Sep 21, 2021 9:00am ‐ Sep 21, 2021 9:50am

Standard: $49.00


Private companies are increasingly going public through an acquisition by a public special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), rather than through the traditional initial public offering (IPO) route. SPAC transactions can give rise to unique financial reporting and accounting issues.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify risks and benefits to this transaction alternative
  • Determine information required in SEC filings for a private operating company being acquired by a SPAC
  • Recognize key accounting considerations for the U.S. GAAP financial statements of the combined entity following a SPAC transaction
