As we started to see last week, redemptions are on the rise for near/sub-NAV SPACs. Today, we saw another large (albeit from a much larger base) redemption count. While Thoma Bravo Advantage (TBA) shareholders approved its deal with ironSource, it came with over 18M shares, or > $180M cash, submitted for redemption. That number represents ~18% of TBA's trust. 

Given that redemptions were > $150M, Thoma Bravo invested an additional $32.5M into ironSource, with identical terms to existing PIPE investors. As a reminder, a $1.3B PIPE had been included in the original merger terms for their deal with ironSource. Closing is expected next week. TBA closed slightly up at $9.98. It will trade as IS starting 6/29. 

On the flipside, Fintech Acquisition Corp IV (FTIV) passed its shareholder vote for its merger with Perella Weinberg - and reported 0 shareholder redemptions. Though, not surprising, given FTIV has been steadily above $10 for some time rendering any redemptions not economical.
