Capturing the booming SPACs market - a primer for Asian GPs and LPs

In the past year, special purpose acquisition companies (“SPACs”) have raised over $82 billion in capital- more than the last 10 years combined. Whilst the US accounts for the majority of SPACs activity, Asia has been hailed as the next hot spot for takeover targets and de-SPACs. The private equity and venture capital industry has also embraced SPACs as part of their investment toolkits, with the number of PE-sponsored SPACs on the rise in Asia.

Against this compelling backdrop, this webinar aims to provide industry players with an update of the key trends and best practices in SPAC investments, their significance to the PE industry and how managers take advantage of this boom which is taking the investment industry by storm.

Topics discussed will include:

  • The reasons behind the SPAC boom globally and in Asia- why PE firms and VCs are starting to launch or sponsor SPACs
  • Key considerations for Asian GPs when raising SPACs- structuring, timing, fundraising challenges
  • Seeking target companies in Asia- what are the top sectors, and is there a supply and demand issue in the region?
  • LP considerations and concerns towards SPACs – how do LPs view the market?
  • The future of SPACs- are they here to stay?
