Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs)


Solomon Partners’ SPAC Advisory services include counseling clients on transactions with Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (“SPACs”). Solomon Partners advises both companies seeking to become public via a merger with a SPAC, as well as SPACs themselves seeking quality private companies with whom to combine. The firm is actively advising more than two dozen clients in SPAC-related transactions across the firm’s seven industry sectors. Most recently, Solomon Partners served as the sole financial advisor to Bakkt on its $2.7 billion merger with VPC Impact, a SPAC sponsored by Victory Park Capital.

Solomon Partners has expertise in emerging SPAC structures, including contingent promotes, corporate carve-outs and spin-offs into SPACS, emerging market SPAC targets, global SPAC listings, corporate SPACs, multi-target SPAC transactions, and sponsor exits into SPACs, among others.

For private companies considering potential SPAC merger partners, Solomon Partners actively tracks and assesses the quality of SPAC sponsors, their track records of success and their underlying capital. This enables Solomon Partners to more efficiently find the right combination partner to enhance the likelihood of post-SPAC success.

For SPACs looking for ideal target companies, Solomon Partners leverages its deep industry connections to identify suitable and actionable merger candidates.
