Bill Ackman's Pershing Square Tontine Holdings confirmed it was in talks with French media conglomerate Vivendi to buy a 10% stake in Universal Music Group in a transaction dubbed a SPARC.
TheStreet's M. Corey Goldman explained, "specifically, a separate entity that will be known as Pershing Square SPARC Holdings will issue rights to acquire common stock for $20 a share to Pershing Square Tontine shareholders, called SPARs, which can only be exercised after the special purpose acquisition rights company reaches an agreement for its initial business combination."
But taking a look past this deal, how can investors do their due diligence when picking a SPAC?
Kenny Polcari, managing partner at Kace Capital Advisors, has some advice.
