NEO Presents: The Rise of the SPAC | Replay Now Available
Pioneered almost thirty years ago in the US, SPACs (Special Purpose Acquisition Companies – or “blank check companies”) have become all the rage for our neighbours to the south and the upward trend in popularity has found its way north of the border. Today’s SPAC market in Canada is growing rapidly.
In our latest NEO Presents webcast, we explored why SPACs are dominating headlines as a means to go public. Featuring BNN Anchor Catherine Murray as moderator, we heard from SPAC pioneer Steven Levine of EarlyBirdCapital as the keynote speaker, and our expert panelists: Joe Crouthers of Ceres Acquisition Corp.; Mike Abbott of Columbia Care; and Jos Schmitt of NEO, the stock exchange of choice for SPAC listings in Canada.
