From the seminar website:
After a period of tremendous popularity, the SPAC market was at a near standstill from 2009 to 2011. There has been a reawakening in 2011, but limitations still exist. One contributing factor in this decline is the amount of time required for the SEC to review the disclosure documents relating to the business combinations that SPACs propose to engage in.
To overcome this challenge, a new structure called the IPACSM or "Innovated Public Acquisition Company," has entered the market. The IPACSM is designed to operate like a SPAC, but offers increased flexibility on pricing and deal structure and allows for a more rapid transaction cycle by permitting a business combination to be consummated prior to SEC review.
This web seminar with IPACSM creator Mitchell Nussbaum, partner and chair of Loeb & Loeb LLP's Securities Practice, will explore the structural elements of the IPACSM and the significant benefits of this groundbreaking new financing vehicle for investors and target companies.
Nuts and bolts of the IPACSM – composition of unit structure
Bifurcation of the regulatory process – enabling transactions to close in weeks rather than months
Key benefits – timing certainty, structuring/price flexibility
