Special Purpose Acquisition Corporations (“SPAC”) is a corporation that raises capital through an IPO without having any assets or operations. The purpose of a SPAC is to acquire one or more operating companies and/or assets. The SPAC lists through an initial public offering. In Canada the two stock exchanges that permit the listing of SPACs are the Toronto Stock Exchange – TSX and the Neo Stock Exchange (now CBOE Canada). Both exchanges require a minimum IPO raise of $30 million or minimum market capitalization of $30 million upon listing respectively.
