    Special Purpose Acquisition Company (SPAC), which is also known as a "blank check" company.

    The new daily SPAC file provides traders, brokers, analysts, and investment bankers the opportunity for an alternative approach to Initial Public Offerings (IPO).

    Stages in the SPAC process

    IPO Announced; IPO Complete; Business Combination Announced; Business Combination Complete; Liquidation

    The SPAC will explore partners for an acquisition/merger/business combination, some may decide to limit their search to specific industries or geographical areas. Typically, this tenor will be 24 months, with the option to extend by 3 to 6 months. The SPAC must liquidate after this point and return the contents of the trust account to the securities holders.If a target is identified, and an agreement reached, the parties will complete the appropriate legal and regulatory paperwork and processes.

    Completion of the transaction typically includes a change in name from the SPAC’s name to the target company’s name (or an approximation). Following the effective date the new entity will begin trading, under the new name.
