Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) have been gaining traction during the past 18 months, although more recently they have come under the spotlight for more negative reasons. Following high-profile litigation associated with certain de-SPAC deals and statements from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), many investors are now starting to question SPACs as an investment vehicle of choice.
