TWO IPO PRICINGS EXPECTED TONIGHT
We have two more SPACS expected to price tonight – Osprey Technology and LGL systems. Osprey has already filed their 8-a12b and their CERT, so it looks to be a go. LGL Systems, on the other hand, was expected to price last night, but is still waiting on approval from the SEC. LGL has not filed their 8-a12b or CERT yet, but we should get some additional clarity on whether they price tonight once they do.
BIG ROCK PARTNERS ACQUISITION CORP. (BRPA)
Big Rock Partners Acquisition Corp. (BRPA) filed a preliminary proxy last night to extend their deadline.
