BAN2110 - Merging with a Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC), presented by Grant Thornton

‐ Sep 21, 2021 8:50am

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
