Using a SPAC to Go Public

International and U.S. IPO Planning: A Business Strategy Guide (John Wiley & Sons, Inc.)

Brad Shiffman wrote a chapter of Frederick Lipman’s new book International and U.S. IPO Planning:  A Business Strategy Guide.  This chapter deals with the very recent phenomenon of forming publicly traded special-purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) with significant capital and having the private company merge into the SPAC.

This chapter is included in Part 3 of the book, which highlights traditional and nontraditional IPOs in the United States.
