Spinning Eagle Returns

Creativity continues to abound. Perhaps re-energized by Ackman's Pershing complexity, SPAC veterans of the Eagle Equity line (Jeff Sagansky, Harry Sloan, and Eli Baker) have filed an S-1 for Spinning Eagle Acquisition Co. The SPAC is looking to raise $2B, a huge number. It is structured such that the SPAC can buy a target and "rightsize" the trust, and subsequently spin the remaining trust value into a new SPAC, to go after another company. 

The advantage here is to allow easier access for serial SPAC sponsors to go after multiple targets via one SPAC, versus the current methodology of filing multiple separate SPAC vehicles. 

They had originally contemplated this structure at the end of last year, but abandoned it, and ultimately priced as Soaring Eagle (SRNG), which is pending a business combination with Ginkgo.

890 5th Avenue Partners (ENFA) struck a $1.5B EV deal to take online media company BuzzFeed public. BuzzFeed will be buying Complex Networks as part of the proposed transaction. ENFA rose slightly on the day to close at $9.87.
