by Kristi Marvin on 2023-12-18 at 8:04am

This week, in a special edition of the SPACInsider Podcast, SPACInsider founder Kristi Marvin speaks with Omeed Malik, Chairman and CEO of the Colombier SPACs.

We asked Omeed what brought him into the SPAC market and how his first SPAC, Colombier I, navigated the rapidly changing market as it closed in on its combination with PublicSquare (NYSE:PSQH).

He discusses the opportunity and risks at play in targeting companies in the “patriot economy” in a politically-charged environment. And, as a part of the new crop of serial SPAC sponsors that recently priced a second IPO with Colombier II (NYSE: CLBR.U), how does he see the product developing into 2024 and what changes could benefit sponsors, investors and targets alike?

Give it a listen
