subsequently dropped over 15% to close at $10.92. 

Silver Crest Strikes deal with Tim Hortons China

Silver Crest Acquisition (SLCR) struck a $1.79B deal to take the China arm of the popular Canadian coffee shop Tim Hortons public. The deal does not include a PIPE and is expected to close in Q4 2021, and was largely panned in fintwit for its valuation.

SLCR barely nudged up to close at $9.80, signaling another likely high redemption situation unless the story changes drastically.

SPAC Votes + Redemptions

Another 8 SPACs are set to vote this week following 8 SPACs that had their day last week. Tailwind Acquisition (TWND) is hoping the 3rd time is a charm having previously adjourned their shareholder meeting twice - that is set for tomorrow 8/17. 

CF Finance Acquisition Corp III (CFAC) announced that it has closed its merger with AEye and will trade as LIDR beginning 8/18. They also finally reported redemption figures as a total of $193M was redeemed from the trust or ~84% of its total. CFAC fell again today and is trading as $8.58. 

RMG Acquisition Corporation II (RMGB) announces stockholder approval  combination with ReNew Power, and along with that reported over $230M in redemptions, representing 68% of the SPAC trust. It will trade as RNW on 8/24.
