With over 200 SPAC and IPO’s over the last year, SPACs are hotter than ever. US stocks continue to be unpredictable, finding the right opening to debut on Wall Street can be tricky and costly. But are SPAC’s the right approach for most Life Sciences companies seeking capital? Companies merging with a SPAC have the benefit of wider access to capital and greater market certainty. However, they need to be prepared for compliance with regulatory requirements set by the SEC.

Join BDO and McDermott Will & Emery for a discussion with Anna Marie Wagner, Senior Vice President, Corporate Development of Ginkgo Bioworks, around SPACs in the Life Sciences industry.

 

Specifically, we’ll discuss:

  • How to evaluate whether a SPAC is the right capital raising vehicle
  • What is unique about SPAC transactions for Life Science companies
  • Accounting considerations that can potentially derail valuation
  • How to mitigate risks and challenges associated with a SPAC deal

Learning objectives:

  • How to evaluate whether a SPAC is the right capital raising vehicle
  • How the new administration has affected the SPAC market
  • How to mitigate risks and challenges associated with a SPAC deal
