The use of Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) as an alternative to the traditional IPO process has become enormously popular with companies seeking to go public. It is an avenue that has dominated the marketplace, in large part due to its efficiency and cost-saving benefits. However, consequent to its rapid growth are stricter legal and regulatory probes from the SEC as well as other risk issues including negotiation time constraints and conflicts of interest that could create several threats of litigation.
