This guide is intended to provide preliminary guidance to people and entities interested in becoming sponsors of, or otherwise investigating the sponsorship of, one or more SPACs.
In the current market environment, SPAC sponsorship represents an unprecedented opportunity for a qualified sponsor team to access capital and engage in the acquisition of established companies in the sector or sectors in which the sponsor team has expertise and experience.
ClearThink Capital’s experience and expertise in SPACs spans three decades and numerous transactions.
ClearThink and its principals have advised multiple sponsor teams and potential sponsor teams through the labyrinth of decisions, regulations, structures, and professionals, as well as represent target companies in executing their business combinations with SPACs.
One of our principals worked on the first SPAC and negotiated the structure and related rules with the SEC in 1991 and 1992.
