In case you’re wondering what SPAC is: SPAC is a special purpose acquisition company. “Basically, a pile of cash reserved for a merger that went through the initial public offering (IPO) process. The entire point of the SPAC is to find a private company to merge with. When that happens, the target company essentially goes public without some of the hassles of the traditional IPO process.” - quoted from The Verge.
