Special Purpose Acquisition Companies

What is a SPAC?

A SPAC is an investment vehicle formed through an Initial Public Offering (IPO) whose purpose is to acquire operating businesses.

Benefits of a SPAC

SPACs are efficient vehicles for raising capital through the IPO process, though without the typical IPO pricing risks. They provide equity capital for growth and investment without excessive debt and debt service costs. Since the SPAC is newly formed, investors don't face unexpected liabilities. SPACs provide for targeted, opportunistic business combinations by experienced management teams.

SPAC Process Simplified

A company is formed with the intent of conducting an IPO to raise capital to be used to acquire one or more to-be-determined businesses or assets. Management teams, known as SPAC Sponsors, provide general governance, conduct the IPO, and identify potential acquisition targets. SPAC Sponsors in general have 18-24 months to identify the acquisition target. When the combination is announced, SPAC shareholders may elect to either redeem their shares for cash held in trust or receive shares in the newly combined company.

Odeon's Value Proposition:

We look to engage with a Sponsor prior to the IPO to ensure preparedness, and work with them through all facets of the SPAC, from IPO, through merger close.

While many investment banks are strong in certain aspects of a successful SPAC, we pride ourselves in strong capabilities throughout the entire process, including the challenging DeSPAC process.

    Research is at the root of everything for Odeon and the core from which all ideas and actions originate.

    Our research team has one goal: to provide specific, actionable, and thoughtful investment analysis. The Odeon model of conflict free independent research is what sets us apart from our bulge bracket competitors. We strive to provide value for our clients in all our research efforts.

    Our published Fixed Income Research product explores the value in the high yield & distressed corporate securities universe. We provide in-depth industry insight as we target specific issuers and opportunities where we believe we can shine light into relatively underfollowed or uncovered investment opportunities.

    Our structured credit research group provides our sales team with comprehensive, granular valuation services. By exploring the precise nature of cash flows and underlying asset performance metrics, our group uncovers undervalued securities in a thoughtful manner.
