A Privately Speaking podcast from KPMG Private Enterprise
SPACs are back in a big way. In fact, many well-known companies (including Jamba Juice and American Apparel) were acquired in deals involving special-purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) and selling to a SPAC company can be quick and lucrative—if you know the risks, complexities and tradeoffs.
In this podcast, KPMG Audit partner and host Erika Whitmore sits down with Jeff Thomas, Senior Vice President of Nasdaq's Listings and Capital Markets, and Gus Garcia, Head of SPAC M&A for Bank of America, to discuss:
- the renaissance in SPAC issuance
- what the ideal SPAC candidate looks like and the four big benefits they can expect
- a 360-degree view of how to prepare for a SPAC transaction
- what to be aware of after a deal closes.
