7CPACcers have shorter periods to complete the SPAC transaction, with examples of only 12 months or more than 18 or 21 months. Many of them have features to automatically extend the deadline if a final agreement or memorandum of understanding is signed by the sponsor before the end of the specified period or after the introduction of additional capital into the receiver account. (return) It was at this point that SPAC began to seriously seek an acquisition purpose. SPACs typically have two years from the date of Ipo to complete an acquisition. This process is conducted in the same way as for any AM process. SPAC identifies and performs due diligence for potential targets. However, since shareholders can exchange shares, sponsors must closely monitor cash to ensure that there are sufficient funds to acquire the objective and manage post-closed operations. At this stage, private investment focuses on the financing of public equity (PIPE) of convertible debt securities, converted into shares of the private investor`s choice, thus diluting the equity of existing shareholders. The selection process ends with a final agreement between THE CAPS and an acquisition objective. The SPAcs enter into a correspondence agreement with their officers, directors and sponsors. The correspondence agreement may include, among other things, a voting agreement requiring executives, directors and sponsors to choose their founding shares and public shares, if any, for the benefit of the SPAC transaction and certain other issues, a blocking agreement, a sponsor blocking agreement for the compensation of the SPAC for certain claims that may be filed against the trust account , an obligation to compensate the founders as long as the green shoe is not fully exercised. , and an agreement not to sponsor other CAPS until SPAC concludes a final agreement for a SPAC transaction. The correspondence agreement also documents the agreement of senior executives, directors and sponsors to waive any right of withdrawal regarding their founding and public shares, if any, in connection with the SPAC transaction, an amendment to the SPAC charter to extend the deadline for the conclusion of the SPAC transaction or the failure of SPAC to complete the SPAC transaction within the prescribed time frame (although able to complete the SPAC transaction within the prescribed time frame).
, directors and sponsors are authorized to enter into withdrawal and liquidation rights to all public shares they hold if SPAC has not completed the SPAC transaction within the prescribed timeframe). The stock market settlement does not always require a vote by SPAC shareholders, but the structure of the SPAC transaction (for example.B. if SPAC does not survive a merger or is converted into another jurisdiction) may require a vote, and if more than 20% of the SPAC`s vote stock is issued in the De SPAC case (to the target transaction seller). , for PIPE investors or for a combination), stock market rules require a shareholder vote. This results in most of SPAC`s transactions in which SPAC shareholders are publicly voted, including filing a warrant with the SEC, auditing and notifying the SEC, sending the proxy statement to SPAC shareholders, and holding a shareholder meeting. The proxy process may take three to five months or more to complete from the date a final agreement for the SPAC transaction was signed. With respect to the closing of the IPO, SPAC funds a trust account generally equal to 100%  or more of the gross proceeds of the IPO, approximately 98% of the amount financed by public investors and 2% or more by the sponsor.
