Latest SPAC News: Lordstown to sell $400 million in stock, the London Stock Exchange has its first SPAC listing, and Sebi explores framework for SPACs in India

Lordstown Is Selling Some Stock

Electric-vehicle startup Lordstown Motors Corp. reached a deal to sell as much as $400 million in stock over the next three years to an investment fund managed by Yorkville Advisors Global.

The terms allow the Ohio-based truckmaker to direct the fund to buy a tranche of Class A shares equal to as much as 30% of a day’s trading value of the stock or a block of $30 million, the EV maker said in a regulatory filing Monday.


U.K.’s SPAC Market Rouses From Its Slumber 

Almost eight months into 2021, the London Stock Exchange finally has its first listing of a SPAC for the year. The deal is likely to be a harbinger of more, bigger offerings to come, according to Bloomberg.

The tiny blank-check firm, Spinnaker Acquisitions Plc, surged as much as 25% Wednesday after raising 2 million pounds ($2.77 million).


Sebi Exploring Framework for SPACs in India, Says Chairman Tyagi

The Primary Market Advisory Committee of Sebi is exploring whether the regulator should introduce a framework for SPACs in India, chairman Ajay Tyagi said today at a FICCI event.

“We have few other proposals in pipeline that are in the early discussion stage – IPO reforms on the book building & fixed price framework and provisions relating to price band and further reforms on preferential issue – being some of them,” Tyagi said.


A SPAC Earnings Disaster Has Advent Facing $800 Million Loss

ATI Physical Therapy Inc., in its earnings debut as a public company following a merger with a blank-check firm, revised its revenue projections sharply lower and disclosed larger-than-expected staff turnover. ATI’s shares closed Tuesday at $3.82, down 54% over the span of two days and ranking it among the worst-performing companies to have gone public via a SPAC.

Earlier this month, the company pulled a $570 million loan transaction to refinance its capital structure. The offering, led by Barclays Plc, was the first to be withdrawn from syndication since late May.

Boston-based Advent, with $75 billion in assets under management, owns about 62.9% of ATI, according to filings, and is now facing a paper loss of about $800 million.
