Overview (Program Summary)

The special purpose acquisition company (or SPAC) is a phenomenon which has dominated the public capital markets in the US over the last two years, while the SGX has recently permitted SPAC listings and HKEX will follow suit from 1 January 2022. SPACs have had, and are set to continue to have, a significant impact for capital markets and M&A lawyers throughout Asia. The seminar will consider the offshore aspects of SPACs and, in particular, de-SPAC business combination deals in Asia, with a focus on Cayman law structuring and practice point considerations and case studies. The seminar will include a brief recap on SPAC structures more generally and will also briefly discuss the use of Bermuda, BVI and other offshore vehicles in the de-SPAC context.
