‘SPAC’ SAGA: THE ASIAN WAVERING

A Special Purpose Acquisition Company or SPAC is also known as a ‘blank cheque’ company, which are basically shell companies (without any commercial purpose), constituted ‘specially’ for acquiring a ‘target’ company, with the intention of the ‘target’ going public. Traditional IPOs have often been expressed as tediously time-consuming and expensive processes, and the alternative SPAC route provides relief for companies to avoid the incessant stress involved.
