Location: Virtual Presentation
Nixon Peabody partner, Michael Smith, will be presenting “SPACs in the Healthcare Sector: Structuring Transactions, Considerations and Challenges for Companies, Investors” at the Strafford CLE webinar.
Since the pandemic created uncertainty in the market, there has been an increase in special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). These shell companies take companies public without going through the traditional, lengthy IPO process. SPACs offer a cheaper, quicker, and often less risky path.
Healthcare SPACs bring new opportunities to market, and SPACs are helping investors get access. SPAC IPOs offer more certainty with pricing as both companies discuss and agree upon a specific deal, unlike the pricing fluctuation in a traditional IPO. Also, as a SPAC, there is much less scrutiny and nothing to disclose. Already in 2021, there have been some big SPAC deals in the healthcare sector.
Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines SPAC formation and structuring. The panel will discuss the benefits and considerations for both private and public companies. The panel will also discuss challenges for the parties involved and offer best practices for structuring SPAC IPOs.
